Hello everyone! Since it's the month of Halloween, we're doing a series of Halloween-related activities. And my son picked the The Human Skeleton first. We used our Human Skeleton Nomenclature Cards and a model (bought this at a Euro store).
We did the three lesson period and here, he matches the picture cards and the label to the control cards.
Since I have multiple pieces of those skeleton models, I cut out the parts, place them on a card stock and added label. I read the definition of each part of the skeleton as my son observes them using a magnifying glass :) Then he assembled the pieces (just like a puzzle) to form the entire human skeleton.
One activity he loved the most is the coloring and labeling of his favorite parts. He enjoys this kind of activity. This activity sheet is included in the The Human Skeleton file.
Another version of puzzle is the printed skeleton which I downloaded from here. I told him he can form the skeleton in any way he wants it, like if he wants the skeleton to run, jump,walk or just stand. You can also get a much bigger version of this puzzle from here.
This his dancing skeleton.
We also talk about the foods that makes our skeleton healthy (he's been eating yogurt, cheese and drinking milk religiously since then).
For visual and animation, we watched this video of Make Me Genius. It helped a lot in understanding how our skeletal system works.
Hoping some of this ideas would help you in your homeschool adventure. Have a nice weekend everyone!
