Human Body Unit Study Resources


Human Body Resources

 

Graphic provided  by The Graphics Fairy

 

 

We did a study unit on the human body about 3 years ago. The kids had a blast with it!!

 

Human Body

Here is the finished human body sticker poster from the Magic School Bus Human Body Science Kit.

 

 

Human Body 1

This is the cover of Cailey’s lapbook. She filled in the organs and some of the muscles and bones.

I wish I had taken more pictures of our activities but this was before I started blogging.

 

I found a TON of great resources, even more than I found 3 years ago!

 

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$$.

Vincent van Gogh – Unit Study Resources


van Gogh Unit Study Resources

 

Vincent van Gogh is one on my all time favorite artists. There’s just something about his works, his style,  that speak to me. I love the colors and textures of his painting. Beautiful.

Tomorrow is his Birthday and I thought it would be the perfect time to put together some resources for a unit study.

 

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

Butterfly Resources

 

 

We are right in the middle of our butterfly kit!! Our caterpillars JUST forms their chrysalides this weekend! YAY!!!

 

Butterfly Kit

 

This is what our caterpillars looked like when we got them in the mail on February 28th.

 

Caterpillars

 

This is what they looked like just a day or 2 before they started making their chrysalides.

 

Chrysalides

 

Here are the chrysalides that were made over the weekend!

 

I worried that I jumped the gun on ordering the caterpillars but the kit says as long as it is above 55 degrees when you release them then they will be OK. SHEW!!!

We should have painted lady butterflies in 7 – 10 days!! YAY!!!

I purchased our kit at Toys R Us but you can get the same kit on Amazon. WOW! I should have waited and bought mine there! LOL It’s on sale right now!!!

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

Michelangelo Resources


Michelangelo Resources

 

 

 

Today, March 6th, is Michelangelo’s Birthday! I’ve put together a list of resources to study this amazing artist.

Hopefully my power will stay on long enough for me to finish this! It’s flickering today! It was out twice on Monday, once for 3 hours and once for 7 hours. Then it was out again on Tuesday for a couple of hours. I am writing this on Wednesday and praying that the power stays on ALL DAY TODAY!!!

We just had our 3rd ice storm of this winter and it’s by far the worst. We lost a ginormous tree in our backyard. We were so very fortunate that it just scraped the house instead of falling on it.

ANYWAY, on to the resources!

Alaska – Resources for a Unit Study


us state alaska stamp clipart

Clip art from Classroom Clipart

I meant to have this up DAYS ago but things got a little hectic around here. Friday was impossible! Saturday wasn’t much better. Now it’s Sunday afternoon and I finally have time to sit down and put this together!

Have you all been following the Iditarod??? It started Saturday! I put together a list of resources for the Iditarod and thought you all might like to expand it with a study on Alaska!

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or CurrClick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options. ;)

Also, you really don’t HAVE to use books with most of these units. I always provide links with information about the topics. But the books are always too fun to pass  up. ;)

Colin's Polar Bear

 

Here’s a picture from the last time we studied polar bears. We used puffy paint made from one part shaving cream to one part school glue.

I drew the shape of a polar bear and he filled it in with the paint. Then he made paw prints with the paint brush.

 

Polar bear Cupcakes

These are the polar bear paw print cupcakes that I made. I used Thin Mints for the big part and Junior Mints for the small parts.
