Many lessons involve coloring, drawing, or modelling. Learners will need coloring supplies and polymer clay to complete the unit.
Learners will draw a human cell, human eye, human ear. They will create a polymer clay model of the digestive system and build functional models of a heart and lungs. They will also complete coloring sheets of the heart, lungs, and parts of the head involved in creating speech.
Other lessons will involve creating your own dental chart (a fun keepsake to look back on later), sorting blood components, labeling parts of the brain, finding types of bones and joints on a skeleton, filling out a chart of the eight senses including how they keep you safe and make life more wonderful, and many more.
