In science we have been learning about the human body in Connor’s science book. (I LOVE this book!)
Here are some of the activities we’ve done to go along with this theme (note: the activities were on my own and didn't come from the book):
I cut out and laminated Mr. Silly Bones and Connor put him together.
He then labeled him. With help from mommy :)
He also did some worksheets from his Preschool Fun book.
Here is a picture of himself he made.
We recently went to our local science museum where we saw real human and animal brains! I was totally fascinated by this! Connor… not so much.
Connor drew ‘healthy’ and ‘non-healthy’ foods.
On the healthy side he made broccoli, peas, a peach, bread, a cup of milk and a banana. On the non-healthy side he drew a potato chip, lollipop, cupcake and a mint (lol for candy).
We did a super easy experiment called The Tapping Finger. Connor sat at the table and tapped his finger loudly on the table.
Then he put his ear to the table and loudly tapped it again. The result? The sound is much louder when your ear is pressed to the table. Solids carry sound much better than air because the molecules in wood are closer together than molecules in the air.
You can also go HERE to see our germ experiment.
We read these GREAT books:
(The Glow-In-The-Dark Book Of Human Skeletons, by Michael Novak)
The Magic School Bus also has some great books and videos about the human body. We read and watched a bunch and my kids LOVED them.
