The Skeletal System: Part 4 of 5

The Skeletal System: Part 4 of 5 Breakfast Biscuits Meets Skeletal System Our children love to help out in the kitchen. We had a treat one day during our skeletal system study and decided to bake a cinnamon sugar biscuit hand. This was so much fun to do with them! They quickly learned all of the parts of the hand from the phalanges to the metacarpals all the way down to the carpals.

Each piece they grabbed for, I had them tell me which bone it was and where in their hand it was located. What a f

The Skeletal System: Part 3 of 5

The Skeletal System: Part 3 of 5 This is one of may favorite activities within our skeletal system series. I actually held this activity off to the side for a while before we were able to get to it. The kids were so eager to figure out what Mama had been working on and preparing for a special homeschool day. Joints Our children were fascinated with the kinds of joints God created for us to move. By playing with each model, they were able to see the difference between the joints and what the functions were for each.

The Skeletal System: Part 2 of 5

The Skeletal System: Part 2 of 5 Our children have been absolutely fascinated with learning about the human body. Who wouldn't be? Our Creator in His mighty power, made our bodies so beautiful and so complex. Through this activity, we had the opportunity to talk about how God created all creatures, however when he made man in His own image. "So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1:27. I'm happy to share all of these activities within my skeletal system series and many more human body activities with you in hopes it will be a blessing to your homeschool.

The Skeletal System: Part 1 of 5

The Skeletal System: Part 1 of 5 I'm constantly in awe of the complexity of the human body. It's interesting how as moms, we plan and plan the curriculum for our homeschool year, yet sometimes it just doesn't go as we thought it might. As I've mentioned in a previous blog post, at the beginning of our school year we decided that most of our studies would be centered around astronomy. I decorated our homeschool room with spaceships and telescopes to make it interesting for the kiddos to learn about space. About 2 weeks into school this year, our oldest son started to take a huge interest in anatomy and physiology. I found myself taking them to the library and having them answer their own ques

Robotics and Coding Part 1

Robotics and Coding Part 1 Our children have really taken an interest in coding and robotics lately. Assuming that coding will likely be as important for them as reading in the future, I am running with this interest. Any additional coding classes that I can place them into outside of homeschool, along with coding and robotics books or toys we can put in their hands, we have incorporated into our learning. Below are some great coding and robotics resources to start with that I'd like to share with all of you.
