This post wraps up our human body unit! It has been a fun year of learning about the various systems in our body and how they all work together to keep us alive! What a marvelous creator we have!

The Immune System:
I was gone for this lesson, so my class got to sit in with the older kids. The older students were testing for bacteria and fungi. Each student got a cotton swab and rubbed it on various surfaces. They noted which surface was swabbed and then rubbed the cotton swab on agar in a petri dish.
I pulled out our human body magnetic board. We reviewed the organs and the names of the bones. This board also comes with flashcards, so we reviewed with those too.
I placed all the organ cards face-down on the table. I also gave each student a print-out of the human body and a tub of Play-doh.
A student would draw a card, name the organ, and then all the students would create that organ out of Play-doh on put it in the correct place on the print-out. I left up the magnetic pieces so they could use that as a reference.
We worked hard this year learning the names of some of the bones in our skeletal system. For this review, I used the flashcards in the same way as above, but all the kids worked together to create a Play-doh skeleton.
I’ve enjoyed documenting and sharing this series with you! If you want to see what we covered this year, check out my Human Body Unit pages.
