Science: Our Bodies

For our first semester of Science this year, we are learning about our bodies!

I dont have a set curriculum for this unit. I set off with the goal of giving the kids a brief overview of how our bodies work.

We decided to take an inside out approach, so we started with the organs. We will spend a week on each organ, learning it’s basic functions and parts.

1. Lungs

2. Heart

3. Stomach, Intestines, Colon (Digestive System & Nutrition)

8. Brain

Next, we will spend a week learning about each of the next layers of our bodies.

1. Muscles

2. Bones

3. Eyes

4. Teeth

5. Skin

We will spend the last week reviewing our bodies as a whole and how all of the layers work together!
