Hi guys! I hope you guys are having an amazing week. We recently covered the heart and circulatory system in our science curriculum. This was a heavy chapter full of information, to insure the boys understood everything we supplemented with videos and hands on activities. Here are some of our favorite.
Edible Heart Model:
Activity from apologia anatomy and physiology text book.
completed model. It was really messy but really worth it.
We used hot wheels to review how the blood travels around the body. Blue cars for deoxygenated blood and red cars for oxygenated blood.
This was a fun hands on way to help them remember all the names of the veins arteries involved.
We also watched a Bill Nye video to help drive home the concepts we learned in the book.
Mini Anchor Chart:
I love making anchor charts with the boys. It helps them recall information that we read about and we can display it to review.
I hope some of these activities I shared will help you in your studies.
