We're finishing a human body unit study that has lasted many months and included lots of STEM activities from both My Creative Box and Kiwico, the 1998 BBC documentary series The Human Body, Magic School Bus episodes, lots of books, puzzles, games, and of course imaginative play as various health professionals who mostly use bandages and a stethoscope! Mum gets a few minutes to lay on the couch as a patient of course!
These activities were complimented by some Twinkl resources such as their My Body Activity Pack for Kids. There are so many printable resources online to teach most themes, and we choose those which appeal to Zeah. Mazes used to be the favourite, but wordsearches are becoming her most frequently requested activity sheets.
Zeah enjoyed some anatomy classes through Outschool where they built body parts such as the inner ear with playdough while learning facts about that body system. Including hands-on activities really appeals to her learning style.
Overall, this theme offered endless possible learning activities, and it will be one we revisit every couple of years throughout Zeah's home ed journey.
