This kit with 9 lessons is designed to be an introduction to the systems of the human body, the names and functions of major body parts, and where these parts are located. Additionally, students are introduced to the major function of each body system. To launch the unit, read Me and My Amazing Body to the class. Next have each student lay on a large sheet of paper and have a partner trace his/her shape. As each body system is studied, students cut out, color, and label body parts and add them to their outline. The kit includes teacher information, read-aloud books for each body system, and all the blacklines needed for the project. The body systems studied in order are: skeletal, muscular, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and nervous. Students personalize their paper bodies by drawing their face and adding hair. It is suggested that students put on a “body show” to share what they have learned with their parents or another class. Implicit in this unit of study is an appreciation for the human body and the importance of taking good care of it.
