If you have been following my blog, you know that as a family we have spent the past year living and loving nature studies. We have also spent time learning the phases of the moon, in preparation for a big Solar System unit. So with all that said, we only dabbled in Anatomy this year. We spent a little bit of time the past few months learning about how our bodies work. Here is a small peek at how much the boys learned with the Apologia Anatomy and Physiology Science.

Cells… What a fun activity to go along with all the learning. I wrote about our week of cells here. I included links to blogs that I used for their great ideas and free printables.
The boys put together the life size skeleton puzzle. If you are interested in free online resources visit Spell outloud. She has a lot of great information and ideas that she did with her Anatomy co-op.
This skeleton puzzle was a great find from the $1.00 section in Target. Love it!!
Here is Blakey testing out his strength by attempting to break a chicken bone in half.
Ahhhhhhhhh look at what’s inside our bones, curious? Check this link out to see.
Blakey wouldn’t go near the open/broken bone. He found it completely disgusting. I’m guessing he probably won’t be a doctor. Blazey really thought the whole experiment was interesting and wanted to learn more.
The breaking of a wishbone…
I love seeing the boys work together on another great science experiment.
