We are going to be working on the body systems and making a "body" with all the different systems layered on... Well im gonna try this lol.. I figure we would start with the skeleton system... Does any one have any good resources for this or any of the other body systems.. Also print outs would be great!... Also cheaper the better... this will be for the 3-5th grade level also btw.. Im also trying to figure out how to go about doing this "unit" so that im including enough information but so that its not extreamly "thick".. if that makes sense.. Any help thoughts or ideas would be great... and thanks in advance... we "hopefully" will start this today!!


edit.... ok besides the ideas and stuff for ways to do the projects.. im looking for lessons and etc also... I pretty much have been putting together our lessons myself and science is one of them i hava a hard time doing... one of the reasons going to be getting some sort of curriculum soon..

When we do the second one there, we use a plastic bag to actually make the lungs "work"; we put vinegar in a plastic bag with a saltine cracker to make a "working stomach"....we put two long sticks togther and tie on a rubber band to make a "working muscle and joint."

thanks... those will help... we are going to attempt a full size body with all the layers too...

Quoting bluerooffarm:

Every other year we do the body systems.
