Human Body Project

For the month of February our school encourages the students to participate in Jump Rope For Heart. February is also the common health month including heart healthy. I decided to switch my science curriculum to incorporate the human body. Below is the outline for how the unit was taught. Feel free to download it. After I had taught a Human Body unit to a 2nd grade gifted class back in 2009, I decided that I wanted to take some of those key elements and apply them to what Kindergarteners could learn about the Human Body. After some research I narrowed down the topics to the following four systems:

1. Skeletal System
2. Digestive System
3. Circulatory System
4. Respiratory System

These were the best systems for children to understand. I found that as the unit progressed they were able to remember all the functions of each of the systems. You can download my unit outline to see how I completed the unit with the students.

Several of my materials are below that are free to download. I will post photos of the projects as they progress.

My model for the students. They had to come up with the 4 facts that we had learned about the human heart.
