Human Body Lapbook

A Homeschool Unit Study

We all have one! We use it every moment of every day-- your incredible human body! What a personal and relevant topic of study for any child!

For the younger students, your study may focus primarily on anatomy, so you will explore the body's organs and body's systems. For older students you may extend the study into physiology and add in the functioning of the human body, including its systems, tissues, and cells.

Browse the ideas and links here to plan your human body lapbook, notebook, or unit study.

These photos show the human body lapbook made by my daughter during her first grade year when we used Sonlight Science 1. I hope that they will give you inspiration to create your own lapbook! (Many of the graphics and ideas came from the Scholastic Easy Make and Learn Projects book linked below.)

At what age did your daughter do the Human Body lap book?

anonymous 9 years ago

We just finished a human body study ourselves. We used Usborne's Internet Linked First Encyclopedia of the Human Body, Janice Van Cleave's The Human Body for Every Kid, and The Body Book by Scholastic Professional Books. The Body Book was a great book full of reproducible models for kids to color and put together. Each model had information on that model and things to discuss. We really liked using this, maybe others would too. Blessings!

Thank you so much for pulling this all together. I'm trying to squeeze Anatomy into a 3-week period this summer for my K & 3rd kiddos. Your work will save me lots and lots of time. I really, really appreciate your sharing this!

I'm embarrassed that I haven't taken more time to explore your wonderful lenses, especially the lapbooks. They are so awesome!! My daughter is on a constant quest for information and it's so hard to find trusted and age appropriate information for her to research online. I don't homeschool, but my girls attend an amazing Montessori that I am grateful for every single day. Thank you!!

I just ordered a human body book that comes with a dvd from Books Are Fun. I'm looking around at all your stuff now. Jasmine is so into the math mini office I think she can get in to this.

Oh my goodness....after searching the web for lapbooks on the human body, I came across your site. I am impressed and don't need to look any further. Thanks so much for the info. I teach a science class to a couple of homeschool families and found everything I needed. Can't wait to pass on this valuable resource.

Jimmie, I'm teaching an anatomy class at our co-op and I really need some ideas for our muscles lesson on Friday. I have 21 children ages 5-9 (mostly boys), so I'm thinking something active. We read a story and did notebook pages for bones last week and that was OK, but I don't have a storybook for muscles and, like I said, I'd really like something more active this week. The class is after a phys ed class, but still. . . Any ideas????

Biology used to my favorite subject at school, and I really like human anatomy. I switched to commerce when I entered college. Thought it would help me make big bucks. Still trying 10 years after I finished college.
