Human Body Lapbook

Updated on June 11, 2015

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.)

      I am a cosmetology teacher with students at various learning abilities. With your sight the students who are not as quick to learn as other learns they are able to keep up and understand information better. One of the best sights I have found

    • LilliputStation profile image

      LilliputStation 7 years ago

      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????

      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.

      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!!

      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!
