Human Body Life Size Posters!

We are continuing our Stayin' Alive unit on the human body and animals.  The kids already love this one, but who am I kidding? I knew they would!

We started off learning about the bones and making skeletons {perfect Halloween decorations!}.  You can read all about that HERE.  Then, we made life-size body posters from butcher paper...


Listening to all of the silly giggles while they were tracing and cutting was seriously so fun for me!  I love watching my firsties love learning!  We have been reading about a different organ or muscle each day.  We charted our learning through shared research...



During Science, we charted heart, brain, muscles, lungs, kidneys, and the digestive system.  In writing, we used this shared research to write an informative paragraph about each organ or muscle.  Read more about that HERE.

Also, during Science, our table groups worked together to color, cut and glue their organ/muscle on their human body posters.  They even did a great job of adding capillaries to their lungs!

Check out this awesome tiny head and big brain.  One of the sweeties in this group said, "Look, our body's brain looks like a 'fro!"  Have I mentioned lately, how much I love listening to 6 year olds??

Check out this activity and more--including a mini-me poster version, anchor chart templates and a my body journal--in my Human Body Mini-Unit!  And try it out for FREE here!
