Our Human Body Montessori Activities

As I mentioned in a previous post I have moved Gabe’s trays off of a book shelf, and added our Science Unit Studies to the shelves. This is a look at those new science shelves! On them currently are our Human Body Montessori Activities.
 The top shelf has our skeleton model and nomenclature cards, the 5 layer body puzzle, and the 2 book I made from Reading A-Z. Inside Your Body, and Jenna Loves Yoga (to go along with our daily yoga).
The second shelf down we have our Nutrition Labeling activity, see it more in depth in a previous post. Next to that is our Hands Puzzle.
The third shelf down has our vegetable and fruit sort felt set, next to that is The Food I Eat book I made from Reading A-Z.
We have our Skeleton Model and our Skeletal nomenclature cards from Montessori Print Shop, next to that is the 5 layer Human Body puzzle.
Here is a close up of the Skeletal Nomenclature Cards.
Close up of the 3 books I printed off and bound together to use for leveled readers for our Human Body Unit. All 3 came from Reading A-Z.com.
I found this great book at Sams Club last week that is now on our Human Body book shelf, it has amazing pictures, lots of facts and comes with the posters in the 2 pictures below!
Both posters have been a great reference to the kids when it has come to naming bones, and muscles!
