Systems of the Body: Adventure Series (Dr. Bonyfide)
Learning is meant to be an adventure and this theme-based series provides a cross curricular adventure your children won’t easily forget! Self-pacing adventures offer a quick start guide, pacing calendar (each Adventure has a suggested pacing of 14-15 hours; or approx. 1 month), supply checklist, numerous activities and step-by-step projects, a time traveling comic, recipes, and an introduction to the human body topic, fun history facts and geography! Each topical adventure begins with a brightly illustrated “Time Skaters Adventure” graphic novel to get children excited about learning. Following this, are the textual pages that dive into the history, geography, and science. Pages are well-illustrated with a larger font making it easier for younger ones to read and see key information. Activity workbook pages vary. Coloring, drawing, fill-in- the-blank, and crosswords are examples. Hands-on projects are well thought out and use easy to find items. In the chapter entitled The Circulatory System, students learn how blood flows by creating mock plasma with red and white blood cells. In The Skeletal System, students build a human skeleton using the included templates. Learners are also introduced to the Cyrillic alphabet and common Russian phrases. Cooking Classes include recipes that align with the historical time-period and location of the adventure. Here is a sampling of the yummy recipes included: Koftas with yogurt sauce, Sushki (Russian tea bread), and Chinese Dumplings. Books conclude with a cumulative review and include summarizing information or open-ended journaling or application questions. Answers to the Activity worksheets are included. Additional reading resources are also included. Spark lifelong learning with this fun and engaging introduction to our bodies and history. Your children will thank you! Not reproducible.
