Seven (7) engaging, inquiry-based lessons to help students learn about their body (external and internal). Although the focus is science-based, the lessons are transdisciplinary, incorporating language arts, math, science, social studies, and even physical education (movement).
Lesson 1: Kick-off, What Do I Want to Know?
Lesson 2: Mirror Me (External Body Parts)
Lesson 3: My Face (Lesson 1)
Lesson 4: My Face (Lesson 2)
Lesson 5: All of Me: That I Can See (External Body Parts)
Lesson 6: My Body: Skin and Nerves
Lesson 7: My Body: Skeleton and Joints
The lessons address the following essential questions:
• What are the parts of my body?
• What do the parts of my body do?
• What would happen if I didn't have that body part?
• How can I use my body to communicate?
(Note: These lessons are also available individually or within an All About Me bundled lessons document to learn not only about one's body, but also likes, dislikes, opinions, and similarities/differences compared to other students in the class.)
