Human Body Unit
This packet will help your kindergarten and first grade students learn, understand, and practice using the science terms used when talking about the human body. It also will provide you with resources to make your unit come to life. By integrating science and nonfiction into your language lessons, you not only create an enthusiasm in your students, but you can create the "hook" you need to engage even the most reluctant learners.
This packet includes many resources including: 3 part cards, (nomenclature), vocabulary pictures (great for ELL students), center activities, art projects, craft ideas, STEM/STEAM activities, flip books, interactive notebook resources, recording pages, printables, student books, fully written out 5-E lesson plans, language, writing, art, science activities and more!
Students will learn and use these vocabulary words:
eye, nose, tongue, hand, ear, elbow, back, feet, toes, fingers, mouth, teeth, shoulder, x-ray, thermometer, chest, medicine, scale, sphygmomanometer, reflex hammer, otoscope, stethoscope, skeleton, eye chart, brain, heart, liver, lungs, stomach, large intestine, small intestines, kidneys
Each word has a vocabulary card (with an authentic picture). My students love being able to make real life connections from looking at the high quality photographs.
