We have had snow day after snow day after snow day here! You’re probably wondering what homeschoolers do when there’s snow days. Well, we sled and shovel, just like everyone else. Also, remember that we have a large co-op, and we meet in an actual school building. It really makes us appreciate the on-the-couch-in-pjs days. However, this year has been a little more than unusual, and we’ve been trying to conduct school on a hot-or-miss basis. And just in case Old Man Winter hasn’t heard it from the rest of the nation, we’re DONE with it. Spring, please hurry up.
I decided to combine Lessons 7 and 8, because they work hand-in-hand. In Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology, Lesson 7 is Life in the Blood, and Lesson 8 is the Cardiovascular System.
For this section of our World’s Largest Mammoth Lapbooks, I used parts from Knowledge Box Central ( Chapters 1-7 can be found here. Chapters 8-14 can be found here), Scholastic’s The Body Book, by Donald M. Silver and Patricia J. Wynne, Scholastic: Easy Make & Learn Projects: The Human Body (it’s downloadable – yes!), and my own foldables, available below.
This section will be attached to the main lapbook, behind the lung section.
L7 Experiment – Iron in Cereal (experiment card)
L7 Lapbook – Diagram of Diffusion (Draw, color, and label the diagram of diffusion on pg. 122.)
L7 Lapbook – Erythrocytes (What does this word mean, and where does it come from?)
L7 Lapbook – oxygenated blood (Color the oxygenated blood cell red, and the deoxygenated blood cell blue.)
L7 Lapbook – What is Blood Made of (When you do the project suggested in the book, draw the red hots, lima bean, etc. in the jar and tell what each one represents on the inside.)
L7 Pictures (Pictures you can include in your lapbook.)
L8 Lapbook – Sedentary Lifestyle (The kids’ favorite foldable so far this year!)
L8 Pictures (Pictures you can include in your lapbook.)
And now for the pictures of how to put it all together:
