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.

And now for the pictures of how to put it all together:
This shows the first layout, showing all the file folder pieces used, and the first part of the Lesson 7 pieces.
In this picture, I folded up the bottom, so we can concentrate on the top.
Here’s a close-up of the layout for this panel.
Another close-up of a panel.
The top-most panel
Here’s the top-most panel folded down.
Here’s the top left panel folded in.
The panel folds down to the center area.
When we open that top panel back up (through the magic of the internet), we see Lesson 8’s parts.
The bottom panel is folded down to reveal a heart model.
The left panel is opened.
Here’s the entire Lessons 7 and 8 lapbook section opened.
