Blood and Guts – Lapbook: Lesson 3

Standard

As we continue through our body-discovery, our lapbooks continue to grow.  And grow.

We just finished up Lesson 3:  The Muscular System, using Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology.

Lapbook:  Lesson 1 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 2 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 4 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 4B can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 6 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lessons 7 and 8 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 9 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 10 can be found here.

Lapbook:  Lesson 11 can be found here.

Here are the parts I added for Lesson 3:

L3 Lapbook – Illustration of tendons and muscles – This is an illustration of muscles and tendons for the kids to color.

L3 Lapbook – Analyzing Beef Brisket – Draw what is seen when looking closely at beef brisket.

L3 Lapbook – Antagonistic Muscles – This is a supplemental foldable.

L3 Lapbook – Cardiac Muscle – This is a supplemental foldable.

L3 Lapbook – Drawing of a Muscle – Draw and label the parts of a muscle, found in the book.

L3 Lapbook – Masseter Muscle and Tetanus – This is a supplemental foldable.

L3 Lapbook – Muscle Tests – This is a place to record the results of doing different muscle tests.  We chose eating a cracker for the smooth muscle, timing our heartbeat for the cardiac muscle, and opening and closing a clothespin for the skeletal muscle tests.

L3 Lapbook – Muscle Weight – This is a card to record how much the student has in muscle weight.

L3 Lapbook – Muscular Diseases and Disorders – This is a supplemental card.

L3 Lapbook – My Biggest Muscle – This is a supplemental foldable.

L3 Lapbook – Skeletal Muscles – This is a supplemental foldable.

L3 Lapbook – Tendons – Tendonitis – This is a supplemental foldable.

Here are the test and answer key:

Blood and Guts – Practicing our Facial Muscles

Standard

The kids in my class really crack me up.  It was nothing new with this fun project!

Lesson 3 is all about the Muscular System, so we practiced using our facial muscles, and the pictures are hilarious!

Of course, I had to get in on the fun:

Goofing around with Mrs. Darby.

My class should be dubbed the “Nut House.”

Blood and Guts – Moveable Tendon Hand

Standard

Kids sure do like things that move!

We’re studying Lesson 3 Anatomy (Blood and Guts), which is the Muscular System, so we made hands with working tendons and moving fingers.

Yes, these will go into our insanely-growing lapbooks.

To make these, you’ll need the following for each student:

1 sheet of construction paper

5 drinking straws

string

5 pony beads

tape

scissors

 

Before the class, cut the string into 18″-lengths.  I used the unraveling-kind of string, so I had to melt the ends.  Each student will need 5.  Also, cut 2 V-shaped notches in each straw.  Have the students trace their hand, and about 1-inch of arm, past the wrist, onto the construction paper.  Remind them to be careful about keeping the pencil straight up and down, or they’ll end up with super-skinny digits!  Cut out the hands.  Tape the straws to each of the fingers, keeping the notches up.  Clip any excess straw that goes beyond the palm.  Tie a bead to the end of one of a string, and feed it through the straw.  Once all the strings are through, tie all the strings together in a large knot.  Make the fingers move by gently pulling on one string at a time.  To glue this into your lapbook, Put glue on the back of the palm and wrist only.  Do NOT put glue on the fingers, or it won’t work!
