This is our last week of cell activities. Next we will be moving onto the respiratory and circulatory systems while continuing to follow David Macaulay's The Way We Work as a guide for our activities.
Before playing memory we did a quick review. Throughout our cell activities we have discovered that;
atoms combine to make molecules
molecules combine to make proteins
proteins combine to make organelles such as cell walls, mitochondria, and DNA
organelles combine to make cells
cells combine to make tissues
tissues combine to make organs
organs combine to make body systems
Laying out the chain was a great way to help the kids remember what we have done.
The kids have been watching the Once Upon a Time Life videos as part of our science curriculum. Through the videos they have become familiar with several of the human body systems as well as the organs contained within the systems.
I had them name as many systems and organs as they could and then we drew lines to connect which organs went with which systems. I was surprised by how much they learned from the videos. They were able to name all but one of the body systems.
