Watch Me Grow: Fun Ways to Learn about Cells, Bones, Muscles, and Joints

 

Suggested for children ages five to nine, this is an excellent book for introducing anatomy and physiology. It combines information, data recording, graphing, and hands-on activity in a very balanced fashion. Younger children might do more of the activities and less of the written work than older children, but there's plenty here to involve a wide age span of children.

Interestingly, the book starts with children observing and charting plant growth as a lead-in to observations about their own bodies. Many of the best time-tested activities are included: e.g., making cells out of colored dough, chicken bone in vinegar, and making full-size outlines of children's bodies. These and other activities require simple resources, almost all of which can be found around the house.

In addition, there are some reproducible, cut-and-paste activity pages plus trivia and bingo match-up type games. This is a particularly good way to introduce children to graphing and other forms of recording and displaying data.
