When we started our human body unit study we were excited to learn about all the free resources. By the way, don’t forget to grab the activities we have done so far, which are DIY Stethoscope, DIY Heart Pump and Rigid vs. Flexible bone. You can grab the activities at the link for the human body unit study.
However, all these free and wonderful human body homeschool unit study resources can be an unwieldy beast to tame as they took over my page.
That is unless they are organized of course so we can use them. Plus, I don’t want you to miss out on any super duper ideas when you start your human body unit study.

So I have organized the resources by grade where possible just to give you an idea of where to start and then by topic like craft or teacher guides.
