Hands-On-Minds-On Science: Our Bodies. Early Childhood.
Children are naturally curious about their bodies and how they work. This book utilizes this natural interest to usher children into an age-appropriate study of the human body. The guided discovery lesson plans in this book consist of four parts: the question, the discovery process, the summary of what scientists know, and a real-life application. The question which begins the lesson causes children to enter the discovery experience using an open-end thinking process rather than a one-answer thinking process. Lessons are grouped under the following headings: Why is my body special?, Who is the boss of this body?, and "Every Body" has five senses. Also included are body builder activity cards which are step-by-step instructions for building a life-sized model of the inside of the body. Contains 52 references. (MKR)
