A fun and meaningful way to introduce human anatomy to young children!
I am so thrilled to be able to guest post for Deborah today; what an honor! I’m Asia and I write over at Fun at Home with Kids. I’m a former teacher (M. Ed) who now stays home full time with my two kiddo; X, a one year old, and S, a four year old. S has been very interested in learning about human bodies and anatomy for about a year now. I was a Biology major in undergrad and kept my Anatomy textbooks, which she loves to peruse. She’s also recently discovered the allure of the Magic School Bus inside the Human Body Book. I’m always looking for ways to make concepts S is interested in more accessible to her. I have seen so many amazing models of human bodies, but I felt like their small size left a bit to be desired. So I settled on creating a life-sized felt double of her body to teach her a bit more about anatomy.
