Giveaway: Human Body Science Pack

on August 4, 2012

Today’s giveaway, the fourth and final giveaway in our Curriculum Clean-Out, is for a collection of books to help young learners understand how the human body works. Titles include …

The first title, Play and Find Out about the Human Body, is a collection of 50 easy experiments for preschoolers through second graders. Each activity begins with a question, followed by a simple experiment, an explanation of the results, and related activities. If you have a child who asks questions about everything, this is the book for you. Our copy has been loved and shows definite signs of use, though the binding is still tight and there are no rips or tears. (We’re parting with it only because we’ve upgraded to Janice VanCleave’s Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects.)

The second title, Make It Work: Body, is a collection of models, artistic representations, and experiments to help elementary students visualize and understand the workings of the human body. This book is geared toward 3rd-6th graders. Younger children could probably understand the concepts presented, but would need assistance with the projects. This book is in excellent condition.

The third title, You and Your Body, introduces 4- to 8-year-olds to the basic workings of the human body and outlines steps they can take to keep their bodies healthy. It includes simple experiments and thought-provoking questions. This book is in like-new condition.

The fourth title, The Human Body, is a part of Scholastic’s Science Reader series, and is meant to be one that kindergartners and first graders can read on their own. It is new.
