Jr. Anatomy is updated!

Homeschool anatomy curriculum

Our Jr. Anatomy curriculum has been updated!

http://www.guesthollow.com/…/ana…/jr_anatomy_curriculum.html

If you’ve purchased this curriculum in the past year, check your email for instructions on how to get the newest version for free! The online schedule has also been updated and is accessible to ALL past purchasers.

Our anatomy curriculum has loads of great books, fun activities, fascinating videos and even online games and free printables scheduled in. It’s meaty enough to be a “core” curriculum (a.k.a. unit type study) and is perfect for science-loving children with plenty of practical information and a variety of materials to appeal to different learning styles.

Topics for this curriculum:

●All about the human body
●Stories about real people & scientists
●Nutrition
●Germs and diseases
●Saying no to alcohol and smoking
●Keeping safe from inappropriate touch
●Puberty (optional – with separate books for boys and girls)
●Survival and what to do in emergencies

Our anatomy curriculum has 3 different levels that follow the same topics, so you can teach a multitude of ages from pre-K through high school!

I’ve really enjoyed seeing students working on Jr. Anatomy projects via customer’s blogs. You can see a bunch of posts that’s show a bright young lady using Guest Hollow’s Jr. Anatomy at http://learningathomewithme.blogspot.com!

If you have a blog that shows a student using our materials, we’d love to share! Feel free to post the url below in the comments.

Happy homeschooling!

Little Otter’s Anatomy Curriculum is finished!

I just finished level 1 of my 3 level anatomy curriculum: Little Otter’s Anatomy Curriculum.

This is a gentle, literature approach to science with simple experiments and activities.

This curriculum is designed for preschool through about 2nd grade or for older children with special needs who would benefit from books that are more “gentle” and are scheduled at a slower pace. You can also substitute some of the books for a younger student who is using Guest Hollow’s Jr. Anatomy Curriculum. Just choose from the two programs to get the best fit.

Topics for this curriculum:

  • All about the human body
  • How some animal parts are different than human parts
  • Teeth
  • Nutrition & Food
  • Germs and Getting Sick
  • Going to the Doctor
  • Sleep
  • Where babies come from (age appropriate)
  • Smoking is bad for you
  • Keeping safe from inappropriate touch
  • Safety
  • Stories & videos about famous people and animals, like Fanny Crosby, Louis Pasteur, Helen Keller, Buddy – the first seeing eye dog, and Balto who delivered medicine to children in Alaska

I’ve scheduled in a variety of fascinating books and resources to make this human body curriculum informative, interesting and fun! I’ve also included several items to enhance this year’s studies that incorporate art and imaginative play.

I’m getting ready to work on updating /revamping the next curriculum. It’s been a lot of work converting my site over to a business (instead of a hobby), but well worth the effort. Thanks to all of you who are helping make Guest Hollow a success!

K-2 Anatomy Curriculum Sneak Peek

I’m almost finished with the 3rd level of Guest Hollow’s Anatomy Curriculum for Kindergarten through 2nd grade! I will probably post it sometime next week! Little Otter’s Anatomy Curriculum is also appropriate for a preschooler who wants to start homeschooling.

Little Otter’s Anatomy Curriculum is a gentle study of the human body with anatomy and health topics that line up with the Guest Hollow Jr. Anatomy Curriculum and the High School Anatomy Curriculum. Now you can teach multiple ages the same topic, and everyone can get in on the fun at their own level! You can mix and match books between the three levels to customize the curriculum for your learner(s). It’s easy to plug books from a different level into each schedule, as they are listed by week on the book & resource pages.

I’ve scheduled in lots of great books that are perfect for a young child’s home library into this curriculum, as well as plenty of fun, age-appropriate hands-on activities to make learning stick.

You can get a sneak peek by looking at the scheduled books & resources. Just click on the image below!

Human body books

Our new Jr. Anatomy Curriculum is finished!

Our new anatomy curriculum has loads of great books, fun activities, fascinating videos and even online games and free printables scheduled in. It’s meaty enough to be a “core” curriculum (if desired) and perfect for science-loving children with plenty of practical information and a variety of materials to appeal to different learning styles. We even have a high school anatomy curriculum that follows the topics in the same order, so you can make life easier teaching multiple ages the same subject at different levels!

Topics for this curriculum:

  • All about the human body
  • Stories about real people & scientists
  • Nutrition
  • Germs and diseases
  • Saying no to alcohol and smoking
  • Keeping safe from inappropriate touch
  • Puberty (optional – with separate books for boys and girls)
  • Survival and what to do in emergencies

I’ve scheduled in a variety of fascinating books and resources to make this human body curriculum informative, interesting and fun! I’ve also included some books that are add-ons for advanced or middle school students.

Otter has requested to use it starting this fall, and I’m really looking forward to it. There are lots of interesting books I think he’s really going to enjoy learning from.

High School Anatomy Curriculum Preview!

I’m really close to finishing my brand-new high school anatomy curriculum! Click here for a preview of some of the books and other resources for the year! I still may add in a couple literature selections. 😉 There are also lots of goodies in the actual schedule that are not listed in the resources to purchase – like free videos, printables, interactive games online and more.

Guest Hollow’s High School Anatomy curriculum is going to be a great year full of fascinating books, hands-on labs & activities, videos and more. This anatomy curriculum goes way beyond a textbook and makes learning about the human body something that is not just informational, but entertaining, and even inspiring. Your students will not only learn about how the body works- they will read captivating and true stories of what happens when the human body isn’t working right. I’ve also included books with potentially life-changing and very practical information. This is knowledge your students can carry with them for a lifetime and not just forget as soon as they’ve moved on to something else.

Tired of history cores? Read most of the literature and nonfiction books I’m including and you’ve got yourself a SCIENCE core. Want to pare things down? Guest Hollow’s High School Anatomy is flexible. There will be a printable schedule you can adjust and change as much as you’d like. You can even swap out resources to take advantage of what’s available in your local library or home book shelves.

For those of you with younger students, this curriculum tracks right along with the brand-new Guest Hollow’s Jr. Anatomy curriculum (also coming out soon), as well as the current Otter’s Anatomy schedule, so that your kids of ALL ages can learn together.

I’ll be posting an update soon!

Science Update

Just a quick science update for those of you who subscribe to my blog for that purpose…I will be creating the next set of biology workbook pages next week. We are getting over a cold so I didn’t get to them yet! Hopefully I’ll have them finished before too long!

Also, I’ve started the early planning stages for next year’s science. After consulting with Otter, he will be studying human anatomy & physiology during the 2014-2015 school year.  I will be creating a NEW curriculum and sharing it here!

Happy homeschooling!
