“Human Anatomy for Kids is a very detailed book with helpful illustrations that make it fun and easy for kids to learn basic human anatomy down to the cellular level.” ―Kolten Kline, master of science in occupational therapy student
“Human Anatomy for Kids is the perfect guide for your child's first steps into the world of anatomy and physiology. Kristie Wagner, with 12 years of work in her field of science, has masterfully navigated the subject with wonderful graphics to engage the mind; exceptional experiments for fun hands-on activities; and absolutely terrific, easy-to-digest facts to keep any child hungry for learning. This book does a splendid job of compacting a topic with immense depth into something so manageable for the beginning mind” ―Evan Wiseman, registered diagnostic medical sonographer
“I’ve been teaching anatomy and physiology at the college level for more than a decade. Kristie’s book can build a great foundation for kids and build interest in learning more about the human body.

Here's things you can expect to find:
- It's easily adaptable to any middle or elementary aged student. Even older preK students could do a lot of this without boring the middle schoolers.
- There are 7 lessons. Each one could be done in a 1-2 hour class a week.
1- Human Body... homeostasis, cells, organs, tissues, dna, etc
2- Body's Defense System... pathogens, skin, hair, freckles, nails, immunity, lymphocytes, etc
3- How Your Body Moves... joints, types of bones, types of muscles, etc
4- Making Sense... nervous system, brain, eyes, ears, nose (boogers), mouth, glands, etc
5- Breathing to the Beat... heart, blood, breathing, lungs, pulse, blood types, etc
6- Let's Eat... digestion, stomach, food poisoning, liver & friends, intestines, urine, gas, etc.
7- Grow Up... reproduction, genes, male & female reproductive organs, puberty, menstruation, etc. Note - sex is not discussed, but it does mention that when a female sex cell and a male sex cell come together, fertilization happens.
After the first four sections, there's a science experiment with fairly easy to come by supplies. There are no experiments or hands on activities for the later 3 sections.
Vocabulary words are highlighted in a bold font and range from easy-slightly more advanced. There is a glossary at the back
Things I wish this included:
- more experiments, or models to make for each section. At least one for each section.
- Writing prompts for both younger and older kids. It'd be pretty easy to have kids chew a piece of candy and write about it's journey, or write what their favorite organ is and why. Maybe that's just the teacher in me though. Writing helps us process and retain information we learned through auditory and hands on methods.
Overall, it'd make a good curriculum book base if you're looking for something to teach at your coop for a semester. You'll want to add a little more from pinterest but this is the core you need for a 6-10 week class, an hour a week. I'd say it's best for upper elementary but could be modified easily for younger elementary or middle school.
