We are studying the human body this year using Sassafras Science Human Anatomy Volume 2, which is a living book science curriculum that uses notebooking. You know how much we love to incorporate notebooking into our homeschool.
We also use the McCall Crabbs reading comprehension books that have a short reading selection and questions to help children work on their comprehension skills. I was thinking how wonderful it would be to have information as the reading comprehension selections pertaining to what we are studying in our science lessons.
We created this human body systems reading comprehension pack to supplement our study of human anatomy.
There are six reading comprehension lessons in this unit, all based on human body systems.
Learn about the human body systems:
- circulatory system
- respiratory system
- digestive system
- muscular system
- skeletal system
- nervous system
Each lesson will have short, informative text followed by comprehension questions based on what was read. It is suggested that a parent/teacher read the selection and ask the questions orally, answers can be given orally or written on notebook paper.
You can also use this unit as a guide for a notebooking journal. The student can read the lesson text (or a parent/teacher can read it aloud) and use a notebooking page for written narration using the questions as writing prompts. This often works better for students who struggle with reading comprehension questions. Suggested vocabulary words are bolded. You can have your student look up the definitions to add to their science notebook.
The Human Body Systems Reading Comprehension Science Unit is intended to be a supplement to your study of the human body and geared for grades 4-8. You will find answer keys in the index for each lesson. Scroll down to get it for free.
