We have been posting some amazing free resources for learning about the human body. If you are learning about the human body this year, or are planning to study it next year, we have got you covered! There are lots of different systems that make up the human body. This week we will be covering the muscular system. The muscular system is so important because it provides the motor power movement for all of the body parts.
Your children will enjoy learning about how important our muscles are, how they move, and how they help all of our body parts to move and function. Without muscles we could do nothing! I have gathered up lots of worksheets that cover the study of the muscular system. These will be great to use if you are doing separate unit studies on the human body, or just learning about the muscular system on its own.
FREE Muscular System Worksheets:
Labeling and Diagramming is a great way for your children to memorize the different parts of the muscular system. We have created the Human Body Systems Labeling and Diagramming Worksheet as an instant download for your sutdents! This includes fill-in-the-blanks for your student to label some of the main muscles that are in the body.
We love using notebooking in our homeschool and it works very well when you are doing unit studies and delight directed learning. We created another awesome freebie for you to go along with the study of the muscular system. The FREE Muscular System Diseases Notebooking Research Journal is an instant download. This research journal will help your children to learn about the different diseases that can effect the muscular system such as: palsy, fibromyalgia, muscle strain, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, tetanus, and a torn rotator cuff.
