Before learning about basic needs, children attempted to complete a mind map, adding to this later. Living / Not Living / Never Lived sorting activity / workstation task What do you call a baby… table to complete 5 day food journal - table for students to complete (Monday to Friday) Egg or Mum?

KS1/2/3: Food Diary

I was looking online for a booklet-style food diary that looked good, and alas I could not find one! So I spent a couple of minutes putting this together before school this morning. Graphics are by GraphicsPassion, and the font can be downloaded here: https://www.dafont.com/sea-balance.font? I collected the graphics onto the back page so you can play around with them as images if needed. The days can also be reordered to fit your timetable. Hope it’s helpful!

Full-Sized Coloring Anatomy Activity

Full-Sized Coloring Anatomy Activity

This all -year anatomy activity is for students of any age, but is mainly geared toward younger elementary students to learn the placement of the major organs and bones in their bodies. INSTRUCTIONS: To use this book, begin by tracing your child’s body on a large piece of paper in anatomical position, that is, with palms facing up. This becomes important in the correct placement of the lower arm bones. We found that newsprint is much too weak to last the entire school year, so opt for a thicker roll of craft paper which can be found at an office supply, school supply, or paper supply store. Then, cut it out and attach it to the wall. As you study each system, find the corresponding body parts, color (if desired), and have your child attach them with glue stick, double sticky tape, or rolled tape.
