Homeschool Human Anatomy Unit Study: Blood

A study of the human body is fascinating for all ages. Who’s not curious about the amazing, mysterious workings on the inside of ourselves? In our homeschool this year we are studying human anatomy in a unit study type format. Our primary homeschool “curriculum” is from Guest Hollow (check it out here and here) but I can’t leave well enough alone and am always looking for extras to supplement what we do. This week I’m focusing on our study of the blood.

I’ll start by saying that we really don’t need to add to our primary curriculum, as it is already rich and full of exciting content. However, since I am combining the junior and high school levels for my students, I wanted to find some more things that would be enjoyable for both of my kiddos at the same time. That’s the beauty of homeschooling, right? We can combine ages and don’t have to compartmentalize each student in their own age-level box.
