The House You Live In (PDF ebook) — This classic “living textbook” is a great introduction to human anatomy (“the house you live in”), originally prepared back in 1904 for use in primary grades in New York schools. The short lessons are wonderfully engaging: The teacher very simply reviews the subject of the lesson (such as the heart, bones, muscles, etc.), then asks the students simple discussion questions that help them understand how the body works. Included are both the questions for your students and the answers you want them to grasp, so it is easy to lead discussion in the direction you want it to go.
Requires no advance preparation by the teacher, although using this with an anatomy coloring book would be ideal — so that is exactly what we will be bringing you tomorrow! These Charlotte Mason-style Q&A lessons are extremely well done. We think you’ll really, really enjoy using this lesson guide with your younger children (Grades 1-3).
