Usborne makes beautiful books for young children. This is my STEM-lover’s favorite book about the human body!
Preschoolers and primary grade students need hands-on opportunities to learn more about the body. A magnetic set or puzzle will be perfect for child-led learning!
Rachel and the Treeschoolers is the best early science program for toddlers and preschoolers. This human body episode incorporates music, sign language, and lots of learning!
This fun matching puzzle brings in a literacy component to an anatomy unit study, with a self-checking component to increase confidence and independence.
