Human Body Lapbook

I was pulling together resources for our color lapbook this weekend and realized that I had never shared our Human Body Lapbook here. Miss O and Little Bean each did a human body lapbook, with Miss O's being a little more simplified for her age. Sometimes I combine them, but I had a ton of mini books, so we decided to do two. For our color lapbook, we will combine both of their parts into one book. By the way, I am totally excited about the color lapbook! Thank you to those who left links for me to look at--I checked them all out and did pull some stuff from there. But there were several things I could not find pre-made, so I spent Saturday trying my hand at making my own mini books, and I have to say, I am delighted with the results and can't wait to get started on this one with the kiddos! Anyway, on to the human body! I pulled all my resources for this lapbook from here. We searched our local library for books on the human body too. Unfortunately I didn't save the titles for what we used, but the lapbook pieces can be used with any books on the human body.

Here is the cover of Miss O's lapbook:
And this is the inside of Little Bean's lapbook. We have: a mini book about eye color, important body parts, a diagram of the skeleton, a mini book about how to stay healthy, and a book about the different parts of the body (skin, muscles, bones, and organs).
The skeleton page turns so that we have more room. On this page we have a book about germs and what makes people sick, a diagram of internal organs (Little Bean hasn't finished this one yet), steps to brushing your teeth, body part riddles, and a food groups chart.

What a great lapbook and a wonderful topic. We did a human body lapbook in 1st or 2nd grade. Now in 6th grade, we're revisiting anatomy at a more indepth look. It will be fun to pull out our old lapbook and laugh.
