We love adding lapbook projects to our homeschool studies so we were really excited to receive the ExploringCreation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Lapbook from A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks and look forward to using more of their Apologia Exploring Creation Lapbooks.
The term “lapbook” was first coined by Tammy Duby, a homeschool mother and writer from Virginia, USA. She named it that because the whole project could fit into a “book” that fits in the child’s lap. A lapbook is a single-subject book created by a student, generally as a supplement to a curriculum. A lapbook consists of file folders with mini-booklets glued inside. Lapbooks can be used for any subject and any grade level. I use lapbooks with my students to enhance creativity and critical thinking while integrating subjects such as Bible, language arts, science, history, geography, and mathematics, depending on the subject of the lapbook.
To create the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Lapbook, you will need the following materials: a printed copy of the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology Lapbook digital download by A Journey Through Learning, the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology textbook by Apologia Educational Ministries, fourteen file folders, scissors, glue, stapler, brads, and colored pencils.
This lapbook is designed to be completed with the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology textbook. There are fourteen lessons in the textbook. Students will create one lapbook per lesson, making it a total of fourteen file folders to complete this lapbook. Gather your file folders and fold them so that they will be ready to use as you get to each lesson.
This lapbook includes directions for folding the file folders, directions for constructing each mini-booklet, pages to read from the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology textbook, and what your student will record in the mini-booklet after reading to show what is learned. A small key is provided to show you where to glue each mini-booklet into the file folders. This lapbook also includes an answer key, additional reading suggestions for each lesson, and enrichment pages.
Throughout this course, students will take a voyage through the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, circulatory, immune, and nervous systems. They will study nutrition, health, and embryology to see what makes each of us a unique creation of God. Psalm 139:14 reads “I will praise thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” From head to toe, this course is a personal encounter with God’s design for the human body.
This lapbook has been a great supplement to the Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology textbook! My sixth grader loves hands-on learning and this lapbook has expanded her knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. We have created several lapbooks throughout our homeschool years, and I must say, A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks has done an exceptional job in creating each mini-booklet for this course.
