We completed the study on "Our Body" for this year. Since we already covered the parts of the body and the main organs and their jobs it was mostly revision.
This is the first time she learnt about Skeleton and Bones. We used this lovely book from the Children's Library and learnt the system while remembering the perfect creation of Allaah.
At the QMuslimah Children's Library kids are encouraged to write a Qur'aanic Aayah or a Hadeeth related to each book and paste that as a reminder on the book. This particular book had this aayah written and done by a child who had borrowed the book!
We learnt the bones, joints, the main jobs of a skeleton and basic muscles.
Then she did some worksheets that could be downloaded from here
We also learnt about the inside of the bone and marked them.
To sum up I gave her to fill in the activities on the Junior Science Book 1
Once again we revised all about Food Pyramids, Food Groups and Nutrients. And all about a healthy and balanced diet.
Then she answered some questions.
I told her to present to me a Healthy Food Pyramid and a Unhealthy Food Pyramid. She used toothpicks, painted them and came up with this.
The Library had this book and we learnt about why we sneeze, Shiver, Hiccup and Yawn.
We also remembered the hadeeth about yawning and the etiquettes in Islaam with regard to sneezing and replying the one who sneezes.
