    Required for Apologia’s 2nd edition Human Body course, this anatomy coloring book provides an innovative way to reinforce human anatomy for any study of the human body. Although designed for high school, middle school students may also benefit from this one. Each spread offers a clear and precise illustration with concise textual information as well as space for labeling the illustration. Topics included are anatomical position and terms, planes of the body, cells/tissues, skeletal system, joints, nervous system, sense organs, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, male and female reproductive systems and fetal development. A neat feature about this coloring book is the inclusion of 96 tear-out muscle flashcards for memorization. On the flip side, a drawback is that the publisher elected to place the answers to the diagrams at the bottom of the same page - although my children may be the only ones who would be tempted to take the easy way out when labeling the diagrams! I would consider covering up the answers to encourage them to research the correct answers. 335 pages plus flashcards, pb. ~ Deanne

     The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success.  Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

    When you're homeschooling it makes sense to study nutrition as a family, right? After all, you probably are all preparing and eating the same meals, and meal planning and shopping may even be cooperative efforts (if not, Mom is probably overworked!). Nutrition 101: Choose Life! was written for homeschooling families by a team of four moms (including two homeschool moms) to educate families about the relationship between our bodies and the food we eat. It's a unique book in that it is part textbook, part reference, and part cookbook. It's also a beautiful book, with glossy, full-color pages and good quality illustrations and photos. Finally, it's also biblically-based with plentiful Scripture references (KJV version) and a constant reminder that we are charged with maintaining the incredible body systems that God endowed us with. The course is divided into six main units, covering the major body systems: the brain and nervous system; digestive system; respiratory system and the senses; muscular and skeletal systems; cardiovascular and immune system; and the endocrine system and emotions. Units are further

    divided into four chapters, each designed to be completed in about a week. The authors provide a suggested daily schedule; however, you can easily adapt this to fit your needs. Each body system studied ties into a study of a particular nutrient or nutrients that you are encouraged to work into your diet, and to this end, quite a few healthy, whole-food recipes are included. The end of the book is also literally packed with a huge assortment of appendices (including lots of helpful charts!) and a thorough answer key for the activities. Each chapter includes text for reading, discussion questions, activity suggestions for elementary and secondary students, additional resources for further exploration, a "power recipe" and related activities. Typically, you'll first read about a body system, learn its function and all of the major parts, then continue on to learn about common health issues related to that body system and their causes. This is usually followed up by a closer look at a particular nutrient or group of nutrients that is beneficial to that particular body system.

    The "Power Recipe" (and associated list of activities) for each chapter is usually related to one of the featured beneficial nutrients. For instance, Unit 3, Chapter 4 is on the eyes. The first part of the chapter examines the parts of the eye and how the eye works. Then you'll read about eye sight issues including pink eye, sties, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and age-related macular degeneration. Next you examine nutrients that help maintain eye health including antioxidants, beta-carotene (to be converted to Vitamin A), lycopene, anthocyanosides, DHA, lutein, zeaxanthin and others. Several foods that have an adverse effect on eyesight, including trans fatty acids and processed foods are also discussed here. Discussion questions include how to protect your eyes, what foods are bad for your eyes, and applying what you've read about the eye to a particular Scripture. The activities are hands on and include spending time blindfolded (elementary level), finding a percentage of family members that wear glasses or contact lenses (elementary), explaining the difference between an ophthalmologist and optometrist (secondary) and discussion other meanings of vision (secondary). The "Power Recipe" focuses on carrots as an ingredient for a fresh carrot juice smoothie, and several carrot and juicing activity suggestions round out the recipe activities.

    The format of this course makes it extremely easy to use as a family. You can assign everyone to read (or read aloud) the text, and then get back together for the discussion questions. Discussion questions tend to be fairly easy if you've read or heard the chapter, so everyone would be able to participate here, maybe even over dinner! Depending on the ages of your students and the time allotted, you will probably want to pick and choose activities to assign. The featured "Power Recipe" would be easy to incorporate into a meal and the related activities may naturally fit into meal preparation.

    While this course is packed with excellent information, recipes and activities, there are a few items I should note. First of all, for all of the anatomical information and vocabulary covered, there are no tests or worksheets to reinforce the reading. The focus of the course is really to educate families and encourage them to change their eating habits, not provide easily graded assessments! However, this would be fairly easy to supplement if desired. The recipes and foods you are encouraged to try are healthy whole foods with low to no sugar, whole grains and possibly some ingredients you haven't met before. If you've never explored your local health food store, you'll find quite a few reasons to visit it now! You'll also find that there are some pretty strong opinions presented here, for example, when discussing toxins found in household cleaners and personal care products, or when examining specific nutrients or supplements-including extensive recommendations for Young Living Essential Oils. You will likely come across something here that you may disagree with, based on your own beliefs, or at least something that will make you stop and think (or perhaps do some further research on). Lastly, I did notice a couple of typos in perusing this resource, which was disappointing in such an otherwise appealing book. Whether you are looking for a nutrition course or trying to educate yourself or your family on why you should eat healthier foods, this is definitely a resource to consider. It's one that you'll want to leave on the shelf long after you've "finished" the course, as you'll be referring to it again and again! 448 pgs, pb. Jess/Deanne

    This set includes seven charts portraying the anatomy of the human body: digestive system, muscular system, cardiovascular system, skeletal system, respiratory system, nervous system, and the reproductive, endocrine, and excretory systems. Each 17" x 22" visual features realistic illustrations of the human body carefully labeled. As an extra bonus, there are three reproducible worksheets on the back of each poster to help teach children about each system. One is a worksheet for identifying the different parts of the system, one is a fun facts sheet, and the last is a hands-on activity for children to try. These are wonderful references or visual aids for the study of human anatomy. – elise

    More than just posters, these are interactive learning resources to use with your health/anatomy studies. The set includes four body system posters (13 ¾"x 24"), 80 labels (2 ½"x 1"), and a resource guide. Each poster shows a diagram with blank labeling spaces. The student then places the correctly titled label in the appropriate blank space – there are 20 labels per poster. The four posters show the skeletal system, respiratory and circulatory systems, digestive system, and the human body. This last one shows major organs of the body. Labels are color-coded to each poster, so there will be no confusion about which the labels should match, and there are even a few blank ones so you can add your own or replace any that might get lost. There is no way to attach the labels to the posters, so you will want to attach hook and loop dots, reusable mounts, or double-sided tape to the labels/poster for easier practice. The resource guide shows correct labeling of each poster along with suggestions for use and an explanation of each system. Students can practice over and over or just hang them up with the answers as a visual reminder during your study. ~ Donna

    Having a background in the medical field, I found myself perusing this book with an eye focused on details - How accurate is the information? How easily would it be understood by the average reader especially in the sections detailing common disorders? How straightforward is it to navigate as a learning resource? All I can say is WOW! This book does indeed exceed all expectations. The Human Body beautifully illustrates the internal human body through the use of 3D computer images, computed tomography (CT scan) images, microscopic image photography, PET scan images and color illustrations.

    It is organized into thirteen chapters which include the integrated body; skeletal system; muscular system; nervous system; endocrine system; cardiovascular system; respiratory system; skin, hair and nails; lymph and immunity; digestive system; urinary system; reproduction and birth; and growth and development. Each chapter is further structured into the anatomy, the physiology, and a discussion of common disorders for each body system. These are well organized and use the correct terminology explained accurately and clearly. The back of the book also contains a ten-page glossary of terms to further explain the terms or for quick reference. The authors have given a great depth of information in an easy to understand manner, and because of this I feel this book would be a valuable asset to anyone with an interest in learning more about our human body, how it functions and the disorders that affect mankind.

    If the contents of this book are not enough to whet your interest, it also contains an interactive DVD-ROM (computer) to enhance learning. What makes this DVD-ROM interactive? First, each of the body systems is illustrated, and a simple scroll over with your computer mouse will give the name of the structure or organ examined. Also included are video clips of the body in action; for example, the heart beating is shown complete with the pumping action and the electrical impulses as it prepares to deliver blood flow. The only negative I noticed with the DVD-ROM is that it is all graphics and no voice to explain what you are viewing. However the text does explain the material and the appropriate pages will direct you to the DVD-ROM for enhanced learning. The DVD-ROM is compatible with Windows XP (service pack 2)/Vista/7; Mac OS X v.10.4. H/c, oversized (10.5x12), 288 richly illustrated pages. Please note: Dorling Kindersly is not a Christian publisher, and there are (naturally) images of male and female body systems, a video clip on conception, and a discussion of sexually transmitted infections. Overall, this is done tastefully with a focus on the structure and function of the human body. ~ Deanne

    Don't just learn the pieces of a human body - put one together for yourself! This high-quality floor puzzle contains 100 pieces, and when completed, is 4' tall. It's double-sided, with the skeletal system portrayed on one side and the major organs and blood vessels portrayed on the other, in bright, eye-catching colors. Major bones and structures are labeled with a number and identified at the bottom of the puzzle. The pieces are made of heavy-duty cardboard, which the manufacturer claims is 20% thicker than that of other puzzles, and have an easy-to-clean surface, which is always a plus to something lying on the floor of a busy household!

    I think "adventure" was a good choice of words to include in this whirlwind tour of the human body! This full-color, lively guide takes readers system by system through the human body, incorporating diagrams, detailed anatomy illustrations, facts, physical activities, and pencil-and-paper activities. Nine chapters cover the skeletal system, muscular system, nervous system, circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system, eyes, ears, taste and smell. Each section is several pages long, and moves from the general to the more specific in content, and wraps up with activities. In the skeletal system section, readers can examine a fully labeled skeleton, with common and anatomical names for the bones and bone groups, and read facts about our bones. The next page zeroes in on the spine, shows how the spinal bones are put together, and shows how bones support our body and protect it. The last page on bones discusses bone growth, and shows the different parts of a bone using a detailed bone diagram and a blown-up cross-section of bone. The activities for the bone section include a word puzzle using bone terminology, a match between common and scientific bone names, a word problem that asks students to try to figure out how tall they may get, and a list of places on your body you can touch to feel the different bones and joints that are hidden underneath. Although the pages are pretty busy, the book quality is excellent, and the detailed anatomy drawings are terrific. I also like that the activities and "side-bars" apply anatomy topics to kids, so they can "experience" for themselves, and think about anatomy in terms of their bodies, not just from a drawing in a book! - Jess

    As part of my college studies, I took two anatomy and physiology classes. Anatomy and physiology are very closely linked because anatomy (the structure of any given part) shows what the physiology (function or movement) will be. Studying anatomy and physiology, I have often been fascinated by the design of our bodies. This hefty book provides a very thorough and easy-to-understand approach to understanding complex systems. Chapters cover a general introduction to anatomy and physiology, chemical basis, cells and cell physiology, tissues, the integumentary system, bones and joints, the skeletal system, muscle physiology, muscles, the nervous system, the special senses, the endocrine system, blood, the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic and immune systems, the respiratory system, the digestive system, metabolism and nutrition, the urinary system, fluid, electrolyte, and acid/base balance, and the reproductive systems. Very complete, with questions and quizzes at the end of every chapter to test your understanding. ~ Megan
