These human body printable playdough mats turned out so wonderfully! I am so excited to share them with you. These printables are FREE for you to print and use with your little ones! You can print them off and have your children draw the different major human body systems, or you can cover them in contact paper (or laminate) and use them as playdough mats.
The Human Body Family Unit Study
This activity is just ONE of the TEN hands-on learning activities from The Human Body Family Unit Study.
Each unit study is intended for homeschooling families to use together! The activities offer modifications, making it appropriate for children aged 4 to 12 years old. They are exactly what I needed for my family, so I thought they might be ideal for other homeschooling families as well. You can now SIMPLIFY and enjoy your time together.
Each Family Unit Study includes:
- Carefully curated YouTube videos
- A list of suggested library books
- Interesting facts
- Discussion questions
- Math and literacy enrichment questions
- And 10 hands-on learning activities (just like this one!)
Today, I wanted to share one of the hands-on learning activities that can be found in my Human Body Unit Study.
Printable Playdough Mats
These printable human body playdough mats include the six major human body systems:
The Digestive System: With this printable, children will be encouraged to make the stomach, large and small intestines, and the esophagus with playdough using the model.
The Respiratory System: For this printable, children will be able to learn all about the lungs and the trachea.
The Muscular System: This printable looks so neat! It displays all of the muscles in the human body and allows children to recreate the muscular system or put playdough directly overtop of a model of the muscular system.
The Skeletal System: This printable human skeleton is perfect for children who are beginning to learn about human bones. It does not include all 206 human bones, however, it would be a wonderful way to encourage older children to research which bones are missing! The printable does include many of the major bones found within the human body.
The Circulatory System: Set up as a printable with red and blue lines, this circulatory system helps children to see how the heart pumps blood through our bodies. This printable focuses on the heart, veins, arteries, and capillaries.
The Nervous System: Children will learn all about the nervous system as they use playdough to recreate the brain, nerves, and spinal cord.
Simply print the playdough mats, pop them in a page protector, and have your little ones create the body systems as you learn all about each one!
