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.
This activity is just ONE of the TEN hands-on learning activities found inside The Human Body Family Unit Study (Now Available HERE)!
Each unit study is intended for Homeschooling Families to use together! Each activity offers modifications making it appropriate for children aged 4 – 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 all together.
Each Unit Study includes:
- Carefully curated YouTube videos
- A book list of suggested library books
- Interesting facts
- Discussion questions
- Math word problems
- Literacy/writing/letter activities
- 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 inside our Human Body Unit Study.
These printable human body playdough mats include:
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 either 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 the spinal cord.
Each of these 6 major body systems are available in two forms. The first form shows children exactly where the body system is located on the human body, allowing children to press playdough directly on top of the printable. The second option shows children a small picture of the body system in the corner and a large blank human body in the middle, allowing children to create the body systems on their own.
This is how every activity in my unit studies are set up—one simple activity that has a simple modification or two making it ideal for the whole family to learn.
I hope you absolutely love this printable! You can grab your Printable Human Body Playdough Mats below. And don’t forget to check out all of the Unit Studies available here!
