The House You Live In

This classic text is a great introduction to human anatomy (”the house you live in”), originally prepared back in 1904 for use in primary grades in New York schools. I really like the engaging way the lessons are given. The teacher very simply reviews the subject of the lesson (such as the heart, bones, muscles, etc.), then asks the students simple discussion questions that help them understand how the body works.

Included are both the questions for your students and the answers you want them to grasp, so it is easy to lead discussion in the direction you want it to go. No advance preparation is needed by the teacher.

We thing it would be a great idea to use this with  an anatomy coloring book or some more recent color illustrations. These Q&A lessons are so extremely well done, we think you’ll really, really enjoy using this lesson guide with your younger children (Grades 1-3).
