Get ready for an unforgettable learning adventure into the world of the human body with this two-study set that includes both Discover the Brain and Discover the Senses unit studies. There will be science discoveries, such as learning about the way that nerve signals are transmitted at speeds of over 150 miles per hour, and neurons communicate without ever touching. Discovering how important it is to exercise and eat right to help your brain, as well as how the left side of a brain controls the right side of your body, and that there are over 100 billion neurons in a human brain–these things are always fascinating and memorable. Take some time to explore with them–take plenty of pictures, explore the learning links and look and see what God has created!
Discover the Brain and Discover the Senses are both part of the Discover the Body collection in the Download N Go series for grades K – 4. Covering science, history, geography, and much more, this new series of discovery is sure to be a hit!
Here’s one parent’s review of Discover the Senses:
” . . . Sadly, there isn’t much “fun” material out there to teach our homeschoolers about the five senses. Well that is now a thing of the past. You can get out the old fashioned books that mundanely show our children what each of the five senses are or you can get Amanda Bennett’s new unit study, and feel, touch, taste, and hear your way through a exciting learning experience. You will teach your little ones how all five senses are used in all of the tasks we do each day. How can I have the sense of touch be tangible in the eyes of my child? I have often shied away from the very simple science of the senses because we inherently know that they can see, feel, touch, taste and hear. Amanda Bennett takes learning the senses to a five-sense joyful overload that will have your children jumping at the opportunity to tell you what sense they used during their everyday tasks! This unit study also caters to the wide range of learning types I have in my household. Amanda’s “hands on” approach helps my kinetic/tactile learner by focusing on her sense of touch. The video links that are provided help my sight learners use their sense of sight. Additionally, Amanda is amazing at asking questions that get my children to really grasp the things we have looked at and learned during the day’s lesson. My favorite section of this unit study is called “Overcoming Challenges.” This section shows my children people who are lacking one or more of the senses, and how they have still lived full lives! The study of these amazing individuals, such as Helen Keller, brings such hope and courage to my children. I have to admit these amazing people inspired and encouraged me as well! I know this unit study has inspired my children and taught them to cherish the five senses that God has given them.
