Did you know that your brain has up to 100 billion nerve cells? Wow! What else is going on in your body? In The Human Body: Get Under the Skin with Science Activities for Kids, middle schoolers learn about the different bodily systems that keep people breathing, moving, thinking, and staying healthy! Kids get a good look at all the action that's going on right inside their own bodies, from understanding just how that apple turns into energy to how the'leftovers'make their exit. By studying the circulatory system, the digestive system, muscles, bones, the brain, senses, reproduction system, and more, kids gain a deep understanding of why they can do the things they do and even learn about what they can do to take care of their bodies so they live long and healthy lives. Through science-minded STEM activities, readers see exactly how smoke affects the lungs, how the heart really acts as a liquid pump, and how the different joints are structured and serve different purposes. The Human Body includes critical thinking exercises and essential questions related to anatomy. Fun facts, links to online primary sources and other supplemental material, plus graphic novel illustrations and photography encourage readers to take a deep dive under their skin!
