Why not use the month of February to do a unit study about the human heart? Visit The Human Cardiovascular System to access a set of links for a complete unit study on the human cardiovascular system. These K-12 links will lead you to articles, hands-on activities and other exercises that are compatible with the Montessori classified science reading cards, creative writing and other extensive lesson plans found in the Montessori at Home, Modern Montessori at Home and Modern Montessori at Home II books.
Here is a sampling of what you will find:
Diagrams of the Heart for Classified Reading Card Activities
Links to Lessons Involving Heart Structure and Function
Let’s Read, Write and Talk About the Human Heart
