These human anatomy resources for homeschool science include books, hands-on projects, curriculum, and more.
Starting at a young age my youngest child in particular was obsessed with the human body and how her body worked. Since she was very much a hands-on learner I searched for and provided her lots of hands-on activities to help her explore the human body. Human anatomy is something your children can explore at any age with the right resources.
