Welcome to another wonderful Science Saturday where The Homeschool Scientist and I are working through Apologia Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology.
My children love listening to heartbeats. Lira actually received a stethoscope for her birthday. So, this unit on the cardiovascular system was such a perfect fit for our family.
My fav-o-rite video about the cardiovascular system… I really liked it. This one is so thorough and interactive. But Lira was upset and confused when he kept scribbling through half of the diagrams. (Thank you, Autism.)
So, we turned to a simple video.
The list for resources on the cardiovascular system is extensive. Check this out:
