Human Body Project

We love making learning fun with hands on educational activities that are as memorable and fun as they are good for teaching kids about science. This epic human body project allows students to learn and review the bones of the body, what the major organs are and where they are located, plus have some fun looking under their skin. This science lesson is fun and adaptable for children from preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6, and grade 7 students.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – this fun science project is perfect! Use it for a human anatomy or my body unit in your classroom, as a fun cooperative science activity, to learn more about anatomy for kids, or in any other supplement to your science lesson.

Human Body for Kids

The human body is an amazing thing that kids will be fascinated to learn about. Did you know:

  • Heart beats 100,000 times a day!
  • Color of your skin is determined by the level of pigment melanin your body makes
  • Most adults have 32 teeth
  • Smallest bone in the body is in the middle ear
  • Your nose and ears keep growing your whole life!
  • Everyone has not only a unique fingerprint, but a unique tongue print too!
  • It takes about 12 hours to completely digest food you eat!
  • Infants have 270 bones at birth and only 206 bones as an adult

Kids will love leaning about what is inside their body by making a replica of themselves and taking a peak at the bones and organs inside.

Next in this human body activities for 2nd grade, put the skeletal system together so your child can see what is under their skin – bones!

  • Print the free template below (the template is the perfect size for most kids 8-12 years old, for kids 4-7 just print at 85% size under print options)
  • Cut out the bones in the printable
  • Glue bones on the cut-out.

kids will have fun practicing labeling the bones in the body with this fun science project for kids

To help my kids learn the name of the bones, I had them write the names of the bones on their body. For younger students you don’t need to learn all the names. You may just learn a few or none, but the visual is amazing. Have them press on their arm and ask if they can feel the hard bone under their skin that is holding their body together.
We used this free printable Skeletal System Book to learn about and label the bones.
  • Skull – including the jaw bone
  • Spine – cervical, thoracic and lumbar vertebrae, sacrum and tailbone (coccyx)
  • Chest – ribs and breastbone (sternum)
  • Arms – shoulder blade (scapula), collar bone (clavicle), humerus, radius and ulna
  • Hands – wrist bones (carpals), metacarpals and phalanges
  • Pelvis – hip bones
  • Legs – thigh bone (femur), kneecap (patella), shin bone (tibia) and fibula
  • Feet – tarsals, metatarsals and phalanges.
