Human Body Systems — Free Worksheets

Last week was a quiet one. The public school kids had their spring break, so we had activities and play dates each day. We did extremely short days of school. We did start off our human body unit, though.

Once a year, we usually learn about one of the human body systems. Last year, for example, we learned about the circulatory system. This year we are going to study the digestive system.

Overview of the Human Body Systems

We started with a fun album called the Human Body Rock (we borrowed it from the library, but it’s available at Amazon) that we listened to as we made our two trips to the doctors last week (for LD’s allergy shots). The first song goes over the body systems in a fun, general way and we used that as a spring-board for talking about all the systems.

I made this matching page of all the body systems and we did that one morning to add to their science notebooks:

If you are from a school, you will probably have to use your private google account to access this file. Most school email systems won’t allow access to google docs and won’t let me add you to the “share” settings.  You can also email me to request the file and I’ll do my best to get it to you. ~Liesl

I also made a chart and we wrote down some of the lyrics to the song.

  • immune system — defends our body
  • skeletal system — all your bones
  • excretory system — cleans our body of poisons
  • muscular system — all your muscles
  • endocrine system is in control of the thyroid glands
  • digestive system — mouth and stomach
  • respiratory system — delivers your oxygen
  • nervous system — is your control center
  • circulatory system — is your life pump that keeps your blood flowing

If the album,  Human Body Rock, is not available at your local library, it is available at Amazon. You can even just download the one song (“Body System Rocks” and/or listen to a preview) for 99 cents. It’s cute and catchy and great for kids ages 4-10.
