Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

Human Body Labook & Unit

Noah has always had a huge interest in learning about the human body, but when he was younger, he was really enthralled. So, I created this lapbook template and a month-long co-op series for our homeschool group, which also included a mini-unit on the brain and five senses. Unfortunately, I don't have the co-op lessons in a format that's easy to share, but you can download the lapbook template and brain/five senses unit to use. This is our most-downloaded lapbook template by a landslide!

A note about free curriculum downloads:

I am happy to share curriculum I've put together; just because I like to reinvent the wheel doesn't mean everyone else should! All I ask is that you sign up to follow my blog and/or Facebook page before downloading. As with all our free curriculum downloads, please notify me of any errors or problems with the download links. If you're new to lapbooking, be sure to check out my how-to video, which includes links to other great lapbooking sites.

For the lapbooks, check out the lapbook archive and corresponding unit study posts; I'll usually have pictures of our completed book to help you along the way. If you like the way it turns out, please consider sharing thoughts or pictures of your experience on our Facebook page.

Enjoy, and happy homeschooling!


  1. Hello - I would love to download this lapbook template but when I go to the file hosting site and click download, all I get is an invalid image. The PDF file does not download. Any tips for that site?

  2. I have been looking for something like this! I am so excited to put this together with my littles! Thank you for posting!!

  3. You are very welcome, Mindy. Hope you guys enjoy it! :)

  4. Hi Jessica. Love your blog! I think the human body and the senses lapbooks are great but I cannot download them. Is the link still available? Thanks. Michelle UK

  5. Hi Michelle! Yes, it should still work. Make sure you are using the "download this file" button (black background) in the middle of the page (rather the Download button on a green background at the top of the page).

    If for some reason that doesn't work, I'd be happy to email it to you. :)

  6. This is an awesome resource. I am starting a unit on humand body systems and would love to use parts of your lapbook ideas to incorporate in my unit. Unfortunately, I've tried to download your lapbook and have had no luck. Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

  7. Hi, I too think this is so wonderful and am happy that you've shared with all! I can't wait to use it...but I also can not get it to download :(. Will you please email me the human body lapbook, as well as the brain/senses one? Please email to avill7 at gmail dot com. Thanks so much in advance!
