February is American Heart Month and a great time for a unit study of the human heart and circulatory system! You could just put out a few heart activities in honor of the month, or your heart unit could be part of a thorough study of anatomy.
Here are some great Montessori-inspired resources for a heart and circulatory system unit:

Human Body Unit Study Pinterest Board
I have a Human Body Unit Study Pinterest board with a number of resources of all types and for many different levels. I’ll be adding to it as I come across new anatomy resources.
Have you and your child done activities related to the human heart and circulatory system?
(Note: For lots of Montessori-inspired activities related to Valentine hearts, check out last week’s Montessori Monday – Montessori-Inspired Valentine’s Day Activities.)
