You can easily plan your lesson around this website. I have made up a spelling list using the items in the digestive system. It is really a great learning tool. For another option for learning about the digestive system, you can click here.

Learning about the heart through this interactive site can be a lot of fun for your children. It will enable kids to learn how they can keep their heart as healthy as possible as they get older.
