Back to School Activities: The Human Body

The following activities are created with classrooms of all levels in mind and work best when paired with Britannica School. Contact your library staff to see if your institution already has access.

The human body is an intricate and complicated collection of organs and body systems. These systems work together to keep our bodies functioning, growing, and moving. Check out this month’s activities to learn more about how the human body works!
