Classical Conversations Cycle 3: The Amazing Human Body

As I’ve mentioned here a time or two, our 1st grader is enjoying the Classical Conversations Foundations program. This year, we’re in Cycle 3, which includes U.S. History/Geography and human anatomy along with math facts, timeline, fine arts, and more.

Our family has been enjoying a few additional anatomy resources along with our CC memory work, so I wanted to share them with you.

Rachel and the Treeschoolers: The Amazing Human BodyRachel and the Treeschoolers (the new series from the incredible company behind Signing Time) just released a new episode entitled The Amazing Human Body! Our girls (3 and 6) love the music and fun of each Treeschoolers episode, and I love that my “not-quite-old-enough for CC” child is learning about the body right alongside her older sister.

Kate’s two favorite songs are “Simon Says” and “Five Senses”, while Addie loves to sing “My Amazing Body.” Best of all, we have the episode downloaded to our iPad for learning on the go.

Preview the episode here:


You can purchase the new episode digitally here for just $14.99 or get the DVD/CD pack here for $21.99.

Body Amazing Puzzle from Discovery ToysWe also purchased the Body Amazing puzzle from Discovery Toys earlier in the month! This incredible puzzle has four layers that help a child see all the incredible body parts found under our skin (plus the base, which features the skeletal system). The puzzle is recommended for children 4+, but I can tell you that our three-year-old is figuring it out quickly, with just a little support.

The puzzle comes with a handy booklet with lots of extra details about the human body. I appreciate that it increases fine motor and visual discrimination skills, all while opening up conversations about the intricacies of our bodies. We’ve taken this puzzle everywhere with us this week, and it’s been a big draw for children of all ages!

You can purchase the puzzle online here (boy/girl) or contact me if you’d like to host a Discovery Toys party of your own.

I hope you find these resources helpful for your preschool and primary students. Enjoy learning about our amazing human bodies this semester!

  1. Thank you, these are two new resources I haven’t run across yet for Cycle 3. I love Signing Time but hadn’t checked out Tree Schoolers yet.
