Please, review the menu below to learn more about the Learning Curve’s Science Odyssey activities. From October 2012 through May 2013, we are featuring The Human Puzzle activities, which highlight the science of the human body. For help selecting and scheduling activities, arranging lunchroom accommodations and travel logistics contact our group visit coordinator at 317-275-4222 or via email.
The Human Puzzle
Body Banner Story Time
We look different on the outside, but have the same important parts on the inside. Enjoy head-to-toe learning in this interactive story time with healthy body books and activities. Little learners help make a stop motion animation while placing Velcro fabric parts onto body banners or anatomy aprons.
Indiana Academic Standards: Science K.1.1, K.4.2, K.5.1, K.6.1, 1.6.1, 2.6.1, 2.6.2
People Puzzle Picture
Bodies are made of all kinds of shapes. First, students study a wooden figure to observe the different shapes found within the human body structure. Next, use Image Blender software to find the best shapes to fill in the human figure, and add flair!
Indiana Academic Standards: Science K.5.1, 1.1.1, 1.4.2, 1.6.1, 2.6.1, 2.6.2, 3.2.6
Found Object Figure Sculpture
Our bodies are like machines with many working parts. Students study a torso model of the internal human structure, and then work together to build their own sculpture using provided recycled materials and found objects. Use a webcam and a laptop to capture the construction process and create a stop motion animation to see the sculpture come to life.
Indiana Academic Standards: Science 2.1.6, 2.1.7, 2.2.4, 2.6.2, 3.4.7, 4.1.8
Systems Scavenger Hunt
Discover the different systems that make your body work. Explore the functions of each system of the human body through this interactive scavenger hunt. Follow the clues throughout the Learning Curve and complete challenges along the way to collect fun facts and complete the mission.
Indiana Academic Standards: Science 2.5.3
