removable parts. We also used a worksheet with inwards)

We used a half-sized skeleton model to teach about the bones. I thought I was ordering a full sized, but it turns out that half-sized was large enough.
We used a large (life-sized?) model with 26 removable parts to learn about the inwards, e.g., brain, heart, lungs, liver, stomach, etc. As maid children, we had no need for the male genital insert so I discarded it without showing it to Hannah. We named our model, "Julia Corruptible Adam". Signifying that as remarkable as our bodies are, they are corruptible. They get sick and they will die.
The 26-part dual sex torso includes thoracic vertebra, 4-part head with brain, female breast covering, 2 lungs, 2-part heart, 2-part stomach, liver with gall bladder, front kidney half, 4-part intestine system, 4-part male genital insert, and 3-part female genital insert with embryo.
Science Topics Covered in Year 2
Below are some of the topics that we covered in Science. We did not have a regular science class. The mind needs time to rest and assimilate information and use it. Much of this was learned during our two week orientation and then just reviewed from time to time throughout the school year.
General overview of thirteen (13) body systems (digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, integumentary, etc.). This was done only a few times to acquaint her with the fact that there are different functions regulating the body. We did a little closer study of several of the easier to understand body systems, e.g., digestion. Axial skeleton (you cannot live without it), Appendicular skeleton (your appendices-- arms and legs) are held on to your axial skeleton by the pectoral girdle and the pelvic girdle). Creation consists of both living (plant, animal, man) and non-living elements (dry land, rocks). There are three great domains: (1) dry land (2) sea, (3) firmament--all of which are inhabited. The creation is full of cycles and patterns. Review the globe, continents, islands, seas, water cycle, wind cycle, where I live... We drew our own skeletons free hand at various times. The senses. During our Ancient History class, when we arrived at Leviticus 11, we took time to study the anatomy of the sacrificial animals. What I found is that our early studies of man's anatomy served as a benchmark against which to compare
