I am not a school teacher but a homeschooling mother, and I have found this book to be a great tool to do something fun and educational with my 4 y.o. He loves this activity. He is a pre-schooler but I can see how this book would be useful for older students, maybe up to third grade. I do wish the text of the organs described could have been on it's own page and not the back of what we are cutting. Therefore, if you want to keep the description, it either has to be copied or re-written. In a classroom setting I can see how this would also be a huge hit, and obviously the text/organs will have to be copied anyway. Also, the quality of the paper is thin, could have been a little thicker. Overall, I would buy this book again. Highly recommend this book.

My Body is a great book for anyone interested in teaching young people about the basic functions of their bodies. The book provides clear directions to help students construct a "replica" of themselves with scale sized parts. There are coloring guidelines for each part so that children also grasp a clear idea of what the body part looks like. The book then explains the function of each part in simple terms (appropriate for a 6-9 year old). I recommend this as a teaching aid for any health education teacher.

The explainations of each body part and system are simple and easy to understand, and my three preschool children love the coloring, cutting, and gluing they get to do when we do this activity... and I think they are actually learning about the body.

A great resource for parents who teach their young children at home, this book would likely also work well in a classroom setting.

One of our favorite elementary science project books! After tracing the outline of your child on a large roll of paper, each body system is explained, a picture of the organ is colored and pasted on their traced body, so that at the end you have an entire body with all organs and systems hanging on the wall to enjoy. So fun and easy to do.

My 1st and 6th grader enjoyed doing this book together. They both now have a life size body on our school room wall, complete with internal organs and a face!

Did this with my Homeschooled children (kindergarten and pre-K3) and they had a blast. It's broken down into kid language, so it's great for little ones. I copied and pasted a picture of their faces to a word document, blew it up, and cut them out and went ahead and stuck them on the body the first day. For the body I got a roll of brown wrapping paper from Michaels and traced their bodies and cut them out. We just taped them to the wall, and taped their life-sized heads on there. Once they realized it was them and their body they were thrilled to actually learn about the parts and put them on.
All you do is what I've mentioned so far, but take the book to a copy machine and make a copy or copies of each page (body part). That way instead of cutting out of the book, you can use it for multiple children. Then you just read the description to them out of the book and answer their questions while they color and cut out their body parts. We did one organ/bone per day for several weeks and it worked out perfectly!

I teach special education students with many handicapping conditions. I have used this book at every grade level from 2nd grade to high school. With older kids the instructions to have the kid lay down on a large sheet of paper and trace them does not work out. The resulting outline will be too large for the printed body parts. Just make an outline that is about the size of a second grade kid (borrow a kid from another class if you need to). Use the outline as a pattern for students to trace. The information about each body part is simple, yet accurate and appropriate for older students with reading problems. There are even optional pages for the reproductive organs. I've had my students make these body models every year for several years and all my students have enjoyed it. I happen to have 10 of these bodies hanging up in the hallway outside my classroom right now (I'm currently working at middle school level). Today the principal was leading some visitors through the school on a tour. My classroom door was open and I saw the visitors stop to admire the bodies. They were impressed that we were doing "real academics" with our disabled students.

Buy this book. It is one of the best resources for science in any class.

We purchased 2 of this book - one for home and one for our daughter's pre-school. They incorporated it into a season of learning about the body.
