    I was reticent to introduce anatomy to my little ones, not knowing what or how they would feel about seeing the inside of the human body. But since I know most of the things we fear are either conditioning or ignorance I jumped right in for Valentines and showed them a human heart. My 2 and 4 year old little girls thought it was the coolest thing and then asked to see what tummy’s look like on the inside. Brains are next, oh dear. Thank you for all the resources.They will be very handy.

      That’s been true for me as well. Last spring I put off a study of the bubonic plague because I thought it would be too hard for the kids. It ended up being one of the best studies ever!
