3.4 Health Science: Medical Terminology Worksheets

More than ever, it is crucial that each of us becomes our own health-care advocate. Since moms are most likely to be the ones both teaching and taking children to the doctor, this is a natural subject to learn right along with the kids! Your young students will learn more than they realize when they get to quiz you. Studying common medical terminology is a natural part of vocabulary with its many Latin and Greek root words, prefixes, and suffixes. These 25 pages of free worksheets can be arranged any way you like, printed, or reviewed online.

3.7 English: Link Literature with Activities

Author Eric Carle and his hungry caterpillar have lots of pint-sized fans. If there is a fan in your house, take a look at these suggestions from Crafts-N-Things for Children. Note the list of activities by age in the center column of the page and the holiday and seasonal lists below it. Try an internet search for activities related to your child’s favorite books or authors (Dr. Seuss + crafts +/- activities).

3.8 History: Geoguessr Online Game

This online game sets you down in a random spot on the globe and you then figure out where you are. Use the clickable features to turn around 360 degrees for an overall view, to move forward on the road or turn and go the other direction, or to zoom in on items that may provide more helpful details. Look for clues such as road signs, terrain, flora, fauna, architecture, etc., and then click on the accompanying map to make your guess and see if you are correct (you can click and drag the map, as well as zoom in on locations, to make your guess more precise). To increase the learning factor of the game, look up locations on a search engine and find out more about them.
