From Head to Toe


Math and
Back in the fall we received the Earth Book from AIMS to review. The girls really enjoyed that book so when the Crew was offered another book from AIMS I knew we would like to try another one. This time we received From Head to Toe.

This 288 page book is divided into 27 activities that go through all the bodies systems and sensory organs. It is filled with hands on activities. The student makes rubber band books which are folded pieces of paper and held together with a rubber band that tells about the topic being studied. You can make a two-chamber heart, a pair of lungs, connect bones to make a skeleton, act out the digestive system and many more.
My girls are really enjoying this book because it has so many hands on activities. Each one we have done is very easy to understand and implement. They used items we either had around the house or could be purchased for very little cost any where. The rubber band books are very simple to put together but my girls love to color and read them. And the best part is that they are remembering what is being taught. I think this book can be used alone or if you already have a curriculum and would like a supplement this would be great for that too.

From Head to Toe is recommended for children in Grades 5-9 and can be purchased for $24.95, that includes the book & the CD.

AIMS Educational Foundation is a non profit foundation dedicated to giving kids a solid understanding of math and science. AIMS started in 1981 when 80 teachers came together because they wanted to give students a strong hands-on foundation in math and science. Teachers loved the first AIMS activity book and students learned more. They are a non-profit organization because they believe in educating the student instead of making money. The foundation was founded by Dr. Arthur Wiebe and is located on the campus of Fresno Pacific University.

AIMS offers many K-9 math and science selections at their online store, some of them can be purchased in a PDF format. There are also Literature Links, Labs, Kits, & Components to help with the hands-on learning.

The TOS Crew received several different math & science books from AIMS. Sail on over to see what other products were & how they were used.
Disclaimer: As a member of the TOS Crew I received From Head to Toe free of charge to use with my children in exchange for my honest review.
