Quick! Where’s the fibula? Or is it the tibia? If you’re not sure whether we’re talking about part of your body or ancient Roman ruins, tune in! This week on Home School Heartbeat, author Jeannie Fulbright joins host Mike Smith to talk about teaching human anatomy in your homeschool.
My guest this week is Jeannie Fulbright. Jeannie is a homeschooling mom and the author of science curriculum resources, including Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology. Jeannie, thanks so much for being with us this week!
Thank you, Mike, for having me! It’s a blessing to be here.
Well, Jeannie, for some of us, anatomy sounds like one of those intimidating subjects where you have to memorize every bone in the human body! What exactly is anatomy?
Well, in layman’s terms, anatomy is the study of the different parts and organs of the body, and physiology is the study of how all those parts and organs work. And, as far as science topics go, anatomy really is one of the most wonderful and fascinating topics you can learn about because it really brings us face to face with the awesomeness of God. If we study the incredible complex structure cells, or something like the baffling intelligence of our immune system, or even the design of our organs, like our stomach, you just find yourself really wanting to worship the Lord, because it’s just amazing how God has designed all of these structures to work.
Well thanks, Jeannie! I’m looking forward to learning more about how to teach anatomy in homeschooling, all this week! And until then, I’m Mike Smith.
