Two fun new Hebrew/English science printables!

Haven’t done one in a while, but we’re slowwwwly working our way through the human body, and I thought I’d put two of the simple resources I’ve created.

The first are Hebrew/English Bilingual Body Systems Posters – these include the five senses, plus digestion, respiration, and a couple more.  This is the order we’re doing and the ones we’re covering this year.  I’ll probably make up a few new one when we do this AGAIN with Elemental Science.

Also, for our body unit, I traced “body outlines” of both kids and we have been pasting on the senses as we learn about them.  So the second printable are these Human Body Printable Paste-On Five Senses.  Basically, clip art images that you can cut and paste on your own child’s “body.”

Links to both these printables are on my downloads page heredon’t click the images, they will only take you to slightly bigger JPG versions!!!

Here are the body parts in action:

Naomi insists on colouring the body parts before she glues them on, and yes, she insisted on making both eyes – and ears – different colours.  She thinks it’s very beautiful.  Gavriel Zev is making a body, too.  They have been naked, leering paper people in our home for about five weeks now, but starting NEXT WEEK! they’re getting digestive systems, so they will start looking a whole lot less naked.

Again, here’s the link to download.

image In case you’re interested, the body part printouts and core information connected to them comes from My Body – available for download as an eBook from Teacher Created Resources, as well as in print (I bought it at Scholar’s Choice on Bayview). 

The kids’ bodies already have brains (see below), and the top of the face is left unglued to cleverly reveal the brain – just like in real life.  Today, I asked GZ if he wanted to show YM that we’d glued on his nose (he’s VERY proud of his body), and he said, “I don’t want him looking at my BRAIN!!!”  So I made YM promise not to peel imageback the top of the face and look at the brain.  Touchy kid!

The text accompanying each body part is short and succinct – perfect to read to Naomi for her to narrate back.  We have done a few “sense narrations” quite successfully this way.  She adds in whatever else she remembers at the same time.

All in all, an inexpensive resource I’m happy I bought!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
