You will observe the movements of the body while jumping rope. If you do not have a jump rope, just spend a few minutes jumping up and down. Try to determine the number of bones in your own bodies.


Draw a Word Search grid on a piece of paper and using the Vocabulary in Learn At Home Projects make a Word Search and see how fast your parent or sibling can complete it.





Begin a journal whether you would like to become a Doctor.  If yes, write about the type of doctor you want to become: Pediatrician, Orthopedic Surgeon, Internist, Family Physician etc…  If no, write about what it is that does not attract you to the medical field.  If you would rather be a nurse, physical therapist etc… then write about why you want to be one.


Illustrate the pages in your journal


You can make a journal with any paper you have, fold a few pieces together into a book.
