As you know, I am a homeschooler, and I am always looking for different ways to teach the “normal” subjects.
The OrganWise Guys are a different, but entertaining way to teach different parts of the body.
I really love their slogan, “Teaching children to be smart from the inside out.”
For our family this made showing the girls how their insides work, easier and fun…
From the website:
The cast of The OrganWise Guys — Hardy Heart, Peri Stolic (the large intestine), Sir Rebrum, Pepto the Stomach and Sid and Kid Kidney (The Kidney Brothers) along with buddies Calci M. Bone, Windy the Lungs and Madame Muscle is a collection of friendly, delightfully eccentric characters that are cleverly personified body parts.
They invite parents and their children to join them on child-friendly experiences as they learn to incorporate healthy eating and physical activity into their daily lives.
The OrganWise Guys puppets deliver bite-sized messages, meshed with humor, songs and exciting situations that children will love. Pre-school and school-aged children learn about nutrition, physical activity, character education and other life skills through inspiring music and adventures and a host of product offerings.
Their website has TONS of great Teacher Tools and a wealth of information… perfect for any homeschooling family. There are free downloads, assessments, and more.
The OrganWise Guys Kit includes:
- Soft plush toys: The Kidney Brothers and Hardy Heart
- Educational DVDs: (1) H2Ohhhhh! Learn and love everything about water from The Kidney Brothers and; (2) Extreme Couch Potato with Hardy Heart, who learns to get off the couch, eat healthy snacks and go outside to play!
- Books and activity books: Smart from the Inside Out – kids meet The OrganWise Guys and learn the rules of the club.
- Tattoos: set of 10 OrganWise Guys characters
