Mankind Marvelously Made is written on a relatively easy seventh and eighth level in both text and content. It is divided into four units, as follows: The Human Body (our physical make-up), Food Study (nutrition, preparation, and preservation of food), Safety and First Aid, and Mental Health (psychology). Each unit is self-contained, not depending on any of the other units for foundation knowledge. This means you can study the units in any rotation—it doesn't matter which is first or last.

The exercises and study guide questions are designed to guide the study of the text and help the students retain what they have read. All exercises and questions are to be done on paper or a separate notebook. Copywork is beneficial in several ways: Writing out answers makes a deeper impression on the mind. If strictly enforced, it also teaches careful and accurate work. Along with that, it gives practice in following instructions and finding information which is an important skill that helps a person in every station of life.

The annotated teacher's edition contains many notes to help the teacher. It also has a special section to guide the teacher in practice sessions for first aid. It contains the answers to the exercises, study guide questions, and the tests. Tests for the student are available in booklet form. This booklet also contains pages with an emergency checklist to be sent home with each student when they do the Safety and First Aid unit.
