The human body can regulate itself through sweating and resting. Learners with visual impairments discuss how the body changes when it is under stress and what it does to regulate itself. To start, kids use talking thermometers to take their temperatures. Spark discussion with a video about fever that comes with an audio description. Then, learners can use stethoscopes to determine their heart rates before and after running in place.
Explore the human body through hands-on activities. Young learners will trace their bodies and place cut out body organs in the proper place, print patterns using cut fruit, sing songs about good nutrition, and use their five senses during many movement and art activities based on getting to know body parts and their function.
Middle schoolers investigate how the human body self-regulates to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in the external environment -- a process called homeostasis.
High schoolers study the body systems and their functions.  In this human body lesson plan students research the Internet on body systems and write a description of them. 
Students examine the different systems of the human body and how they work independently and cooperatively. They complete sevral online interactive projects designed to reinforce how the systems work alone and together. Students make posters of the various systems displaying how they function.
Students gain an understanding of how systems and organs in the human body work. They create their own fictional account of a trip through the human body, and describe one response the body makes to stimuli.
Students study toxins. In this biology lesson plan, students identify toxins contained within household products and determine specific affects that toxins may have on the human body.
Learners conduct Internet research to determine how the functions of the human body work together. Students research the following systems and their functions: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, endocrin and nervous, digestive and circulatory, excretory, reproductive, respiratory, immune.After conducting research, learners transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
Learners research systems of the human body. In this biology lesson, students read the book Yucky Story and identify the systems of the human body. Learners create a Powerpoint presentation to demonstrate their knowledge of the content.
Students examine what is healthy and unhealthy to the human body. They read and discuss the "A Healthy Menu" section of the book "The Human Body," develop a class of list of healthy and unhealthy things for the body, and write out instructions for treating an emergency.
Fifth graders are introduced to the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive systems of men and women. In groups, they review the changes their bodies go through during puberty and label the reproductive parts for each sex. They also discuss their feelings when talking about reproduction.
Students create a domino course to represent different human body systems. They discover the systems relationship to each other and their functions. They answer questions to complete the lesson.
Students explore the concept of the human body. They complete a variety of activities concerning the function of various organs. They listen to their heartbeat with a stethoscope, examine how muscles work during a game of tag, and play a game in which they identify the bones of the body.
Students describe DNA and the roles in which engineers are involved with the human body.  In this DNA lesson students participate in a class demonstration. 
Seventh graders explain how the different human body systems work together. For this biology lesson, 7th graders create a graphic organizer using Inspiration. They complete a webquest on muscular and skeletal systems.
In this density of the human body activity, students measure several parts of the body to calculate the body volume. Students convert the body volume to body mass and body density.
In this "Human Body: Pushing the Limits-Sensation" worksheet, students watch the movie and respond to 25 fill in the blank and short answer questions regarding information from the documentary.
Pupils identify toxins contained within household products, then determine specific affects that toxins may have on the human body.
Learners determine how each system in the human body is unique and specialized to perform a major function. In small groups, students explore and review a specific human body system, and create a cube to illustrate their knowledge.
Students discover how the human body's systems work together to help the body function. Students complete a Human Body Scavenger Hunt using a website, and then create a graphic organizer of their information.
