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.
Learners 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 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, students transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
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 research systems of the human body. In this biology lesson plan, 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.
Learners 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.
Seventh graders explain how the different human body systems work together. In this biology lesson plan, 7th graders create a graphic organizer using Inspiration. They complete a webquest on muscular and skeletal systems.
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.
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.
Middle schoolers 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.
Middle schoolers 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.
A presentation about the human body is a great way to end your unit on the body system. Sixth graders will use Microsoft Publisher, Prezi, and other video resources to create a presentation showcasing what they know about the major functions and parts of the body system. Tip: This can be modified to the materials and programs you have available. If you do not have access to computers, use a poster board!
Young scholars inquire about human anatomy by completing a worksheet. In this body systems lesson, students discuss the importance of a self-regulating body and how the skeletal, muscular, respiratory and digestive system all take care of themselves. Young scholars complete a science worksheet based on anatomy identification and digestion.
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the drawing of the anatomy of the human body. They conduct research using a variety of resources and create a drawing on the ground with sidewalk chalk. Students also view models of the body as an aide for the drawing.
Middle and high schoolers solve a riddle about the appendix, and explore the paradox surrounding this organ. They research other human body organs to create a paper model of the human body, and write riddles highlighting identifying characteristics of each.
Students study that the human body is made up of different systems whose functions are related. They draw and label their traced body outlines which include at least five body systems.
Students identify the systems of the human body and their functions. They illustrate the systems to investigate where and how they function in the body. Afterward, they layer these systems to comprehend the depth and dimension of the human body.
Students are introduced to their bodies, their parts, their functions and their location. They interact with a roll of newsprint from a local newspaper office and a detailed book on the human body that gives pictures of the body parts.
Students work in cooperative groups to design a theme park called Gastro World, based on the anatomy and physiology of the digestive system. They prepare a portfolio of the park's attractions and construct a model of it.
