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.
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.
If the only support you are in search of is lists of vocabulary terms, this presentation may fit the bill. Slides simply list terminology. These categories are included: hierarchy of structural organization, cell functions, cell membrane, cytoplasm, organelles, cell reproduction, and cell cycle stages. There are no diagrams or photos, and no explanation is offered. Use this in an anatomy and physiology course to briefly review general biology concepts before delving into deeper content.
Students examine how genes contribute to hereditary traits using a variety of resources. In this heredity and genes lesson, students read and discuss the assigned portions of Human Anatomy & Physiology by Elaine Marieb before accessing virtual resources at assigned web sites. They write a 5 page essay as an examination.
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 investigate the male and female reproductive anatomy. The terminology is defined by them and the goal is to make them more comfortable using it in the classroom for academic purposes. Students conduct class discussion of the differences in anatomy for males and females.
Young scholars 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, young scholars transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
