New! Human Body Regulation
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.
The Human Body
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.
Human Body Regulation
Students investigate how the human body self-regulates to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in the external environment -- a process called homeostasis.
The Ultimate Guide: Human Body
Students study the body systems and their functions. In this human body lesson students research the Internet on body systems and write a description of them.
Ego Trip- Exploring the Inner Workings of the Human Body
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.
Biology: Systems of the Human Body
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.
How Do Toxins Affect the Human Body?
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.
Human Body Review System
Middle schoolers 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, middle schoolers transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
Systems of the Human Body
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.
"The Human Body"
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.
Human Body Series - Digestive System
With articles entitled, "What's Puke?" and "What is a Fart?" this digestive system instructional activity is sure to be a gas! Elementary anatomists do a belly dance to illustrate how food moves through the digestive system and then design a board game in which the board is shaped like the organs involved. Several articles and a video are available through the publisher's website to provide information. Note that because the website has been updated since the production of this document, not all of the article and video titles are the same. Don't eliminate it, however! Laughter and learning are sure to be expelled during this session!
It is fascinating to learn about apoptosis and the fact that cells are able to destroy themselves without any external influence. Sal creates interest in the huge number of cells and the complexity of the human body. The likelihood of a mutation causing a problem is small, and that mutation would have to be within the genes controlling self-destruction and replication. The lecture continues with details of tumor growth and the differences between malignant, benign, invasive, and metastases.
Human Body Presentations
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!
Human Body Series - Respiratory System
Elementary schoolers play a respiratory relay toss in order to take in the respiratory system! They also create their own question cards based on several kid-friendly online articles about breathing and the health of the lungs. They use their cards to play a board game, Take a Breath! The templates for the relay and board game cards are included in this document, as well as the game board itself. Be aware that the title for the article, "Looking at Your Lungs" has not been updated on the document even though it has been on the host website. The video has also been updated and is no longer titled, Respiratory System (Movie). Consider bookmarking the URLs to minimize confusion, but don't let it detract you from making use of these terrific resources!
Anatomy and Physiology (Lesson 1)
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.
Human Body Systems: The Domino Effect
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 instructional activity.
Life Science: Exploring Our Human Bodies
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.
Human Body Systems
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.
Density of the Human Body
In this density of the human body worksheet, students measure several parts of the body to calculate the body volume. Students convert the body volume to body mass and body density.
Human Body: Pushing the Limits-Sensation
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.
