Unifying themes in animal anatomy and physiology are displayed slide by slide. The main concepts involve the differentiation in cells and tissues, and details are given about fuel management, metabolism, and some other essential processes.
Young scholars study structural animal adaptations and how they aid survival. They examine the differences between carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. They investigate the specialized body parts that assist the animals when they eat. They write a menu for an animal that caters to its specific adaptations.
Molecular Evidence for Evolutionary Relationship
Students investigate the relationship between humans and yeast. In this evolution lesson, students compare amino acids in a variety of life forms. Students will watch films on similarities of the genetic code that structures an organism.
Learners compare and contrast the types of coverings found on animals. They identify a wide variety of animals in a museum room. They classify animals based on their coverings as well.
Animal Parts Match the Environment
Students explore what characteristics animals have in order to move and eat within their environment. In this animal lesson, students watch an interactive Power Point and identify animal body parts. Students choose an animal and create a puppet with the correct characteristics for that animal.
The Animal Body and How it Moves
Spark interest in the body structure of vertebrates with this comprehensive and colorful learning exercise. Your biology class will explore the levels of organization, primary tissue types, and the main organ systems. Finally, they hone in on how skeletal muscles contract, allowing vertebrate motility. Consider assigning this as homework.
Science: Animal Body Parts
Students examine animal vocabulary words and identify which animals have those characteristics. In small groups, they play an animal card game involving more vocabulary words. Students continue to drill on terms by completing worksheets and an animal crossword puzzle.
RIDE THE WILD LEAF
Students identify and interpret that leaves provide food for new trees and plants. Students cut out leaves and glue them on the appropriate number on included worksheet. Students collect different types of leaves and make leaf rubbings. Students identify all the different types of leaves they have collected.
Animal Body Coverings
Students discover animal characteristics by reading a children's book in class. In this fur lesson, students identify the harsh weather most Alaskans deal with every year and discuss how animal fur kept them from freezing in the past. Students read the book Do Frogs Have Fur? and answer study questions in their science journals.
Animal Body Parts Vocabulary
For this science worksheet, students analyze 7 pictures of animal body parts such as: tusk, claw, snout. Students read 3 word choices and circle the word that matches the picture.
Animal Anatomy and Physiology I
Students identify the different parts of the animal body. In this anatomy lesson series, students complete worksheets as they go along the lesson. They take a test at the end of the unit.
Fast Food in the American Psyche
Help learners make the connection between fast food, television, and social issues in the United States. They will keep a journal of their own habits, view a quick video, compare their habits in small groups, complete a jigsaw activity, put together dialectical journals, present information, participate in a fishbowl discussion, and compose an essay. Articles about fast food are included here as are instructions for an extended research paper on related topics.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
Fifth Grade Science Assessment
In this science assessment worksheet, students complete a 25 question multiple choice quiz about biology. Plant and animal anatomy is included.
New! Skeletal Structures
What better way to study the structures of organisms than by creating a new being? After considering different types of skeletal supports (exoskeleton and endoskeleton), budding biogeneticists work together to create their own animals - first on paper, then using basic materials. They must decide whether an external or internal skeleton would work best, then think about how the creature will move. Depending on the background knowledge your class has, you may want to allow for some research time to look into different skeletal structures of a variety of animals to help them brainstorm. The actual time needed for the activity will vary depending on the age of the learners.
Comparative anatomy prevails in the lesson exploring diversity among invertebrates. Biologists examine physical characteristics of an earthworm from phylum annelida and a meal worm from phylum insecta. They also inspect a cricket and a crayfish, both arthropods, but from different classes. Plenty of direction, space for recording observations, and follow-up questions make this handout a thorough investigation of invertebrates for middle or high school biology classes, especially when studying classification.
A Study of Organs
Seventh graders dissect animals to investigate their anatomy. In this life science lesson, 7th graders name at least three different internal organs. They explain the functions of these organs.
Magst du ein gutes R??tsel...-Tier? Do You Like a Good Mystery...Animal?
In this German language instructional activity, 3rd graders use their love of animals to enrich their developing skill with the German language. They participate in a sorting activity, also using their German skills, to sort animals into mammal/non mammal groups. Students complete the unit by completing an animal mobile.
The Dig: Them Bones
Students compare their body parts to the bones of the "Turkana Boy" found in the roots of a thorn tree by Africa's Lake Turkana. They explore an online interactive feature on the National Geographic Xpedition website, and label a traced outline of their own bodies.
Educate and entertain at the same time! When presenting upcoming biologists with homeostasis in animals, use this colorful and information-packed presentation. Animals make humorous comments on the information provided. It details the processes of water balance and nitrogen waste removal with diagrams, photos, and comprehensive notes.
