Human Body Series - Cardiovascular System - Heart Diagram
Don't pound the pavement when looking for a simple assignment on this vital organ! A neatly drawn diagram of the heart is the feature of this page. There are nine blanks that point to different structures. Pupils print the name of each structure to identify it.
5th - 8th Science
Fourth graders engage in a five-lesson plan series of activities designed to teach them all about the circulatory system. These well-designed plans invite pupils to engage in stimulating hands-on activities, as well as setting personal fitness goals and learning about their own blood types.
Fetal Pig: Circulatory System
Step-by-step instructions for fetal pig dissection and viewing of the circulatory system is given in this exercise. Your young biologists match the names to the organs or label a diagram of the pig circulatory system. This resource is comprehensive, but will need to be formatted to fit neatly onto paper for printing.
9th - 12th Science
The Excretory System
In this excretory system worksheet, students describe the functions that the organs of the urinary system perform and what happens when the kidneys do not work properly. Students also name the excretory organs of the body and explain why the skin is considered one.
9th - Higher Ed Science
Internal Systems and Regulation
In this internal systems and regulation worksheet, students correctly decide if given statements are true or false. Students apply information learned about the circulatory system to the given statements to determine statements of truth and accuracy.
7th - 9th Science
Heart Rate and Exercise
What is the relationship among the heart, circulation, and exercise? Your class members will explore first-hand how different physical exercises affect an individual's heart rate. They will begin by learning how to measure their own heart rate, and then working individually or in partners, will analyze the effect of such activities as breathing deeply, doing jumping jacks, and listening to fast music.

Investigation: Pollution Prevention Is Disease Prevention
Plenty of background information about how air pollution affects much more than just our lungs is included on this attractive handout. After reading, pupils make a working model of a lung and diaphragm. Junior physicians place a small piece of cotton in the lung to find out what happens.
4th - 6th Science CCSS: Adaptable
The Circulatory System
Students follow the path of blood from its entrance into the right atrium of the heart until it leave through the aorta to the rest of the body. They study the heart's structure and how it pumps blood using the included activities. They perform exercise and relaxation techniques to see how hard the heart works.
5th - 7th Science
You Gotta Have Heart: Congenital Heart Defects and Heart Surgery
Assess anatomists' understanding of the structure of the mammalian heart by giving a pretest. Have them visit some websites to further learn about heart anatomy. Then take them into the laboratory to perform a dissection so that they get hands-on experience.
9th - 12th Science
Circulatory System and the Heart
Watch as the Khan Academy explains why red bloods are efficient carriers of hemoglobin and explains the difference between pulmonary arteries and veins. This thorough video with great explanations and diagrams will surely help your biologists or beginning anatomists.

Investigating Birth Defects
Intended to inform a general audience on why birth defect happen, they take on the role of epidemiologists. They will read background information, conduct internet research, and compile the information. A mock investigation and diagnoses concludes the lesson.
7th - 8th Science
Gas exchange: Respiratory Systems
The need for a respiratory system in humans versus being reliant on gas exchange structures is demonstrated. There are many details about the advantages and disadvantages of each mechanism. Students are able to learn about the hemoglobin (haemoglobin) and oxygen dissociation curve.
