In this excretory system learning exercise, 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.
In this internal systems and regulation activity, 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.
In this dissection worksheet, students identify as many structures as they can while dissecting a sheep heart. This worksheet has 23 matching and 12 short answer questions.
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. 
Fifth graders examine a sheep heart. In this biology instructional activity, 5th graders dissect a sheep heart to identify the parts of a heart including the aorta, valve, septum, and ventricle.
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. Finally, they complete a crossword puzzle to show their understanding of the circulatory system.
In this word search worksheet, students locate words related to the biology. The word list includes colon, esophagus, masseter, aorta, and pinnae.
With schools focusing on physical fitness activities, now is the perfect time to teach students about the circulatory system.
In this circulatory system worksheet, students review the functions of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Students label the parts of a human heart on a diagram. This worksheet has 4 short answer, 13 matching, and 9 true or false questions.
Pupils describe how blood flows through the heart and the anatomy of the aortic valve. They examine the condition of aortic stenosis and create diagrams of the condition in the heart. They complete experiments using the model they created and identify its strengths and weaknesses.
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. The instructions for the assignment include writing a poem about how the heart pumps blood. 
Fourth graders explore the human circulatory system in this unit of fourteen lessons. The heart, capillaries, blood, arteries, veins, and blood cells form the basis of this unit. The research and work of iam Harvey is investigated.
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. An incredible resource!
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. Finally, your young scientists will learn about the relationship between the body's need for more oxygen during physical activity and the heart's effort to deliver that oxygen. This is the third resource in a series of fitness and physical activity lessons.
Break hearts with this lesson; chicken or sheep hearts, that is! Your class examines the external and internal structure of the heart with a dissection activity. Extremely detailed notes are provided for you to safely guide learners through the exploration. It is highly recommended that you access and teach the previous two lessons that are part of the same unit on the heart and circulation so that pupils are already familiar with the structures they will be looking at. If you cannot purchase class sets of hearts, you could opt to dissect one as a demonstration.
Fourth graders explore the circulatory system as the major highway that transports blood, oxygen, and nutrients to all parts of the body. This is a ten lesson unit utilizing research, and hands on activities to examine the work of iam Harvey.
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. Since there is so much reading, consider creating a comprehension worksheet to make sure you class is absorbing the relevant information.
In this science worksheet, students match eighteen circulatory system vocabulary terms with the correct definitions. Answers are provided.
In this biology worksheet, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms pertaining to the respiratory system of the body. There are 19 biology terms located in the word search.
Aspiring anatomists label a photograph of a human heart by comparing it to a colored diagram on the same page. The video that is mentioned in the procedure does not seem to be available, but the overview provides plentiful background information, a detailed set of instructions, and a crisp worksheet focused on the external view of the heart. Classroom slides that you can project for a larger view of the image are available at the publisher's website. Use the lesson alone or in conjunction with the next lesson in the larger unit, which takes a look at the interior of the heart.
