Students are introduced to the physical, social and emotional development that takes place during adolescence and specifically, puberty. They use a worksheet and discussion to consider that not all development occurs at the same time.
New! Animal Brains
Do big bodies make big brains? Let your learners decide whether there is an association between body weight and brain weight by putting the data from different animals into a scatterplot. They can remove any outliers and then make a line of best fit to show whether the relationship is positive or negative. Fortunately for us, human brains are heavy!
Students explore the extinction of dinosaurs. In this organisms lesson, students watch dinosaur video clips on a website and participate in a discussion about dinosaurs. Students create a dinosaur finger puppet.
In this anatomy worksheet, students use their textbook, notes, or Internet to complete required information for 11 different human organ systems.
For this heredity worksheet, students will create 3 Punnett squares to determine the genotype and phenotype of the offspring from specific breedings. Then students will answer 7 true or false questions based on chromosomes and sex-linked traits. Then students will answer 4 short answer questions about environmental influences on gene expression.
Students create a timeline of human population growth based on guided reading. In this biology lesson, students analyze the trend of how population increased over time. They share their findings in class.
Middle and high schoolers discover how to recognize when a mountain lion is about to attack. They identify the most effective actions they can take to increase their chance of survial. A very clever card game is played that requires learners to match a mountain lion's behavior with the risk and recommended human response. This fine plan has all the worksheets you need to implement the card game. An excellent all-around plan!
Students recognize that achievements of human beings throughout human history can be considered part of the ongoing story of human evolution. They research settings such as the biosphere and Mars and write imaginative short stories using those settings.
Students complete an interactive Internet activity simulating the sequencing of DNA. In this genetics lesson, students use a virtual activity to act as scientists sequencing chromosomal DNA bases. They learn about the race to sequence the genome and explore sequenced DNA to learn about its functions. A Jeopardy game is provided to review the material with students.
Students investigate recent archaeological challenges to theories of human origins. They research the history and geography of various African regions to create proposals for future excavations.
Learners differentiate passive and active transport. In this biology lesson plan, students discover how substances pass through the cell membrane. They discuss the pros and cons of biotechnology.
Students explain how genes determine our individual traits. In this biology lesson, students use Mendelian genetics to predict phenotype and genotype. They compare and contrast the role of DNA and RNA.
In this word search worksheet, students locate 75 words related to human biology. Words include bone, tissue, tendon, and histology.
In this online interactive human biology crossword puzzle worksheet, students use the 9 clues to find the appropriate answers to complete the word puzzle.
Students use background knowledge to summarize articles about skin cancer research and present them to the class and place their studies along a clinical study timeline. They are introduced to clincal trails and to various aspects of the biology of skin, cancer and the relationship between UV radiation and skin cancer.
In this population worksheet, students will determine if 12 statements about demographic trends, including the effects of birth and death rates on populations, are true or not. Then students will match 6 population growth vocabulary words with the correct statements. Finally students will fill in the blank of 6 statements relating to the movement of human populations from one area to another.
Students perform a lab to becoe familar with scientific concepts. The skill of inquiry is essential and this lesson furthers its development. The intelligence of kinesthetics is used as learners perform the many aspects of this lab exercise.
Tenth graders examine the effects of the breakout of the West Nile Virus. They make predictions on its origin. They develop and present an action plan to stop the virus from spreading.
In this word search activity, students locate 33 words related to human biology. Words include fiber, synergists, and stationary.
Young scholars investigate exotic pets and the ecological and personal risks involved in trading and owning such animals. They synthesize their knowledge by creating advertisements that promote the sale of exotic pets and picket signs that protest their sale.
