Compliment your unit on anatomy with this review sheet on blood vessel structure and function. Complete with colorful illustrations to label and study, this worksheet provides an overview of information for class members to read as well as a series of questions on the given material. This could be a great study tool for a test about blood vessels. The information comes from a textbook that is not cited.
A series of diagrams and photographs is a vivid tool for delivering a lesson about blood vessels. Each slide has notes for the lecturer to use to explain each slide. Your young biologists will increase their understanding of the structure and function of arteries, veins, and capillaries. The final slide provides a comparison chart for them to copy and complete as a review of the information absorbed.
Is there an answer for cancer? Your AP biologists will be inspired by this lecture on how the foods that we eat stimulate or inhibit the growth of blood vessels, which in turn, bring health or disease to the human body. Research is showing that eating the right foods can prevent cancer. Along with an informative lecture on this website, find multiple choice questions, links to other related talks about preventing, identifying, or reversing disease. Not only is this a fascinating enrichment for biology learners, it would also be a terrific lesson in a nutrition class.
Meant to be given both before and after a unit on the circulatory system, this assessment is a set of 15 multiple-choice questions. Middle schoolers are queried on what they know about the structure and function of the heart and blood vessels. It also touches on how the heart handles microgravity and how animals without circulatory systems transport materials. The pre-assessment session also involves starting a concept map that is to be added to throughout the following lessons.
In this blood vessel worksheet, students compare microscope slides of arteries, veins, and capillaries. This worksheet has 43 fill in the blank questions.
Ever wonder what the villi in the small intestine do? I bet your class would love to find out. Mesh netting is used to represent small blood vessels on the outside of the intestine, and a chenille bath mat is used to represent the villi inside the intestine. Learners with visual impairments will feel and discuss the model intestine to better understand how the villi move everything along.
A lab in which high schoolers examine the difference between arteries and veins. Budding biologists will find out which blood vessel can stretch furthest, recording their data in a table then answering several questions evaluating their work and safety procedures. Note: the two PDFs shown under the downloads section are both linked to the technician notes, but the sheet for your pupils is available as a Word document.
In this cardiovascular worksheet, students read through notes, label a diagram and complete 22 review questions in the format of short answer, matching, and problem solving.
Use the pump from a spray bottle to drive a model of the heart in action! In addition to modeling the function of the heart and blood vessels, aspiring anatomists also simulate arterial blockage. They compare the effects of increased heart rate and increased blockage size. Teacher instructions and student lab sheet are both provided. Consider using this lesson in a biology, health, or anatomy course.
Fourth graders explore the basic function of the heart, identify blood vessels and coronary arteries. They identify good and bad health behaviors and discuss how these behaviors affect the heart. Students explore how the coronary arteries assist the heart in staying healthy.
Third graders explore the human heart and the circulatory system. They observe how exercise affects the heart rate and how blood vessels carry blood through the heart and body. Students observe how the blood is carried to and from the heart.
Students explore the cardiovascular system. In this human body lesson plan, students observe blood flow and study cardiovascular diseases and how they affect the human body system.
Students explore the circulatory system of animals. Using the Internet, students research animals without circulatory systems. They identify the three types of blood vessels and describe the flow of blood through the heart. Finally, students use KidPix software to create a class presentation.
In this blood vessels quiz instructional activity, students complete an on-line quiz, clicking on questions and matching answers, scoring 1 point for each correct answer. A printed version is available.
In the label the blood vessels worksheet, students analyze the drawing of the human body and label the arteries that are indicated in the picture.
High schoolers participate in a layered curriculum designed lesson in order to study the cardiovascular system of the human body. The assessments and activities are student centered.
Students explain the various activities that are constantly going on in a blood cell by role playing a blood cell, antibody, pathogen, and platelets.
A variety of animals' circulatory systems are compared to the human circulatory system. Paul Andersen uses his SMART Board to show the differences between two, three, and four chamber hearts, focusing on the human heart. Blood vessels and blood components are thoroughly discussed, as well as the cardiac cycle. This is a great resource for a biology, anatomy, or physiology class. Note: At the very end of the movie, Andersen refers to the vessels that supply the heart with blood as carotid arteries. Carotid arteries supply the head and neck with blood. Andersen is referring to coronary arteries.
Find out how we describe the force created by the blood against the walls of the vessels in a heart-pumping lesson! As part of a unit on the heart and circulatory system, cardiology kids use a blood pressure monitor to find their systolic and diastolic pressures. To conclude the lesson, they discuss how blood pressure relates to health and graph class member's readings. As well-written as this lesson plan is, pressure to prepare will be removed from your heart! 
What do a dead fish, conservation, and paint have in common? The answer is a great lesson about fish anatomy, fun print making techniques, and unsustainable fishing practices. The class will start by making fish prints with a deceased fish and paint, they will discuss the functions of each part of the fish's anatomy as they label their prints. The art experience leads into a class discussion on overfishing, unsustainable fishing methods, and habitat destruction.
