New! The Function of Villi in the Small Intestine
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.
Anatomy Review: Blood Vessel Structure and Function
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.
Elastic Recoil in Arteries and Veins
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.
Blood Vessels Lab
In this blood vessel worksheet, students compare microscope slides of arteries, veins, and capillaries. This worksheet has 43 fill in the blank questions.
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.
The Human Heart
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.
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.
Blood Vessels & Circulation
Students 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.
Life in a Blood Vessel
Students explain the various activities that are constantly going on in a blood cell by role playing a blood cell, antibody, pathogen, and platelets.
New! Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?
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 plan in a nutrition class.
New! Heart and Circulation: Pre- and Post-Assessments
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.
How Does Blood Circulate?
Learners discuss health. In this healthy heart lesson, students discover the functions of veins and arteries and what a healthy heart sounds like. They discuss as a class the different parts of the heart and get a chance to listen to a partners heart through a stethoscope. This lesson includes a resource link and worksheets that go along with this activity.
Interrupting the blood flow to the brain will cause the tissues to be damaged. Sal describes the 2 main types using a great image and labels on diagrams. This ischemic stroke video assumes some knowledge of the main terms like embolism, thrombosis, etc.
Excellent diagrams, labels and summaries make this resource be valuable to your students throughout the topic of circulation. All types of circulation vessels are explained, their structure and function is detailed, and the overall system control mechanisms listed.
Stenosis, Ischemia and Heart Failure
Because medical terms can be confusing, this lecture helps the student to understand what each means and how they refer to the human condition of heart disease.
Organs for Christmas
Students make an organ tree as a Christmas tree for the room. They make models of all the organs that they have studied, tie the organs together with the framework of the skeleton and muscles, and use nerves and blood vessels as tinsel.
Factors that Affect Blood Pressure
In this cardiovascular worksheet, students read through notes, fill in one chart, and complete 26 short answer review questions.
Measuring Blood Pressure
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.
Human Anatomy - How Do We Move?
Fifth graders discover how blood moves around the body. In this circulatory system lesson, 5th graders feel their pulse before and after exercise. Students count their heart rate. Students use the scientific method to record their experiments.
Physiology ad Root Words
Students investigate the different functions of the body. In this biology lesson, students study the brain, and central nervous system. They define vocabulary words pertaining to the function of the brain and the nervous system.
