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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Students 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.
