Did you know that high-speed aviators need to wear a special g-suit in order to keep blood flowing to their brains when experiencing intense acceleration forces? Bill Nye takes a flight in such a situation. After his trip, two facts about the circulatory system are flashed on the screen. That is all there is to this short clip, but it's enough to get the blood pumping in your life science class!
Students build a regression model about blood volume. For this building a regression model about blood volume lesson, students make a scatter plot of mass and blood volume. Students find a linear model to fit the data. Students predict the blood volume of a person with a given weight.
High schoolers explore the different blood types, and are introduced to new knowledge through a crime scene simulated activity. They explore the genetics of blood types, and are introduced to immunology/diseases.
High schoolers view a simple ABO blood system for the introduction of this subject using concrete models of eythrocytes (red blood cells, or RBC's), antigens, and antibodies. They can physically see the antigens that result from certain allele combinations and can move antibodies to determine whether agglutination occurs when two given blood types are mixed.
Students explore the circulatory system. They participate in media activities to explore blood flow and identify the parts of the circulatory sytem. Students create a model of the circulatory system.
Young scholars name the vessels and parts of the heart. They trace the path of blood through the heart. Students examine the function of the circulatory system. They recognize the differences between a hear when the body is at rest opposed to one in which the body has been involved in exercise.
Young scholars understand that there is a great difference among Indians. In this Indian identity lesson plan students discover that there are requirements to be in a tribe. Young scholars write a paper listing the process to become a tribe member. Students will also write about the history of and how blood quantums are used.
Fifth graders discover how blood moves around the body. For 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.
Students consider biomedical ethical issues. In this ethics lesson, students examine a case study about a boy with leukemia whose father refuses his blood transfusions based on faith. Students consider the principles of the ethical decision as they complete the provided worksheets and discuss their impressions.
The ciculatory system is introduced here by means of clear, labelled diagrams and charts with details. After learning the basics of the heart strucure, a sequence of slides help show the flow the blood as the heart muscle contracts. A comprehensive review of all components in the circulatory system.
Students examine human blood flow by comparing the pulse of athletes. In this human body lesson, students discover the equation for finding the cardiac output from a human heart. Students identify heart rates of accomplished athletes as well as wild animals and create an illustration demonstrating blood flow.
Students study the relationship between the heart and circulation. For this circulatory system lesson, students read the "What Am I?" article about the heart and discuss. Students draw a heart and lungs, discover how blood is pumped through the circulatory system and watch a demonstration of the process.
Starting with a diagram of the kidneys and urinary tract of the human, this sheet has questions about excretion, blood concentrations of hormones, gland feedback mechanisms and the effects of some hormones.
Seventh graders explain the role of white blood cells in fighting infections. In this life science lesson, 7th graders create flow charts showing the immune response process. They act out and play a game to simulate actions of the immune system.
Young scholars participate in a role-play activity to lean about red and white blood cells, veins, capillaries and arteries. They also see how blood passes through the heart, lungs and out of the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients.
Students explore how high blood pressure can affect the body without one being aware of it. They, using the Internet, learn causes, preventive measures, and treatment plans. They explore how lifestyle and heredity impacts high blood pressure.
Learners 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.
Ninth graders analyze and interpret data. In this Algebra I instructional activity, 9th graders investigate the relationship between the mass of a person and that person’s volume of blood. Students enter date into a spreadsheet, plot the data, determine the regression equations, and use the equation to answer questions.
Young scholars, in teams, solve a crime using forensic lab techniques. They apply lab techniques to a real life situation using a crime scenario that takes place on campus. Sample activities include Blood, Fiber, and Hair Lab.
Middle schoolers learn the process in which blood is circulated throughout the body and explain the effects of exercise on the heart. The teacher ask questions, students perform a physical activity and then make a histogram of the student's pulse rates
