The Circulatory System
In this circulatory system worksheet, students review the functions of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Students label the parts of a human heart on a diagram. This worksheet has 4 short answer, 13 matching, and 9 true or false questions.
Students investigate the circulatory system. In this circulatory system lesson, students complete a WebQuest and explore all the areas of the heart. Students determine the functions of different parts of the circulatory system and examine the effects of a healthy diet and exercise.
Students explore the circulatory system and the scientific method. They perform an experiment to measure how varying amounts of physical activity affects heart rate and use the Investigation Journal provided to record their data and make a conclusion.
Fourth graders study the components and physiology of the human circulatory system.
How Sickle Cell Anemia Affects the Circulatory System
Students research about sickle cell anemia. For this biology lesson, students explain the function of the circulatory system. They create a brochure about how a single mutation affects its function.
The Circulatory System: A Healthy Heart
Seventh graders identify the different components of the circulatory system. For this biology lesson, 7th graders use an interactive website to further study the parts and functions of each component. They create a "glog" or PowerPoint presentations to demonstrate mastery.
Study Jams! The Circulatory System
The topic of this video is sure to get hearts pumping! Mia and Zoe just finish racing and discuss what is going on in the circulatory system. They expound on the capillaries, veins, arteries, the structure of the heart, and the functioning of the circulatory system. After watching the video, life science learners can review key vocabulary by clicking on each term and assess their learning with a multiple-choice quiz, both of which are embedded on the webpage. For your convenience, find links to related human body systems resources at the bottom of the page.
Students 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.
Highways of Life
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.
Artificial Heart Technology
Students discover the basics of the human heart and how it functions. They examine the whole circulatory system and how an electric heart would work inside the human body. They can choose to perform their own surgery by following instructions.
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.
A slideshow that covers the all-important details related to basic human circulation. The reasoning for exchange of material methods is presented and then labeled diagrams of the main human transfer systems are shown, along with statements and related facts to increase understanding. The logical and clear presentation will be very useful for your pupils and the PowerPoint can be printed to allow them to fill in the gaps and complete definitions where needed.
The Circulatory System-Word Search
In this circulatory system word search, students find a set of 10 words/phrases related to the circulatory system, then read 3 statements about the system and draw a picture of a kidney.
The Circulatory System--Part VI
Students outline a body on butcher paper. Students fill in the circulatory system using materials of various textures. Students decorate all the parts of the circulatory system with art articles, like buttons, yarn, etc.
A Tour Through the Circulatory System
Use Microsoft Publisher to create a brochure tracing the path blood flows through the body. Working in cooperative groups, seventh graders use creative writing skills to create a "travel" brochure written from the viewpoint of a drop of blood. This would be a great cross-curricular lesson between science and language arts.
In this circulatory system matching worksheet, student determine the phrase that defines the given word. They find matches for words that are associated with the circulatory system such as veins, arteries, and red blood cells.
The Circulatory System: Special Ed Lesson
To better understand the circulatory system, this class gets a visit from the school nurse. She will explain heart rate and how she can hear it using a stethoscope. They will explore both a heart model and one taken from a calf. Next, they will use the model to help them identify the flow and function of each organ part. Finally, they will either create a poster or write a step-by-step procedure for taking a heart rate. There is a lot of great information in this lesson, don't skip it.
Moving to the Beat of the Heart
Second graders read an article about the circulatory system and complete comprehension questions. They determine their resting heart rates, write in science notebooks and develop graphic organizers to record their observations.
The Heart of the Matter
Students study the heart and the circulatory system. They practice taking their pulse. They create a model of blood cells and squeeze tennis balls to demonstrate just how hard the heart muscle works.
Pathway of Life
First graders explore the circulatory system and its functions. They draw and label the parts of the circulatory system on traced body paper cutouts, and walk on a large chalk outline of a body, following the path of the circulatory system.
