In this circulatory system learning exercise, 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 learning exercise has 4 short answer, 13 matching, and 9 true or false questions.
Young scholars investigate the circulatory system. In this circulatory system lesson plan, students complete a WebQuest and explore all the areas of the heart. Young scholars determine the functions of different parts of the circulatory system and examine the effects of a healthy diet and exercise.
Seventh graders identify the different components of the circulatory system. In 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.
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.
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.
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 activity between science and language arts.
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.
Learners investigate the human circulatory system by experimenting with hoses. For this human body lesson, students create a system of hoses simulating the circulatory system which they utilize to pass objects through. Learners discuss the successes or failures of their pipe systems with their classmates.
Step-by-step instructions for fetal pig dissection and viewing of the circulatory system is given in this exercise. Your young biologists match the names to the organs or label a diagram of the pig circulatory system. This resource is comprehensive, but will need to be formatted to fit neatly onto paper for printing.
