How the Body Works - Endocrine Glands
Mr. Glandman will not put your class to sleep as he explains the endocrine system. This simply animated cartoon showcases a leotard-donned super hero as he explains to a responsive audience how glands release hormones and instruct cells in the body to act.
6 mins 3rd - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
AP: Chapter 45: Chemical Regulation & Communication - Hormones and the Endocrine System
Infuse your AP biologists with the details of the endocrine system. This six-page activity queries learners thoroughly about gland structure and hormone function. Ms. Foglia, the author, has not left anything out of this resource, including a comprehensive chart of the major endocrine glands and their associate hormones.
10th - Higher Ed Science
Using Imagery To Introduce the Endocrine System
Students listen with closed eyes to a story that starts in a relaxed tone and ends in a scream. They list the body reactions they experience: fast heart rate, shaking, etc. and hypothesize the reason for the reactions. They explore the endocrine system.
5th - 8th Science
Explain, distinguish, list, and describe the structure and function of the human endocrine system. Medical school hopefuls also diagram how calcium, glucose, and osmotic levels are regulated in the blood. This worksheet is suitable for your AP or college level biology classes as a chapter review.
9th - Higher Ed Science
Endocrine System: Hormones
The many images and labeled diagrams in this PowerPoint will help learners understand different areas of the endocrine system. The slide show starts with information about the absorption of lipid and protein based hormones, and then shows cycles of how hormones affect our body and maintain homeostasis.
9th - 12th Science
Regulating the Internal Environment
This presentation begins with the many problems multicellular organisms which rely on diffusion encounter. There are many diagrams of mammalian organ structures, and they are labelled with their relevant functions. This an excellent PowerPoint to show a class that has a basic understanding of system organization in humans.
11th - 12th Science
Endocrine System and Hormones
Paul Andersen compares your endocrine system to Facebook and your nervous system to Gmail in order to show the differences in response time. He then delves into specifics of your endocrine system, talking about hormones that are water and lipid soluble and where they travel.
14 mins 9th - 12th Science
Endocrine System - Hormones
Use this attractive PowerPoint to introduce all the hormones and their functions to your students. As students view each slide, they should be able to see the relevance of many of the chemicals and their interaction with the human body. Goiter, the female reproductive cycle, metabolism, and temperature are covered on the detailed, labeled slides.
10th - 12th Science
Regulation - Human Nervous and Endocrine Systems
Students explore homeostasis within the nervous and endocrine system with this Smart Board activity. In this biology lesson plan, students will fill in the know and want to know sections of a KWL chart as a class using a Smart Board. The class will then watch a United Streaming video prior to individually filling out the learned part of their KWL chart.
9th - 12th Science
Endocrine And Reproductive Systems
Learners investigate the hormonal levels that are created with the endocrine system and tie it to the act of sexual reproduction. The lesson discusses how the respiratory system is organized as a comparison to the endocrine system which is also complex in nature.
