In this biology instructional activity, learners review the functions of the endocrine system and focus upon fourteen distinct parts of the activity.
Students use their imagination to make their body's protective systems go into action, thereby giving an actual experience of what the Endocrine System can do. A teacher guided simulation serves as a springboard for discussion.
Students examine the functions of the endocrine system.  In this body protective systems lesson plan students identify body reactions, define terms and complete an activity.
In this endocrine system instructional activity, students solve 12 clues in a crossword puzzle focusing on the organs and hormones of the endocrine system.
Match fourteen endocrine system vocabulary terms to their definitions. Use this simple, straightforward instructional activity as a quiz during your human body systems unit in your biology curriculum. Answers are included.
Young scholars extend their knowledge of the endocrine system through in depth examination utilizing the technology of video. They play a game where they have to identify a variety of glands once they're given clues.
Learners are divided into a group of hormones and a group of receptors. The hormones have to find their matching receptors, and the pair, once matched, perform a given action. This activity helps students examine the specificity of hormone-receptor interactions within the endocrine system. This instructional activity clearly illustrates how hormones help to "tell" our bodies what to do.
Students study the physiology of the human body. In this biology lesson, students investigate the nervous and endocrine systems. They study how our body digest and use nutrients.
Students describe the functions of nervous and endocrine systems. In this biology lesson, students test their visual acuity. They explain the importance of hormone produced by endocrine glands.
Students identify the parts and function of the endocrine system. In this biology lesson, students draw a man and label the glands of the endocrine system. They present their poster in class.
Infuse your AP biologists with the details of the endocrine system. This six-page worksheet 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.
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. The following 10 slides look at the effect on the body at a cellular level, and the factors in our lifestyle that can cause production changes.
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. As a summary, a Venn diagram will be filled out as a class.
After completing this reading guide, biology bookworms will have thoroughly reviewed the structure and function of the human endocrine system. You can assign this, as intended, for a reading guide, or provide it as a note-taking sheet during your lecture. The formatting is clear and space is available for learners to write out their responses to the questions.
In this endocrine system worksheet, learners define 8 words associated with this human system. They answer 11 short answer questions about the structure and function of the organs and hormones that make up the endocrine system.
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. You may not personally find Mr. Glandman engaging, but preteens probably will! In addition to the video, you will find links to an article, an assessment quiz, a printable labeling activity, and a word find as additional resources. This would make a nice addition to health curriculum or a human body systems unit.
Students discuss the jobs of neurons and nerve cells. For this biology lesson, students study the nervous and endocrine system and what it is used for. They discuss nerve, resting and action potential about neurons.
Fifth graders use an analogy to the mail delivery system to study the workings of the human endocrine system. They discover the interrelationships between the human body systems while comparing them to engineering communicating with astronauts.
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.
In this word puzzle, learners identify fifty words related to the endocrine system in a word puzzle. Examples include endocrine, olfactory system, glands, and secret.
