Modeling the Excretory System
Students model the excretory system. They design an appropriate diet and describe the effects and benefits on body functions. They illustrate the parts and describe the functions of the organs of the excretory system including kidneys, liver, and urinary bladder.
Anatomy- Excretory System
Fourth graders explore, analyze and identify the structures and order the process of the excretory system through a model or a diagram. They assess the names and locations of the organs involved in the excretory process, as well as describe their functions.
It May Be Yucky, But Someone Has To Teach It. . .
Fourth graders study the names and parts of the excretory system in this hands-on activity. They use common items to make a model of the system.
Students investigate the structure and function of the excretory system of the human body. Breathing, sweating, and urinating are explored as important components of the system.
The Integumentary and Excretory Systems
Pupils name the different parts of the integumentary and excretory system. In this biology activity, students explain the function of kidneys in excreting wastes. They identify common problems with these two body systems.
Digestive and Excretory System
Students investigate the digestive system and the excretory system. In this biology lesson, students discuss healthy eating habits, diet and weight. They differentiate between an eating disorder and good eating habits.
Students investigate how kidneys function. They discuss how a dialysis machine works, and conduct an experiment in which they filter different substances through a plastic window screen, various sizes of hardware cloth, and poultry netting to analyze how the excretory system functions.
In this human anatomy worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle with 14 vocabulary terms about the Human Excretory System.
Just Passing Through
Students examine the functions of the kidney and its place in the urinary system. They discuss how astronauts go the bathroom in space, examine labeled diagrams of the urinary system, and draw a large scale drawing of the excretory system with chalk outside and walk through the drawing and explain how the different parts work.
Pupils discuss what happens to the trash in their home. They talk about what would happen if they didn't remove the trash. Students relate their home trash to the excretory system of their bodies. They label a diagram of the urinary system. Pupils model kidney function by creating a filtering system with gravel and a screen.
Physiology ad Root Words
Students investigate the different functions of the body. In this biology lesson, students study the brain, and central nervous system. They define vocabulary words pertaining to the function of the brain and the nervous system.
Encyclopedia Body Systems
Students create a diagram of the human body. In this body systems activity, students create a diagram of all the body systems they have studied using transparencies to layer one system over another.

Students explore the major systems and functions of the human body. In this anatomy lesson, students make life-size outlines of bodies, diagram body systems, and present their work to their classmates.
Why is Excretion Necessary for Life?
High schoolers describe and explain the function of each part of the excretory system. They discuss how the body uses the excretory system and identify diseases of the system.
The Excretory System
In this excretory system worksheet, students describe the functions that the organs of the urinary system perform and what happens when the kidneys do not work properly. Students also name the excretory organs of the body and explain why the skin is considered one.
The Excretory System
In this excretory system worksheet, students read a brief excerpt about water balance and the excretory system. Then they identify what compound birds, insects and reptiles living in dry habitats excrete. Students also describe how kangaroo rats survive on very little water.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
