Practice reading comprehension with this human anatomy worksheet, which has learners first examining a 3-paragraph informational passage. The text introduces functions and features of the human heart, and 4 comprehension questions have students recall what they learned, writing it in their own words. Consider requiring full sentences to promote fuller understanding.
Students identify the 4-chambers and major blood vessels of the heart and construct a model of a 4-chamber heart. They sketch their model, identify the chambers/vessels, state the condition of the blood in each chamber/vessel, and sketch the flow of blood through the model.
An incredible series of lessons on the human body is here for you! Young scientists explore various websites, construct a skeleton using macaroni, compare/contrast a frog skeleton to a human skeleton, label the main parts of the human body, and create a clay model heart. Wow! What a lesson!
Assess anatomists' understanding of the structure of the mammalian heart by giving a pretest. Have them visit some websites to further learn about heart anatomy. Then take them into the laboratory to perform a dissection so that they get hands-on experience. There are handouts, background information, detailed procedures, modifications, and extensions all rolled into this resource. Use it to pump up your biology class when studying anatomy or the circulatory system.
Students analyze the different functions of the heart. In this heart healthy instructional activity, students participate in an activity where they compare their heart rates at rest as well as after physical activity. Students research more about the heart's functions, and write a report depicting their research. Students continue to monitor their heart rate over a three-day period, and they construct a double bar graph to represent their findings.
Students explore human anatomy by defining vocabulary terms. In this human heart lesson, students research the components of the respiratory system and complete handouts based on the role of the heart. Students define a list of heart vocabulary terms and graph class heart data.
