Learners create a model of the digestive system. In this human anatomy activity the students examine features of the digestive system. The learners perform an experiment.
Students explore the human anatomy. In this respiratory system activity, students conduct an experiment to simulate the capacity of human lungs. 
Learners brainstorm as a whole class to generate a list of as many major parts of the human anatomy that either look or sound like they may be Latin as a means for developing prior and common knowledge.
Students examine how genes contribute to hereditary traits using a variety of resources. For this heredity and genes lesson, students read and discuss the assigned portions of Human Anatomy & Physiology by Elaine Marieb before accessing virtual resources at assigned web sites. They write a 5 page essay as an examination.
Pupils read an article on sharks prior to beginning a dissection lab. As part of the lab, students identify differences between the shark anatomy and human anatomy and hypothesize why those differences exist.
Students investigate organs, anatomical planes and transverse sections of the human body using gel people. In this human anatomy lesson plan, students use gel molds, gel and food items to make models of the human body. They create a scanning image of the gel body, they make transverse cuts, and they identify anatomical planes. They answer 6 questions about the organs of the human body, the planes and directions and the transverse cut.
Fifth graders discover how blood moves around the body.  For this circulatory system lesson, 5th graders feel their pulse before and after exercise.  Students count their heart rate. Students use the scientific method to record their experiments.
Students examine the muscular system. In this muscular system instructional activity, students first draw a realistic representation of their leg or arm bones. Students do several activities to attach these bones to "joints" with string to simulate the actual movement of our bodies.  
Students study human anatomy and physiology.
In this word search worksheet, students locate 75 words related to human biology. Words include bone, tissue, tendon, and histology.
In this online interactive human biology crossword puzzle worksheet, students use the 9 clues to find the appropriate answers to complete the word puzzle.
In this word search activity, students locate 33 words related to human biology. Words include fiber, synergists, and stationary.
In this anatomy worksheet, students use their textbook, notes, or Internet to complete required information for 11 different human organ systems.
If the only support you are in search of is lists of vocabulary terms, this presentation may fit the bill. Slides simply list terminology. These categories are included: hierarchy of structural organization, cell functions, cell membrane, cytoplasm, organelles, cell reproduction, and cell cycle stages. There are no diagrams or photos, and no explanation is offered. Use this in an anatomy and physiology course to briefly review general biology concepts before delving into deeper content.
Young scholars investigate the nervous system.  In this anatomy lesson, students identify and define vocabulary related to the nervous system. Young scholars role play the parts of a nervous system and perform an experiment measuring and comparing their right and left hand reaction time.
Students gain an understanding of how systems and organs in the human body work. They create their own fictional account of a trip through the human body, and describe one response the body makes to stimuli.
Students influence the plant life cycle as they take care of plants.In this caring for plants instructional activity, students understand the parts of the plant and their functions in keeping it alive. Students participate in experiments with plants and observe and record the results. Students write a story as if they were plants.
Students record observations and create drawings and models of anatomy using their five senses. They describe the structures of a neuron and analyze each of their functions. They compare and contrast the typical structural features of a general somatic cell to that of the specialized structures of the neuron.
Students identify structures of the brain, and neurons and analyze their functions.  In this nervous system lesson students create drawings and models of anatomy.
Young scholars study bone size, structure and shape. They use various geometrical shapes to make a skeleton and produce a poster depicting the skeletal system and its functions. They arrange the pictures into the five sections, glue on poster paper and color and use magic markers to write facts next to each section.
