Students create a model of the digestive system. For this human anatomy lesson the students examine features of the digestive system. The students perform an experiment.
Students 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.
Introduce human anatomy to your class, and then assign each group an organ system to research. Referencing books and the Internet, each group collaborates to develop a presentation using at least three different media. Their presentations are shared with the rest of the class so that everyone learns about each organ system. This would be a memorable way to start an anatomy unit with your young biologists.
Young scholars examine the muscular system. In this muscular system lesson, students first draw a realistic representation of their leg or arm bones. Young scholars do several activities to attach these bones to "joints" with string to simulate the actual movement of our bodies.  
In this word search activity, 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.
Students explore the human anatomy. In this respiratory system lesson, students conduct an experiment to simulate the capacity of human lungs. 
In this word search worksheet, students locate 33 words related to human biology. Words include fiber, synergists, and stationary.
In this life cycle workbook, 5th graders examine plant and animal cells, classification of organisms, human biology, photosynthesis, and natural environments. 21 different activities make up the Life Cycle Workbook.
Students taking Human Anatomy and Physiology design a health club. They analyze the structure and function of various muscle groups and determine what exercise equipment works best for each muscle group, and using a desktop publishing program they design and print a brochure or print advertisement for their health club.
In this life cycle workbook, 3rd graders complete several different activities in which they analyze different invertebrates, identify arthropods, examine human biology and plants, and study natural environments. 20 different activities make up this life cycle workbook.
Students examine how genes contribute to hereditary traits using a variety of resources. In 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.
Students research a specific topic on the human anatomy. In this anatomy lesson students are in groups and create a presentation on the organ system they have been assigned.
Students 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.  In 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.
Young scholars study human anatomy and physiology.
Students research biology by reading a science story in class. In this human anatomy lesson, students read the book Body Numbers and identify the number of specific body parts humans typically have. Students answer study questions and define vocabulary terms based on human anatomy.
Consider this online interactive activity as a way to practice the names that often accompany human anatomy, such as the crown of the head and the roof of the mouth. Learners select an anatomy word with a double meaning from a drop-down menu to fill in 13 blanks in a poem about anatomy. Additionally, they type each of these 13 words next to their definitions. This activity is a more about double meaning than human anatomy, and it does provides immediate online feedback about
Students examine the clinical effects of environmental toxicants on living organisms by collecting and analyzing scientific data and identifying ways of detection and diagnosis.
