Intended for moderate to severely disabled students, this lesson focuses on building an understanding of human anatomy. A secondary special education class reviews, identifies, and labels parts of the body. Including the internal and external reproductive system. Note: The included handouts are of anatomically correct male and female bodies and may not be appropriate for everybody. Consent may be required prior to engaging in this lesson.
Students investigate the digestive system. For this human anatomy digestive system science lesson, students assemble toilet paper rolls and Ziploc bags according to instructions to represent the digestive system. Students add a banana and observe and discuss the steps of the system as the banana breaks down.
Kids consider how the body functions and moves, how each structure has a specific movement and purpose. They apply that idea as they construct a sculptural piece that moves. For inspiration they look to the work of Alexander Calder, examine his mobiles and then design and create one as a class.
