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.
Learners brainstorm a list of potential uses for micro-video technologies. After reading an article, they analyze the development of a new pill-sized camera. In groups, they create a children's book that shows them the various systems of the human body as it would be seen from this pill-sized camera. As a final activity, they share their stories with elementary students.
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 instructional activity!
Fourth graders recognize the parts of the human body and how they work together in the various body systems. In this human body lesson plan, 4th graders examine the six body systems, their parts and functions. Students complete a KWL and read The Magic School Bus inside the Human Body. Students complete charts about the systems using Inspiration graphic organizer software. Students research and present information on the systems.
Students name and describe the major systems that work together as a unity to monitor and regulate the human body as it goes about its business of securing the essential requirements for life. They identify specific human features and/or behaviors that enable people to monitor and maintain a healthy balance in their bodies.
A presentation about the human body is a great way to end your unit on the body system. Sixth graders will use Microsoft Publisher, Prezi, and other video resources to create a presentation showcasing what they know about the major functions and parts of the body system. Tip: This can be modified to the materials and programs you have available. If you do not have access to computers, use a poster board!
