Students discover the major organs in the nervous system, their functions and how they perform in relation to the remainder of the human body. Students work in groups at various learning stations: control muscles and tissue, control organs, control senses, and control thinking. Students complete a brace map on the parts and functions of the nervous system.
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.
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!
Students describe the human body's major systems that work together to regulate the body. Students also examine the effects of stress on the body and discover ways to deal with stress.
Students conduct Internet research to determine how the functions of the human body work together. Students research the following systems and their functions: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, endocrin and nervous, digestive and circulatory, excretory, reproductive, respiratory, immune.After conducting research, students transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
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.
Learners 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.
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!
Young scholars inquire about human anatomy by completing a worksheet. In this body systems lesson, students discuss the importance of a self-regulating body and how the skeletal, muscular, respiratory and digestive system all take care of themselves. Young scholars complete a science worksheet based on anatomy identification and digestion.
Learners research systems of the human body. In this biology lesson plan, students read the book Yucky Story and identify the systems of the human body. Learners create a Powerpoint presentation to demonstrate their knowledge of the content.
Students study toxins. In this biology lesson plan, students identify toxins contained within household products and determine specific affects that toxins may have on the human body.
Students identify the systems of the human body and their functions. They illustrate the systems to investigate where and how they function in the body. Afterward, they layer these systems to comprehend the depth and dimension of the human body.
Students investigate the role of the nervous system in the human body. Students review task cards to determine if certain statements about the role of the human body's nervous systerm are fact or fiction, and then search provided Internet sites to check their answers.
With articles entitled, "What's Puke?" and "What is a Fart?" this digestive system instructional activity is sure to be a gas! Elementary anatomists do a belly dance to illustrate how food moves through the digestive system and then design a board game in which the board is shaped like the organs involved. Several articles and a video are available through the publisher's website to provide information. Note that because the website has been updated since the production of this document, not all of the article and video titles are the same. Don't eliminate it, however! Laughter and learning are sure to be expelled during this session!
Learners explore the major systems and functions of the human body. In this anatomy lesson, students make life-size outlines of bodies, diagram body systems, and present their work to their classmates.
Seventh graders explain how the different human body systems work together. In this biology lesson, 7th graders create a graphic organizer using Inspiration. They complete a webquest on muscular and skeletal systems.
Students research information about the human body. They read books and explore the Internet to gather information about the human body. Students create graphic representations and models of the body systems. Working in groups, they present a final presentation which explains the different systems of the human body.
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the drawing of the anatomy of the human body. They conduct research using a variety of resources and create a drawing on the ground with sidewalk chalk. Students also view models of the body as an aide for the drawing.
In this "Human Body: Pushing the Limits-Sensation" worksheet, students watch the movie and respond to 25 fill in the blank and short answer questions regarding information from the documentary.
Learners explore the concept of the human body. They complete a variety of activities concerning the function of various organs. They listen to their heartbeat with a stethoscope, examine how muscles work during a game of tag, and play a game in which they identify the bones of the body.
