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!
Elementary schoolers use the Internet in order to explore topics related to the human body and its systems. An impressive, 15-page lesson plan that should leave your charges with a much better understanding of the human body and how its systems interact with each other. All of the websites necessary to implement the learning activities are present, and the instructions are clearly laid out. Terrific!
Young scholars 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.
High schoolers study the body systems and their functions.  In this human body lesson plan students research the Internet on body systems and write a description of them. 
Middle schoolers investigate how the human body self-regulates to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in the external environment -- a process called homeostasis.
With articles entitled, "What's Puke?" and "What is a Fart?" this digestive system lesson 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!
Students examine the different systems of the human body and how they work independently and cooperatively. They complete sevral online interactive projects designed to reinforce how the systems work alone and together. Students make posters of the various systems displaying how they function.
Elementary schoolers play a respiratory relay toss in order to take in the respiratory system! They also create their own question cards based on several kid-friendly online articles about breathing and the health of the lungs. They use their cards to play a board game, Take a Breath! The templates for the relay and board game cards are included in this document, as well as the game board itself. Be aware that the title for the article, "Looking at Your Lungs" has not been updated on the document even though it has been on the host website. The video has also been updated and is no longer titled, Respiratory System (Movie). Consider bookmarking the URLs to minimize confusion, but don't let it detract you from making use of these terrific resources!
Learners 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, learners transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
How does the absence of gravity affect the human body? The skeletal system, circulatory system, and the sense of balance are all impacted. With a very casual tone, an astronaut explains the changes to these body systems and also an experiment done by neuroscientists on underuse of organs. The video is presented as if you are in a spacecraft viewing each topic within a window. Although it doesn't directly meet science standards, it would be an interesting addition to a unit on space exploration. Follow it with a discussion about why astronauts need to be in top physical condition before embarking on a mission.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Learners research systems of the human body. In this biology lesson, 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.
Learners investigate body systems by participating in a role-play activity. Third, fourth, and fifth graders pretend that they are an organ or system of the human body, and they must write a letter to the body "corporation" discussing their job. They illustrate a picture of the organ or body part they are role-playing. Very creative!
Students analyze the different physiology of the human body. In this biology lesson, students identify the different organs and their properties. They study cell differentiation and stem cells as they relate to the Human body.
Students create a domino course to represent different human body systems. They discover the systems relationship to each other and their functions. They answer questions to complete the lesson.
Students create a list of signs the human body gives during threatening weather conditions. They investigate the causes and conditions of dehydration, overheating, and hypothermia.
