Four pages of questions review the ins and outs of the integumentary system. Biology learners list the functions of the skin, label epithelial cells and connective tissue on diagrams, explain pigments, and answer questions about hair and nails.
This document acts as a scrollable presentation, 57 slides long, on the integumentary system. It begins by differentiating the three types of tissue, then explains specialized cells and closely examines the layers of the epidermis and dermis. This richly detailed presentation is a must-have for your advanced placement biologists or college courses.
Students are introduced to human skin as an organ of the body with many roles, functions and interactions with other organs. They investigate the integumentary system in groups and complete a worksheet with their findings.
Students study the different properties of the three major systems of the body. In this biology lesson, students investigate the physiology of the skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems. They further divide those systems into deeper categories.
It is only six short slides, but an acceptable outline of the integumentary system. General facts about the system, layers, sublayers, and functions are listed as bullet-points. What would make this presentation more engaging for your human anatomy learners would be to add visuals such as photographs or diagrams. 
In this skeletal, muscular, and integumentary system activity, students answer questions that describe the skeletal system and its functions. Students answer a variety of formatted questions about the muscular and integumentary system and their function.
In this integumentary system worksheet, 9th graders list the two major layers of the skin and name the type of tissue composing each layer. Then they describe the structure and function of the hypodermis. Students also list three types of skin cancer and the characteristics for each.
Have your young biologists consider body organization and homeostasis by answering the thirteen questions on this instructional activity. Unfortunately, not all biology textbooks cover these two topics within the same chapter, so you may not be able to use this as a reading guide. You most likely teach homeostasis when you teach body organization, making this resource useful as a note-taking guide or review.
Students identify major types of tissues after watching a slideshow presentation. They identify the characteristics of each tissue type and recognize diagrams and micrographs of celss in each tissue type.
In this nervous system worksheet, students list the levels of organization in a multicellular organism. Students match the organ system with its function. Students answer a variety of questions using their knowledge of the nervous system.
Students investigate the different functions of the body. In this biology lesson, students study the brain, and central nervous system. They define vocabulary words pertaining to the function of the brain and the nervous system.
Students explore a variety of factors that affect the health of the bone, muscle, and skin systems. Healthy lifestyle recommendations which include behaviors over which we have control are explored in this lesson.
Students explore the function of bone, muscle, and skin. Pasta and rubber bands are used to model how minerals and collagen contribute to bone strength. The effects of the reduction of these substances are explored in chicken bones.
Students study the physiology of the human body. In this biology lesson, students investigate the nervous and endocrine systems. They study how our body digest and use nutrients.
This document can be used as a slide show to introduce your human body systems class to the integumentary system, also know as skin. Topics outlined include the roles of skin, details about its its layers, and color (cause and distribution). There are also pages on hair nails, follicles, glands, acne, and several skin diseases. Be aware that some of the photographs of people with the skin conditions can be disturbing. Note that there are no teacher's notes for the slides, so you will want to go through them first to prepare your lecture notes.
Students name the different parts of the integumentary and excretory system. In this biology lesson, students explain the function of kidneys in excreting wastes. They identify common problems with these two body systems.
In this biology worksheet, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms pertaining to integumentary system of the body. There are 27 biology terms located in the word search.
In this body systems instructional activity, students review tissues, organs, and systems. Then students explore the skeletal and integumentary systems. This instructional activity has 1 graphic organizer and 9 fill in the blank questions.
Take an elevator down under the surface of the skin! Animations show that new skin cells are formed and the old ones are shed in the epidermis, how melanin provides color and nerves and blood vessels reside in the dermis, and what the roles of the skin are. Even sweat glands are explained. It'll be no sweat for you to teach a lesson on skin using the resources that accompany this clever clip!
Beauty is only skin deep, but knowledge goes deeper with this brief presentation! Three of the five slides are photos of a hand touching an object, one is a colorful graphic display of the epidermis and dermis, while another may be an actual cross-section with nerve cell graphics superimposed. All of them display captions that together explain the basics of this touchy subject. Though the show is short, it is informative, and would put a finishing touch on your introduction to the sense of touch.
