Skeletal, Muscular, and Integumentary Systems
For this skeletal, muscular, and integumentary system worksheet, 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.
Skin as an Organ
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.
Integumentary System: A System, An Organ, the Biggest!
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 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.
The Integumentary System
Young scholars 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.
Physiology ad Root Words
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.
Decisions Today for a Healthy Tomorrow
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 plan.
What Makes Bones Strong?
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.
The Integumentary and Excretory Systems
Pupils name the different parts of the integumentary and excretory system. In this biology activity, 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.
Skeletal, Muscular, and Integumentary System
In this body systems worksheet, students review tissues, organs, and systems. Then students explore the skeletal and integumentary systems. This worksheet has 1 graphic organizer and 9 fill in the blank questions.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
Eighth graders explore how different body systems work together. In this life science instructional activity, 8th graders research the organs involved and functions of a body system they chose. They share their findings with the class.
In this biology worksheet, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms pertaining to the skin. There are 41 biology terms located in the word search.
Cell Structure and Function
In this cell worksheet, students describe the components that make up the cell and their functions. Students discuss background of cell theory, complete tables, label charts and match functions of cell structures.
Biotechnology: Drug Delivery and Diffusion
Students discover advances in biomedical technology such as transdermal delivery and other non-invasive procedures. In lab activities, they examine how medication is given and how molecules travel, observe electrophoresis, and conduct several experiments in groups. In another activity, students inspect how drugs are delivered through a stent and how catheters and angioplasty balloons are inserted.
Launch Biotechnology into Your Classroom: Drug Delivery and Diffusion
Students distinguish between diffusion and osmosis and describe ways that drugs can be administered. In this diffusion lesson students research career paths and create a presentation to give to the class.
An Introduction to the Bones, Muscles and Skin
Student survey their classmates on three facts they know about the muscular, skeletal and integumentary system. In this life science lesson, 7th graders research an assigned body system and develop a creative presentation of their findings. They share their work in class.
