Learners perform activities to explore how their arm works and what muscles are involved. They view animated comparisons of human and robotic arms. Students create a model of the human arm.
Students calculate the distance, speed and force of an object. In this algebra lesson, students relate math and science as they ask a good questions and test their hypotheses. They related concepts of math to the real world.
Students identify bones off a skeleton during quizzes; assemble disarticulated skeletons; bird, frog and rat. They dissect frogs, remove the muscle tissue, and identify of bones.
Students examine how the movements of bones are dependent on the interaction of pairs of muscles. They design and construct a prototype of an artificial limb using a syringe system, and determine whether water or air makes the appendage more efficient.
Students explore robotics. They design a simple device that simulates a human arm lifting a mass. Students test the strength of their arm. Students discuss artificial intelligence.
When young physicists study light, they will need to explore refraction, fiber optics, and birefringence. Within this resource are the background information and activity instructions for exploring all of these phenomena. Use all of the included material for a well-rounded unit on the behavior of light, or choose one of the many activities to support your own curriuclum.
Students build anatomically correct dragonflies of polymer clay, use vocabulary for body parts, and define the function of the body parts as adaptations for survival.
Students investigate taxonomy. They explore some of the commercial marine species caught in Magdalena Bay and develop a classification system for presented animals.
In this biology worksheet, students are introduced to body fluids and where they are located in the anatomy of the body and their unique functions.
In this math, science, and physical education worksheet, learners brainstorm and study about the muscles that are used while participating in different Olympic sports. They color the muscle groups of the body by follow the directions given on the sheet. They make a table that lists the muscles that are used while participating in these sports.
Students study the dietary guidelines and what they do.  In this healthy eating lesson students study nutrition labels and calorie needs.
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.
Students are introduced to the anatomy of the human body. Using the different systems of the body, they look at how different artists made a picture out of paper. Individually, they make a cut out of various internal organs or bones. To end the lesson, they share their creation and discuss its purpose.
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.
DinoWorks is a paleontolgy kit that you can order from This resource has directions that come with it. Primary paleontolgists examine bone replicas of the Velociraptor, Tyrannosaurus, and Triceratops that you prepare ahead of time. If you cannot purchase the kit, you still might find the background information included for each of the dinosaurs useful when you are teaching about fossils. 
Seventh graders investigate the structure and function of body systems and their inter-relationships. They draw and label the major body systems, observe demonstrations of various body systems, define key vocabulary terms, and compare and contrast the various systems.
Seventh graders demonstrate the processes of science by posing questions and investigating phenomena through language, methods and instruments of science. They study the body features or systems of several animals.
Students identify some of the different species of crabs and tell how they adapt themselves to their environment. They discuss the evolution and stages of development of the crabs. They identify the Phylum Arthropoda and the Class Crustacea.
Students have to get creative to finish this learning exercise. Students are presented with a set of 26 clues, each clue must be answered using the stated letter of the alphabet. Great for early finishers or as a team building activity.
Pupils discover an owl's diet. In this animal science lesson, students observe owl pellets, determining what the owl ate. Pupils put together the owl's food chain, after determining the animals in the owl's diet.
