Middle schoolers 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.
Learners explore robotics. They design a simple device that simulates a human arm lifting a mass. Students test the strength of their arm. Learners 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.
Learners 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 learning exercise, 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 activity, students 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.  For 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 plan, they share their creation and discuss its purpose.
Students study the physiology of the human body. For 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. 
Young scholars analyze the movements they can do with their bones, muscles and joints. They explore, have discovery and review knowledge of movement. Students are asked to find their personal space.
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 discover an owl's diet. In this animal science lesson, students observe owl pellets, determining what the owl ate. Students put together the owl's food chain, after determining the animals in the owl's diet.
In this human tissue worksheet, students read about the 4 different tissue types in the body. Students read 4 pages about the types.
For this biology worksheet, 4th graders use a word bank of bone vocabulary to label 15 bones on the human skeleton. They read about how there are more than 200 bones in the human body.
What kinds of physical activity should youngsters do more of? What kind of activities should they do enough of? What kind of activities should they do less of? Studies say that children should be doing about an hour of vigorous activity per day. Help them identify which activities to do more of and which activities to do less of.
