Your Lymphatic System
In this lymphatic system worksheet, students label the drawing of the lymphatic system including the lymph nodes, thymus, tonsil, and spleen. Then they name the three main functions of the lymphatic system.
The Lymphatic System
Fourteen short-answer questions comprise this worksheet about the lymphatic system. It covers immunity, inflammation, and allergies. This worksheet is designed as a reading guide, but the questions are applicable to any unit on the immune system when covering human body systems.
Circulatory and Respiratory Systems
In this circulatory and respiratory system, middle schoolers answer questions that describe the circulatory, respiratory, and lymphatic system and their functions. Students also fill in the blank about disorders of the given systems.
Respiratory, Circulatory, and Urogenital Systems in the Rat
Here is a lesson plan which describes a lab activity in which a rat is dissected, and its heart is studied. The lesson plan has ample background information about three of the rats internal systems, and excellent lab sheets that support the dissection itself. Perfect for any biology teacher who is looking for a good animal dissection lesson plan for his or her middle schoolers.
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.
Excellent diagrams, labels and summaries make this resource be valuable to your students throughout the topic of circulation. All types of circulation vessels are explained, their structure and function is detailed, and the overall system control mechanisms listed.
A slideshow that covers the all-important details related to basic human circulation. The reasoning for exchange of material methods is presented and then labeled diagrams of the main human transfer systems are shown, along with statements and related facts to increase understanding. The logical and clear presentation will be very useful for your pupils and the PowerPoint can be printed to allow them to fill in the gaps and complete definitions where needed.
Fifth graders inspect the basic functions of the immune system and determine how viruses and bacteria invade the immune system. They also explore what happens to the immune system in outer space.
Autoregulation and Capillary Dynamics
In this autoregulation and capillary dynamics worksheet, students read through notes, label 3 diagrams, complete 5 equations and 45 short answer review questions.
Students analyze how the digestive system works by taking the food we eat and breaking it down for our bodies to use for various reasons. They list the major components of the digestive system and draw a diagram. They explain how astronauts have challenges when it comes to eating in space.
TE Lesson: Fighting Back!
Students examine the roles of the immune system in keeping the body healthy. They see how engineers contribute to this process by creating antibiotics, and vaccinations. They discuss how an astronauts' immune system may be suppressed during a space flight. They complete an activity in which they design a thermometer and complete a temperature conversion chart.
Seeing in 3D: Interpreting Two-Dimensional Diagrams of Three-Dimensional Objects
Students hone in on their skills at reading diagrams. In this dimensional lesson students collect information on the functions of organs then figure out how all the parts work together.
Defense mechanisms, the lymphatic system, antibodies, and allergy are all topics addressed in this immunity worksheet. Although designed as a chapter review for a specific text, it can be used as a unit review for any class in which you teach human body systems.
Stress and the Immune System
Pupils investigate the immune system, and how stress affects the immune system. They participate in a Webquest, explore various websites, answer discussion questions, and locate newspaper articles on ways to stay healthy during the holidays.
Blood and Lymph System
In this health activity, students look up the terms found in the word search based upon the subject of blood and lymphatic system.
Immunity From Diseases
For this immunity worksheet, students review vocabulary associated with how the body defends itself from diseases. This worksheet has 12 matching questions.
Body Systems Unit
Second graders complete a unit of lessons on the body systems. They watch the video, Magic Schoolbus Inside the Human Body, trace their bodies and construct the systems on the tracing, simulate the digestive system, and participate in various demonstrations.
Sex & Reproduction
Students examine animal reproduction by interpreting data and making arguments and then create their own graphs to explore relationships of organ systems. This lesson includes an individual worksheet and a reflective review question for assessment.
For 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.
Advanced Matching - The Organ Systems
What's the difference between the digestive system and the endocrine system? Explore 12 body systems in this anatomy matching activity, for which learners find descriptions corresponding to anatomical terminology. Some of the definitions re incredibly simple, and others are more complex. Consider breaking these up and having pairs of students create posters depicting one of the systems to display around the room!
