Eleventh graders study the major components of the muscular system.  In this anatomy instructional activity students examine the major muscles of mammals and possible disorders.
In this biology worksheet, 5th graders read about the components and actions of the muscular system. They read about smooth muscles, cardiac muscles, and skeletal muscles before completing a matching activity. They match the names of the parts of the muscular system to their descriptions.
Students investigate the form and function of the human muscular system within the context of wrestling. They compare and contrast the three forms of wrestling, and discover the importance of the muscular system in each style.
Fifth graders investigate the human muscular system within the context of three forms of wrestling. They create a personal wrestling booklet.
Students gain a greater comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the muscular system, the skeletal system and connective tissue by researching joints in the body. They also reflect on the effects of injuries on their joints and learn about new treatment methods. Students familiarize themselves with the muscular and skeletal systems by completing a short quiz, using diagrams of the body.
Students examine the muscular system. In this muscular system instructional activity, students first draw a realistic representation of their leg or arm bones. Students do several activities to attach these bones to "joints" with string to simulate the actual movement of our bodies.  
Fourth graders explore the muscular system of the human body.
Eighth graders identify and label the primary and secondary muscles used to perform an exercise. Students perform an exercise on a weight machine to figure out which muscles are being used. Students illustrate the muscles used by coloring a diagram of the muscular system.
Students explore the human muscular system. In this science lesson, students discuss how engineering is related to the field of bio-mechanics and human movement.
In this muscular system worksheet, students define related terms of the muscular system, they identify types of muscles, they order the events of muscle contraction and given a clue about structures and function of the muscular system they find the proper term and write it in a series of boxes. The circled letters combine to form the final term for the theory of muscle contraction.
Challenge pre-med biology classes with this set of questions on the structure and function of the muscular system. The questions are detailed and require students to employ their critical thinking skills. Compliment your anatomy curriculum by assigning this comprehensive worksheet as a review after your lecture on the muscular system.
Eighth graders explain the functions of various body systems. Using a concept map, 8th graders identify and explain the fuctions of the skeletal, skin, and muscular systems of the body. After completing their concept map, students explain how these systems are related and work in conjunction to give balance to the body.
In this muscular system worksheet, learners list the factors used in naming skeletal muscles. Then they explain how fascicle arrangement in muscles contributes to muscle mechanics. Students also describe the three classes of levers in terms of power vs. speed and effort, load, an fulcrum.
In this muscular system quiz worksheet, students complete an on-line quiz, clicking on questions and matching answers, scoring 1 point for each correct answer. A printed version is available.
In this muscular system worksheet, students complete an on-line quiz, choosing questions and matching answers. Students score 1 point for each correct answer; a printed version is available.
A professionally created set of slides strengthens viewers' knowledge of the muscular system. Some slides display microscope enlargements of muscle fibers and neurons, while others are beautifully detailed graphic images. The difference between voluntary and involuntary muscles is explained. Other concepts that are introduced include tendons and reflexes. For homework, consider having learners log in and view the slides at home. They can take notes, take the quiz, and print out their scores to turn in. Make sure to click See All Related Jams to link to other human body system resources.
In this body systems instructional activity, students will write 1 main idea and 3 details relating to the skeletal and muscular systems. This instructional activity is a graphic organizer.
In this biology worksheet, students color 6 major muscle groups in the human body. They color each group with the colors designated in the directions.
Students explore the relationship between their skeletal and muscular systems, resulting in ability to name and compare types of joints and ability to demonstrate how muscles move bones.
Students investigate the human skeletal system. In this biology lesson, students trace the outline of their body onto butcher paper and fill in the names of the bones. Students use an overhead transparency of the human skeletal system to check their work.
