Physiology and The Human Body
Students analyze the different physiology of the human body. In this biology lesson, students identify the different organs and their properties. They study cell differentiation and stem cells as they relate to the Human body.
The Science of Lance Armstrong
Live Strong! High schoolers will discuss some of the reasons behind Lance Armstrong's success in cycling and chart those reasons into four categories: Physiology, Psychology, Equipment, Training/Strategy. They will then choose one sport and research three examples of sports science that an athlete might use and summarize their research in a letter as a coach giving advice to an athlete. Very engaging instructional activity that ties science to athletes!
For this biology worksheet, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
The Physiological Effects of Boxing
In this collaborative project students will work together to research the effects of boxing. They will then present their information to the class and investigate possible injuries that can be sustained during boxing. Extensions: Watch parts of the movie Unforgivable Blackness by Ken Burns.
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.
Respiration in Sammy's Cells
Pupils practice translating biological ideas into graphical representations and explore respiration in the context of an exercise session in this 50 minute lesson on aerobic and anaerobic respiration. The lesson includes a question sheet for assessment.
Aerobics for Kids
Learners discover movement patterns that express information about the basic systems, organs, and processes of the human body.
Junior biologists examine enzyme activity through two lab activities. In the first, they add hydrogen peroxide to a piece of potato, and in the second, they attempt to change the rate of the reaction. They also mix potato juice with acetone and discover its effect on the protein in egg whites. Mostly, this is just a set of activities demonstrating enzyme action, useful for your biology curriculum or physiology class.
Cardiovascular Disease and Fitness: Exploring the Rhythm of Your Pulse
Students explore several examples of cardiovascular diseases. In this anatomy lesson plan, students explain why physical fitness is very important. They count their pulse rate and record them on a data table.
FACS: Exercise Physiologist
Present the exciting career of an exercise physiologist to your teens with a PowerPoint. The slide show explains what this professional does, the education required, the job atmosphere, salary range, and prospects. Finally, viewers will participate in an activity with a partner so that they can experience what an exercise physiologist might do at work. Links to other resources are provided.
Physical Education Bulletin Board/Poster Display
Investigate physical education and sports throughout the years. Third graders view primary source prints and photographs and analyze what they see. Then, they compare different types of physical education programs and sports. The final product is a bulletin board or poster display.
One Tough Worm
Students explain the process of chemosynthesis and its relevance to biological communities. In this investigative lesson students discuss chemosynthetic communities, then in groups they are assigned a species and are to calculate the gas flow across the species gills.
It's a Roughy Life
High schoolers examine how differences in deep sea fish create different strategies for survival. In this adaptations lesson students complete a lab activity.
Muscles and Mitochondria
Students examine how cell's produce energy and the role that mitochondria plays. In this muscles and mitochondria lesson students explore different the ways that cells can affect muscles and how it relates to energy production.
Eating Disorders and Adolescents: Conflict of Self Image
Pupils study the complexities of eating disorders and the underlying factors which may contribute to their onset and development. They explore the various aspects and manifestations of these eating disorders and identify and express their own conflicts of self image.
Pupils examine exercise and how it affects the body. In this exercise lesson students compete an experiment and debate the pros and cons of their experiment.
In this laughter yoga instructional activity, students complete activities having to do with laughter yoga including reading, fill in the blanks, true or false, and more. Students complete 6 tasks.
One Tough Worm
Learners explain the process of chemosynthesis. They are able to explain the relevance of chemosynthesis to biological communities in the vicinity of cold seeps.
Personal Learning Plan
Setting goals, career exploration, and self-awareness are three major components found on the path to college. A wide variety of wonderful teaching tools are provided to help you facilitate an understanding of how simple it can be to plan out an academic career. Planning cards, charts, activity procedures, and web links makes this a handy resource, focused on getting your class ready for college.
New! Heart and Lungs
With a partner, youngsters measure their pulse and breathing rates, both at rest and after running in place for a minute. While this activity is not novel, the lesson plan includes a large-scale classroom graphing activity and other resources that bring in an interdisciplinary aspect.
