Students analyze the different physiology of the human body. For 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.
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.
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 lesson that ties science to athletes!
In this biology worksheet, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
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 practice translating biological ideas into graphical representations and explore respiration in the context of an exercise session in this 50 minute activity on aerobic and anaerobic respiration. The activity includes a question sheet for assessment.
In this collaborative project high schoolers 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 discover movement patterns that express information about the basic systems, organs, and processes of the human body.
Teach your exercise enthusiasts to read their pulse rate at the radial artery for 15 seconds and multiply by four to calculate beats per minute. Have them perform a variety of activities, recording their heart rates after one minute of each. Though this is a classic activity to conduct when studying the heart, this particular resource provides extensive background information and a detailed lab sheet that will keep your heart rate in check as you prepare! If you are interested, how the blood is affected by space travel can also be discussed with your class.
This resource would be more appropriately titled, Physiological Responses to Exercise, the subject that is the primary focus of the presentation. Learners are given an overview to the short and long-term effects of exercise, including diagrams and detailed explanations regarding the exact physiological responses occurring in the body. A review of the components of fitness, such as speed and agility, strength, flexibility, etc., as well as the distinction between aerobic and anaerobic fitness, is also included.
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.
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.
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.
Students examine how differences in deep sea fish create different strategies for survival. For this adaptations lesson students complete a lab activity.
High schoolers examine how cell's produce energy and the role that mitochondria plays. In this muscles and mitochondria instructional activity students explore different the ways that cells can affect muscles and how it relates to energy production.
Students 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.
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.
Students 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 learning exercise, students complete activities having to do with laughter yoga including reading, fill in the blanks, true or false, and more. Students complete 6 tasks.
