In this circulatory system worksheet, students review the functions of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Students label the parts of a human heart on a diagram. This worksheet has 4 short answer, 13 matching, and 9 true or false questions.
In this circulatory system worksheet, students use an internet program to observe the circulatory system and answer short answer questions about it. Students complete 21 short answer questions.
Human Body Series - Immune System
When you work with school children, teaching about immunity and illness prevention is a priority! This approach includes a discussion, kid-friendly online articles, a creative writing assignment, and a quiz on the role of leukocytes and the immune system.
