For this heart anatomy worksheet, students study the diagram of the heart and write in the terms to complete the diagram: aortic valve, multi valve, pulmonary valve, left ventricle, right ventricle, aorta, pulmonary artery, right atrium, muscle wall of heart, tricuspid valve, and left atrium.
Assess anatomists' understanding of the structure of the mammalian heart by giving a pretest. Have them visit some websites to further learn about heart anatomy. Then take them into the laboratory to perform a dissection so that they get hands-on experience. There are handouts, background information, detailed procedures, modifications, and extensions all rolled into this resource. Use it to pump up your biology class when studying anatomy or the circulatory system.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
Students discuss health. In this healthy heart lesson, students discover the functions of veins and arteries and what a healthy heart sounds like. They discuss as a class the different parts of the heart and get a chance to listen to a partners heart through a stethoscope. This lesson includes a resource link and worksheets that go along with this activity.
Click on this link and find two animated graphics of the pumping human heart. The path of blood-flow is listed in steps. The connection to the "teacher lesson plan information" does not work, but there are other links to superb resources on this page. Create a reading comprehension worksheet and have your young biologists visit this website as homework. This is a valuable resource to use when working on the human body system or organs.
Step-by-step instructions for fetal pig dissection and viewing of the circulatory system is given in this exercise. Your young biologists match the names to the organs or label a diagram of the pig circulatory system. This resource is comprehensive, but will need to be formatted to fit neatly onto paper for printing.
Students name the vessels and parts of the heart. They trace the path of blood through the heart. Students examine the function of the circulatory system. They recognize the differences between a hear when the body is at rest opposed to one in which the body has been involved in exercise.
