The Muscular System
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 activity as a review after your lecture on the muscular system.
Higher Ed Science
Protection, Support, and Locomotion
In this skeletal system worksheet, students will read a graphic organizer and complete 1 short answer question about the five functions of the skeleton. Then students will use a graphic organizer about muscle types to fill in a table comparing the smooth, cardiac, and skeletal muscles.
7th - 8th Science
Walk, Run, Jump!
Students participate in a series of timed relay races using their skeletal muscles. They compare the movement of skeletal muscle and relate how engineers help astronauts exercise skeletal muscles in space. They list the three types of muscles and identify each as voluntary or involuntary, explain why exercise is important to maintaining healthy muscles and describe how engineers and our muscles work together as a team.
3rd - 5th Physical Education
Human Body - Strength - Part 2/4
When a hiker gets trapped under a one-and-a-half ton piece of sandstone, he is shockingly able to throw off the slab. Because we normally use only one-third of our muscle fibers at a time, the potential for more is available in emergencies.
10 seconds 9th - 12th Science
In this muscle tissue worksheet, learners match 10 terms with their definitions, answer 12 multiple choice questions, fill in 25 blanks with the appropriate terms and answer 4 questions about topics related to muscle tissue. Students answer questions about muscle contraction, energy sources, types of muscles and type of contractions.
9th - 12th Science
Human Body Series - Bones, Muscles, and Joints
Strengthen understanding of the musculoskeletal system with a structured lesson! Begin with a discussion of bones, joints, and muscles. Have small groups read assigned articles and watch videos to gather information and then write a radio commentary of how the body parts work in a sports action.

Neural Network Signals
Using a simple circuit with the battery representing the brain, future physiologists test to see which solutions conduct electrical "nerve impulses." Enlighten learners with plentiful information on electric signals in the nervous system and the extensions suggested in the teacher's guide.
5th - 10th Science CCSS: Adaptable
What better way to learn about muscle than by dissecting one? Using cow muscle (beef), learners compare bundles of yarn to muscle fibers as they explore each. The supplemental reading about astronauts losing muscle mass in space and what types of tests are being conducted to combat that atrophy adds real-world value to the lesson, as well as a hook to engage kids.
