Students collect and graph data and use the internet to research the skeletal muscles.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
A compact notebook of slides, this presentation describes characteristics of three types of muscle. Most of the slides consist simply of bullet-point facts for each type, although a diagram and information on the structure of skeletal muscle are included. This attractive PowerPoint will guide your biology learners as they take notes on your muscle lecture.
In this skeletal system learning exercise, 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.
Skeletal or striated, muscles are shown down to the chemical components. All the fibers that make up a muscle cell are described and animated. Use this to illustrate the parts of skeletal muscles for your anatomy or biology classes.
Students make a model of a major skeletal muscle group. They consider how their life might change if they didn't have, or lack use of, this particular muscle group.
Young scholars 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.
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 worksheet as a review after your lecture on the muscular system.
In this muscles worksheet, learners review the characteristics of the 3 types of muscles: smooth, skeletal, and cardiac. This worksheet has 7 matching and 4 short answer questions.
Previous videos have dealt with the proteins that produce mechanical motion and how nerves stimulate contraction. But this presentation explains on a gross anatomical scale, how skeletal muscle is structured.
Students learn three different types of muscles. By building a model of the arm, they learn its basic anatomy and how muscles function in relationship to bones. They perform an experiment on the relationship between muscle size and muscle fatigue.
In this biology instructional activity, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
For this biology worksheet, students examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
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.
In this biology worksheet, 5th graders read about the components and actions of the muscular system. They read about smooth muscles, cardiac muscles, and skeletal muscles before completing a matching activity. They match the names of the parts of the muscular system to their descriptions.
In this bones and muscles worksheet, students read about joints and muscles, then create an outline of their body on a large sheet of paper and answer related questions about their joints, bones and muscles.
In this muscles worksheet, students describe characteristics of the three types of muscle and the function of each. Then they describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of skeletal muscle. Students also describe the steps that occur in a muscle cell that lead to the sliding filament theory.
Students explore the muscular system to examine the different types of muscles in our bodies and how they work with other body systems. They discover how muscles help us chew food and laugh. Videos are used as part of this lesson.
In this muscular system worksheet, students list the factors used in naming skeletal muscles. Then they explain how fascicle arrangement in muscles contributes to muscle mechanics. Students also describe the three classes of levers in terms of power vs. speed and effort, load, an fulcrum.
