Build a Prosthetic Device
Seventh graders become familiar with biomedical engineering. In this prosthetic device lesson, 7th graders consider the needs of a prosthetic device to help a specific person's characteristics. Students build a prosthetic device.
Human Anatomy- How Do We Move?
Students explore the human anatomy. In this respiratory system lesson, students conduct an experiment to simulate the capacity of human lungs.
The Nervous System
Students investigate the nervous system. In this anatomy lesson, students identify and define vocabulary related to the nervous system. Students role play the parts of a nervous system and perform an experiment measuring and comparing their right and left hand reaction time.
Students examine a variety of injuries that can happen to the human body and discover the process of maintaining healthy bones. After discussing the process of bone repair following a break, they draw the process in cartoon style and incorporate new vocabulary words.
