Fifth graders, in groups, research different body systems and create PowerPoint presentations.
Student survey their classmates on three facts they know about the muscular, skeletal and integumentary system. In this life science lesson, 7th graders research an assigned body system and develop a creative presentation of their findings. They share their work in class.
Students identify features of the human body, explore needs of the human body by explaining the importance of good health in relationship to the body, and study functions and care of the human body and its organs.
Students participate in a science lesson that integrates connections between health issues on Earth and how those issues are related to studies conducted on the International Space Station. T
Twelfth graders create an artistic version of a Vetruvian teen. In this anatomy lesson plan, 12th graders design an experiment to test the theory of the ideally proportioned man. They present their findings in class.
Students examine human anatomy by creating a prosthetic limb.  In this medical engineering lesson plan, students view numerous images of prosthetics used in science today and define several medical terms associated with prosthetics.  Students collaborate in groups and create prosthetics from household objects which they critique afterwards.
Middle schoolers conduct Internet research to determine how the functions of the human body work together. Students research the following systems and their functions: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, endocrin and nervous, digestive and circulatory, excretory, reproductive, respiratory, immune.After conducting research, middle schoolers transform what they have learned into a graphic organizer.
Fifth graders discover how blood moves around the body.  In this circulatory system lesson, 5th graders feel their pulse before and after exercise.  Students count their heart rate. Students use the scientific method to record their experiments.
Students create a model of the digestive system. In this human anatomy lesson the students examine features of the digestive system. The students perform an experiment.
Students explain characteristics and functions of observable body parts. They identify major bones in the body, list and locate the major systems of the the body through a series of activities such as chalk outlines, body bingo, and toothpick skeletons.
Students examine how muscles and bones work together.  In this skeletal system lesson students divide into groups and complete a muscle worksheet and an activity.
Students, using the book, Good Night, Gorilla, show how a speech pathologist uses children�s literature during whole class time to teach articulation, receptive, expressive, and written language skills.
Students study the golden ratio approach using rectangles and a pentagram and make connections about proportional relationships. In this ratio relationships lesson plan, students describe ratio relationships as decimals and make comparisons. Students participate in a golden ratio activity in which they measure, record, and compute ratio relationships.
In this drawing a dinosaur worksheet, students observe the skeletal system of a dinosaur and draw a picture showing how they think it looked when roaming the Earth. Students draw 1 picture.
These two pages comprise the anterior view of the human skeleton. There is a list of 30 common bones to label and color. This could be used in health, PE, or even in biology or physiology classes. 
Students are introduced to the anatomy of the human body. Using the different systems of the body, they look at how different artists made a picture out of paper. Individually, they make a cut out of various internal organs or bones. To end the lesson, they share their creation and discuss its purpose.
What's the difference between the digestive system and the endocrine system? Explore 12 body systems in this anatomy matching activity, for which learners find descriptions corresponding to anatomical terminology. Some of the definitions re incredibly simple, and others are more complex. Consider breaking these up and having pairs of students create posters depicting one of the systems to display around the room!
For this biology worksheet, learners describe and name their organ system selected and its major functions. Then they create a diagram of their body system with the major parts and organs labeled. Students also write facts about their body system and parts.
In this human body worksheet, learners will review the characteristics of the body systems: skeletal, circulatory, muscular, digestive, urinary, endocrine, reproductive, lymphatic, and respiratory systems. This worksheet has 12 fill in the blank and 9 short answer questions.
Students identify human muscles and bones from a cardboard skeleton, named "Mr. Skelly." Using dialog balloons as props, the teacher holds up advice from Mr. Skelly, such as noting he drinks milk to keep his bones strong. The lesson also stresses the consequences of poor health with pictures of diseased organs.
