In this biology worksheet, learners examine the internal functions of the human body while considering the factors needed to explain the physiological reactions.
In this biology activity, 9th graders define striated and identify if the muscles of chicken's leg are striated or smooth. Then they determine how the muscles of a chicken leg are attached to the bones. Students also cut muscles away from joint and count the number of bundles they have from the leg.
In this muscles activity, students review the characteristics of the 3 types of muscles: smooth, skeletal, and cardiac. This activity has 7 matching and 4 short answer questions.
Fifth graders draw and describe how a muscle would look under a microscope by dissecting animal muscles. In this anatomy lesson plan, 5th graders study the 3 types of muscles found in the human body, then perform a dissection of an animal in order to identify each one.
Break hearts with this lesson; chicken or sheep hearts, that is! Your class examines the external and internal structure of the heart with a dissection activity. Extremely detailed notes are provided for you to safely guide learners through the exploration. It is highly recommended that you access and teach the previous two lessons that are part of the same unit on the heart and circulation so that pupils are already familiar with the structures they will be looking at. If you cannot purchase class sets of hearts, you could opt to dissect one as a demonstration.
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.
Don't be chicken to try a activity that compares the anatomy of birds to humans. Read the background information so you don't have to wing it when it comes to the anatomy of a chicken. Prepare cooked chicken bones by soaking them in a bleach solution, then guide your young scientists through an exploration of bones and cartilage. Finish the activity with a comparison between chicken and human anatomy to identify the similarities and differences. Note: be sure to allow yourself enough time to prepare the bones at least a day in advance.
After learning about the function of the digestive system, pupils can show what information they've digested! Through seven multiple-choice questions, they tell how long it takes to digest foods, where nutrients are processed, the order of the organs, and more! Use this as a pop-quiz at the end of a lesson or as a class warm-up. Note that the publisher aimed this at high schoolers, but you may find that it is appropriate for younger learners as well.
This is not a lesson, but can be made a part of a lesson in a weight training or conditioning class, or even as part of a team sports workout. This list contains 12 hard core strength training exercises that can be done without any equipment. How to do each exercise is described in great detail. Use this list and work on strengthening those core muscle groups.
Like a fresh canvas, stem cells can turn into almost anything. In a comprehensive instructional activity, high school biologists use clay to build a 3-D model of cell division and the processes that occur during the first 14 days of development. Also included is a detailed graphic organizer for taking notes about the important concepts and vocabulary related to stem cells. The procedure is very clear and easy to follow; your pupils will enjoy getting their hands dirty while learning about how they all came to be. 
Fifth graders discover how to make healthy choices in nutrition. In this nutrition instructional activity, 5th graders research the daily nutrition requirements recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Students keep a food diary for three days and learn how to make healthy choices in creating a balanced diet.
Viewers visit the gym where two kids and a body-building adult are working out. The characters discuss three types of muscles: smooth, cardiac, and skeletal. With middle school humor, colorful animation, and clear information, viewers will strengthen their knowledge of muscles!
A series of diagrams and photographs is a vivid tool for delivering a lesson about blood vessels. Each slide has notes for the lecturer to use to explain each slide. Your young biologists will increase their understanding of the structure and function of arteries, veins, and capillaries. The final slide provides a comparison chart for them to copy and complete as a review of the information absorbed.
Eighth graders explore how different body systems work together. For this life science lesson, 8th graders research the organs involved and functions of a body system they chose. They share their findings with the class.
Students complete a unit on biodiversity and their significance to pharmaceuticals. They
In this biology worksheet, students complete 134 multiple choice and short answer questions in preparation for the biology final exam.
Students discover how the sense of sight helps us recognize each other and explore color, motion and distance.
In this biology worksheet, high schoolers examine the brain center and how it controls the operation of respiration and interacts with the upper respiratory system.
In this biology worksheet, students examine the biochemistry of transmitting signals across the neuron to another receiving dendrite.
Students study how an organism must have an organized system for proper growth and development.  In this investigative lesson students illustrate the function of a cell.
