In this tissue worksheet, students answer 29 questions with multiple parts including matching, labeling, short answer and picture identification. Topics include types of tissues, functions of tissues and structures of tissues.
Complete with teachers' notes for most of the slides, this is a tremendous presentation of the four types of tissues: epithelial, connective, nerve, and muscle. Each is displayed with pertinent vocabulary and photos of microscope slides or color diagrams. Applicable to an introductory anatomy course, this PowerPoint is an excellent enhancement to your lecture.
Seventh graders investigate the strength of the muscular system. They explore voluntary and involuntary muscle movement and discuss the types of muscles: cardiac or heart, skeletal, and smooth. They visit stations to answer questions corresponding to each type of muscle.
Students review body systems and their functions. As a representative of the Duodenum Dynamics Ad Agency, they create a travel brochure for the Anatomy Travel Bureau.
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 learning exercise, students focus upon the function of the pulmonary system and how gases are provided to the cells for cellular respiration.
Students analyze various beverages to determine vitamin C content. Students research diseases resulting from vitamin C deficiencies and identify countries most affected.
Brainstorm the reasons why a healthy heart is important. Using a diagram, label and locate the heart and discuss its function. Practice finding your heartbeat and describe the effects of physical activity on the heart. Also perform an exercise and state the muscles used.
Fifth graders write or dance a simile to show the relationship between two unlike nouns. In this simile and grammar lesson, 5th graders explore dance movements and identify smooth and sharp energy examples. Students review similes and choreograph movements to illustrate the simile. Students participate in simile dances.
Fifth graders choreograph a metaphor dance using a metaphor they created and interpreting it. In this metaphor lesson plan, 5th graders perform smooth and sharp movements.
Students view vinegar eels under a microscope at different magnifications. They use a DigiScope with the camera attachment in place of the eyepiece. Students count the number of thrashing movements in 10 seconds. They repeat this three times and compute the average number of thrashes. Students describe the muscles in the vinegar eels. They create a video of vinegar eel movement.
Students respect and care for classroom environment and materials.They control small hand muscles. Students coordinate eye-hand movement while participating in a creative project.
In this health worksheet, students find the words that describe the aspects of the muscular system. The answers are found at the bottom of the page.
Muscles and the chemicals myosin and actin are described in the sliding filament theory by Paul Andersen using pictures on his Smart Board. Give your young scientists a clear idea of muscle contraction by showing this video.
Basic muscle anatomy is explained by animated kids. Introduce your elementary school class to types of muscle and where they are found in the body. Best for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.
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.
Don't be chicken to try a lesson plan 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.
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.
