Seventh graders build muscle strength by using elastic bands. In this elastic band exercise lesson, 7th graders do various stretches and movements using an elastic band. Students go to different stations to do different exercises. Students increase heart rate and burn calories.
Fifth graders determine what muscles do and identify the different types. In this muscle lesson, 5th graders discuss what they know about muscles before looking at the book, The Human Body by Jonathan Miller. They take a teacher made assessment. The associated PowerPoint presentation does not open.
Learn all about the best way to stretch your major muscle groups. Nine of the major muscle groups found in the human body are listed along with discussion points on why exercise and stretching are so important to muscle development. Two types of stretches, ballistic and static, are also described.
Students study a muscle journal which includes a front and back picture of the following muscles: triceps, biceps, abdominal muscles, quadriceps, hamstrings. They locate biceps on themselves and on others. Next, they utilize their journal by coloring in the picture of the biceps.
Students participate in muscle math activities to examine both science and math concepts. Students find their heart rate after completing several different physical activities then create a line graph with their data as well as determine their flexibility then make a frequency table and histogram of the class results.
