In this exploring red and white blood cells worksheet, students read facts about blood cells and then read statements to determine which are true. Students answer ten true and false statements.
Students explore how our bodies fight infection. Using a microscope, they observe red blood cells, white blood cells and different bacteria under a microscope.
Seventh graders explain the role of white blood cells in fighting infections. For this life science lesson, 7th graders create flow charts showing the immune response process. They act out and play a game to simulate actions of the immune system.
Ninth graders investigate the functions of white blood cells. They watch and discuss an online movie, conduct Internet research, and complete a worksheet.
When you work with school children, teaching about immunity and illness prevention is a priority! This approach includes a discussion, kid-friendly online articles, a creative writing assignment, and a quiz on the role of leukocytes and the immune system. Though the teacher's guide was published in 2006, the home website has been updated since that time. A video, quiz, and other activities have been added, but the titles on this document may not exactly match the titles on the website. You might want to bookmark the links prior to sending learners to the computer lab in order to maximize time.
In this writing a help wanted advertisement for Leukocytes worksheet, students read examples of help wanted ads and facts about the functions of white blood cells and apply them when writing a help wanted ad with a job description, list of qualifications, and benefits of Leukocytes. Students write one advertisement.
In this blood cells activity, students complete a graphic organizer comparing the 5 different types of white blood cells. Students determine the different ways diseases can be transmitted. This activity has 2 graphic organizers.
A set of slides depicts sick children, an artistic rendition of a white blood cell amongst red blood cells, and a diagram of part of the lymph system to teach youngsters about immunity. Kids will find that it is made up of skin, white blood cells, and lymph nodes. One way to use it would be as a visual aid to your instructional activity on the immune system. Another way would be to give learners the website so that they can explore it at home as part of a flipped classroom.
Fifth graders inspect the basic functions of the immune system and determine how viruses and bacteria invade the immune system. They also explore what happens to the immune system in outer space.
Tne New York Regents High School Examinations are comprehensive and include various styles of questions, includingmultiple choice and the analysis of graphs. This particular version, the 2008 Living Environment exam surveys a variety of topics. Not only do test takers answer questions about populations and habitats, they also show what they know about genetics, cell structure, cell transport, DNA, and protein synthesis.
Students design a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They study the components that make up blood and investigate what happens when the arteries in different scenerios. They work in pairs in order to figure out ways to clean out our clogged arteries.
In this human blood: microviewer instructional activity, students answer questions about blood, red blood cells, white blood cells, phagocytosis, blood type B, fibrin, sickle cells, and infected blood. Students also draw quick sketches of a human blood slide.
Models are an important part of science; they help us see the world on a scale that works for us. In the first of five lessons on HIV, learners make a paper model of the HIV virus that is about 500,000 times larger than the actual virus. In addition to the model, the class discusses viruses as well as scale; it would take nearly two million HIV particles to fill one white blood cell. You may want to introduce the topic by reading aloud the "Portrait of a Killer" essay to set the stage for the lessons to come.
Students investigate the immune system. In this immune system lesson, students explore the immune system through participating in a WebQuest. After completing the WebQuest, students create a video documentary or chart.
In this circulatory systems worksheet, students describe the pathway of blood as it travels through the human body's circulatory system. Students use various resources to fill in the blank about the circulatory system (blood pressure, blood components, and how the heart beats).
For this circulatory system worksheet, students review the organs that are involved with this body system, including their structure and function. Students explore the problems that can occur with the circulatory system. This worksheet has 18 short answer and 41 fill in the blank questions.
In this blood learning exercise, students describe the four functions of blood. Then they write what each part of the human body illustrated does below the picture. Students also complete the table on possible blood types of a receiver and donor of blood.
Students examine the function of the immune system. They read and discuss text, complete a K-W-L chart, sequence photos of white blood cells encountering bacteria, develop an outline, and write an essay.
Students watch a video about the spread and biology of HIV/AIDS. They discuss white blood cell counts and ways the disease is transmitted and ways it cannot be transmitted. They draw a battle between the HIV and the immune system.
This a fantastic, comprehensive video explaining and summarizing all of the types of immune responses and the cells involved. This is a complicated topic with lots of categorization and terms to memorize. It is a fantastic overview of the topic.
