Human Body Class

Posted by Andrea Simmons on August 17, 2015 at 3:55 PM

We will try to cover major body systems except the reproductive system but the schedule is tentative. I want to make sure we leave time to focus on things the students really enjoy. I will leave a post for each system we cover with ideas for at home projects, book suggestions, or coloring/worksheets. Please especially make note of all items in red.

Week 1:

What is Anatomy and Physiology?

Cells, the building blocks of the body. Take home activity: Edible Cell


Week 2: I need a headshot of each child by this date.

Begin building our human body pictures.

The skeletal system. Take home activity: Check out a chicken bone.


Week 3:

The skeletal system continued.


Week 4:

The muscular system.

Take home activity: Building muscle.


Week 5:

The digestive system

Focus on the mouth, teeth, and tongue.

We may use disclosing tablets this week. Let me know if you would prefer for your student not to do this so I can plan something else.

We will also be testing foods for starch using iodine.


Week 6:

The digestive system continued.


Week 7:

Review


Week 8:

The respiratory system.


Week 9:

The cardiovascular system.


Week 10:

The nervous system.


Week 11:

Focus on the five senses.


Week 12:

The integumentary system.


Week 13:

Review.


Week 14:

What is a disclosing tablet? Melynn will be absent on Week2. I will talk with you about the picture, but if I forget, please remind me.

They color plaque. Dentists use them to teach people how to brush. I thought the kids would get a kick out of it, if I can find them in time. As for the pictures, the kids will be using them to add a head to a human form we will be adding the systems to as we learn about them. We will add the first system week 2 or 3. Melynn can bring her picture when you get back.
