Learning about Body Systems. Superific Science Book IX. A Good Apple Science Activity Book for Grades 5-8+.
This document offers an explanation and drawings of each of the major systems of the human body and of the five senses. It provides teachers with classroom activities, demonstrations, and experiments which are intended to involve students in the acquisition of knowledge concerning the structure and function of their bodies. The drawings of the body systems can be used as learning guides or (with the answers to the questions removed) as a tool for assessing students' progress. The activities focus on: (1) the skeletal system (including instruction on bones, joints, and fractures); (2) the muscular system; (3) the circulatory system (including discussions of arteries, veins, capillaries, and blood); (4) the respiratory system; (5) the digestive system (containing materials on food and teeth); (6) the excretory system (with particular attention given to diabetes); (7) the nervous system; (8) the senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell; (9) the anatomy of the mouth, nose, and throat; (10) the reproductive system; and (11) the endocrine system. Included are reproducible handouts for many of the activities, along with quizzes and an answer key. (TW)
