The Human Body Systems – Where to Start?

Students seem to be pretty clued up about their bodies these days, and so it makes total sense to use this to our advantage in the classroom when teaching the human body systems. As is the case with any new unit, extracting prior knowledge is good practice, and sometimes, it’s surprising just how much they know!

This activity is an interactive task for groups of 3-4 students. It’s excellent as a starting point for a unit on organs and systems, or alternatively, it could be used equally well at the end of topic for revision. The task itself can also be altered to focus on one specific body system, or as seen below you can include parts of multiple systems to make it more generalized. You can also make it competitive and offer a prize to the team who correctly completes the challenge the quickest.

Materials you will need:

  • 1 long roll of art or poster paper (big enough that a student can lie on it)
  • 1 master copy of our Skeletal and Organ Systems cutouts (Download Below)

Here are the Human Body System Cutouts for the Project

🔗 HUMAN BONES - Human Body System Project

🔗 HUMAN ORGANS - Human Body System Project

  • Colored Cards
  • Markers, Pens, Colored Pencils, ect...
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Labels of organs and Functions
  • The Worksheets and Resources for the Lesson

Preparation:

  • Print out the master copy of the organs (without their names) on different colored card, g., red for the heart, blue for the lungs, etc. Each group needs their own set of organs. Repeat this Process for the Bones.
  • Cut up the poster paper into pieces big enough that a student can fit on it lying down.

The Human Body Systems Activity:

Students draw an outline of one of their group members (Looks like a Crime Scene). They then cut out the organs and bones, match it with the correct name and function and then place it in the right location and orientation on the body. One side of the paper for the organs and the other side for the bones.

Once students have identified the organs and bones, their functions and correctly placed them on the body, they get it checked before gluing everything down.

Once their poster is complete, students work through a series of questions that they discuss in their groups. Here is a comprehensive list of body facts which you can pick and choose from to create your true/false questions: http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/humanbody.html and https://www.factretriever.com/body-facts.

We also provided some of the Resources below for you to use in class. iTeachly Members can access all the content for the project and the following lesson.

Students must come up with a unanimous answer for each question. Discussing the answers usually, results in some excellent dialogue on this topic.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
