What educators are saying

This was so much fun! My students particularly loved the misconceptions. They'll even bring them up later when we get to the respective unit.
I used this as part of a pretest in one of my classes. The students had fun trying to figure it out. I will use it again at the end of the course to test what they have learned.

Are you a high-school Anatomy & Physiology teacher? Do you want to review policies and set clear expectations on the first day of school? Do you want to have fun and be a bit goofy? Do you want to teach your students the meaning of Anatomy & Physiology? Do you want to teach your students a little bit about yourself? Do you want to teach content on Day 1? Do you want your students to have a blast and have a chance to bond?

If you answered yes to these questions, this resource is for you!

Please check out the Preview to see a few of the editable PowerPoint slides you will get in this First Day of School resource! (note: these slides are NOT editable in the preview)

What will you get in this resource?

  • 64-Slide Editable PowerPoint (includes instructions for all activities as well as the Myth/Fact Challenge). I also included teacher notes in the "notes" section of most slides to guide you through these activities.
  • Anatomy Challenge Instructions (attempting to label 26 structures on a life-sized human outline)
  • Alternative Anatomy Challenge Worksheet (attempting to label 22 structures on an easy-to-print worksheet)
  • Physiology Challenge Worksheet for up to 20 students (which peer/organ has which physiology?)
  • Physiology Challenge Worksheet for more than 20 students (which peer/organ has which physiology?)
  • Physiology Challenge Labels (the images used on these labels are from the same set that I used in the Myth/Fact section of the PowerPoint... your lesson will be cohesive and professional in appearance)
  • Alternative Physiology Challenge (24-card dominoes game which requires student to match each body structure to its function)
  • Myth or Fact Challenge (students will vote on 23 Anatomy & Physiology statements as you discuss whether they are Myth or Fact)
  • Keys to all resources
