Product Description
This is a three part 2,600 slide truly interactive PowerPoint roadmap with built-in class notes (red slides), built-in hands-on activities with instructions and questions, video and academic links, 2 full review games, 7 page homework or classwork bundle, answer keys, 10 pages of lesson notes with visuals, worksheets, rubrics, and much more. This takes me over two weeks to complete. The anti-tobacco / anti-smoking section is one my favorite lessons of the year. So important!

This PowerPoint begins by showing a pictures of a body and describes how it's much like a factory with materials going in and coming out. Pictures of trucks bringing oxygen and food in, and waste products such as carbon dioxide are being brought out. The circulatory system is then described as a red slide (important and should be recorded in science journal). The three parts of the circulatory system (Heart, Blood Vessels, and Blood) are then addressed in a step by step process with visuals. A picture of the earth leads into the distance / length of the blood vessels and amount of blood pumped in a day / year. Cellular respiration is described and students learn the equation and need to answer a series of challenge questions. A video link takes students to a more difficult version of the lessons learned in class. A reference to the homework is made so students can record in their assignment book the nights homework. The functions of the circulatory system are addressed in a step by step process. A series of slides show how the heart pumps blood to the lungs, then back to the heart, to the body and back again. Colored arrows represent oxygen levels and students learn about the acronym LORD for Left, Oxygenated, Right, Deoxygenated after a description of the heart. Directions are then provided for a heart simulation where the teacher uses chairs or tape on the floor to create chambers of the human heart. Red and blue pieces of paper or chips are placed at a Lung station and body station. Students move through the chambers of the heart and then collect red chips at the lungs and exchange them for blue chips after a trip through the body. A video link to the song Circulation from School House Rock makes the simulation a fun and valuable learning experience. Students then create a step by step drawing of a heart and color code it. Terms are then added one at a time. A very difficult drawing becomes easy. Some of the many references to Form Follows Function are made. A provided sheet has students label the parts of the heart learned. Students are then urged to practice with a partner for an upcoming visual quiz on the PowerPoint to name the parts of the heart. After some practice questions, students name 10 parts of the heart. The first three are from a real image of a heart while 7-10 are from diagrams. After a for fun bonus the answers are revealed. The question is presented one last time before the answers revealed so the teacher can call upon students. A reference to the homework is then made. Several video links are provided. Atherosclerosis is addressed as is hypertension in a series of slides. Arteries, Capillaries and Veins are then described in a step by process with visuals. A really neat musical activity has the students stand at their table and make symbols for arteries, capillaries, and veins to the song YMCA. A link is provided to the music. Students make a Y or V for Vein, and M for random pictures, C for capillaries, and A for arteries. Dancing animated Leprechauns make it all the more unusual and interesting. Directions and expectations are built into the slideshow. Capillaries are addressed in greater detail and blood pressure as well as gas exchange. Varicose veins are also described. Students then learn about the blood and make blood soup. Each group is given a Zip-Lock bag and the four parts of blood represented by Red Hots for RBC's, Marshmallow's for WBC's, Rice Krispies for Platelets, and Corn Syrup and Water for Plasma. Students record the % in the body on the bag. A series of slides teach all about these components of blood through the soup making process. Some video links and review opportunities are provided. Students then learn about blood types and a series of slides describe the dangers associated with incorrect blood transfusions. A series of hidden box games reveal veins, arteries, and capillaries and dancing leprechauns. A link to the YMCA song has many parts of the lesson displayed again in a grand finale musical sequence that reviews the lesson. This is neat PowerPoint that will challenge and excite your students.
