Looking for an anatomy curriculum that you and your students will love? Look no further! This anatomy curriculum is perfect for a high school Anatomy and Physiology, health, or advanced Biology class and includes everything you need to teach a unit on each system of the body. Labs, doodle notes, activities, printable worksheets, PowerPoints, and full-color labeled diagrams are all included so you can save precious planning time!
During the coronavirus school closings (until June 1, 2020), this curriculum can be used with lesson and lab videos for free on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqDFnDfb06VUZ3CrjfLDAsA/playlists
Addresses NGSS HS-LS1-2 and NGSS HS-LS1-3.
Each system of the body is explained in significant detail, but many files can be customized for the difficulty of your course.
Included in this Anatomy curriculum:
-13 highly visual PowerPoint presentations covering all 11 body systems, as well as Histology and an introduction to Anatomy
-70+ pages of my wildly popular and fun doodle notes that increase student comprehension during lessons
-21 labs and activities including modeling, simulations, explorations, microscope labs, dissections, and cut-and-paste
-22 pages of student review pages or study guides
-12 editable quizzes to monitor student comprehension
-Answer Keys for all resources
FREE BONUS: Fetal Pig Dissection Lab for cumulative review of all body systems
