Teaching high school Anatomy and Physiology this year? Looking for a place to start? These detailed and highly visual PowerPoint presentations provide content for every human body system as well as 2 introductory units on cells and tissues.

Please note: This PowerPoint Bundle is also part of my Full Anatomy & Physiology Curriculum.

Addresses NGSS HS-LS1-1, HS-LS1-2, HS-LS1-3, HS-LS1-4, HS-LS1-7.

These fully animated, editable PowerPoint presentations are loaded with colorful, detailed illustrations, real photographs and explanations of the human body systems, their functions, and parts. What a time-saver!

Structures and vocabulary are highlighted for easier comprehension.

Included in this resource:

  • Intro to Anatomy PPT (51 slides)
  • Histology/Tissues PPT (59 slides)
  • Integumentary PPT (30 slides)
  • Skeletal PPT (31 slides)
  • Muscular PPT (24 slides)
  • Nervous PPT (85 slides)
  • Endocrine PPT (28 slides)
  • Cardiovascular PPT (70 slides)
  • Lymphatic & Immune PPT (72 slides)
  • Respiratory PPT (35 slides)
  • Digestive PPT (49 slides)
  • Urinary PPT (18 slides)
  • Reproductive PPT (43 slides)

This resource is designed to fit seamlessly into a high school Anatomy or Advanced Biology curriculum. The text on every PowerPoint slide is editable. Due to copyright restrictions from the clip artists I use, the images on the PowerPoints are not editable. Thanks for your understanding.

**NOTE: These PowerPoints coincide seamlessly with my guided Cornell Notes and my popular Doodle Notes! Your students will love learning in this format.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed, resulting in a net transfer of energy. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding of the inputs and outputs of the process of cellular respiration. Assessment should not include identification of the steps or specific processes involved in cellular respiration.
Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells. Assessment does not include identification of specific cell or tissue types, whole body systems, specific protein structures and functions, or the biochemistry of protein synthesis.
Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms. Assessment does not include specific gene control mechanisms or rote memorization of the steps of mitosis.
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
