Individual Resource Descriptions:

Digestive System - Food Label Activity: Students read about the basics of nutrition and how to read food labels. They'll answer questions on a corresponding worksheet and analyze a variety of food labels. Make it easy on yourself by having students bring in the labels! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Digestive System - Group Choice Projects: FREE BONUS! Let groups decide how they want to demonstrate what they have learned about the digestive system. Included are directions for 3 different activities related to the digestive system - a skit, a detailed drawing, and vacation postcards. Groups of students decide which project they want to do!

Respiratory System - Lung Investigation: Very low prep and uses easy supplies to investigate respiration rate and lung capacity. Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Respiratory System - Review Games: Students review what they've learned about the respiratory system with two fun games - a "cootie catcher" foldable that reviews vocabulary and a chain puzzle that reviews the process of gas exchange in the lungs.

Nervous System - Test Your Brain Investigation: This activity guides students through several different "tests" and activities to learn about the different parts of their brains. It has a very easy supply list - I promise! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Nervous System - Reaction Time Lab: Students read about the dangers of distracted driving and why nerve impulses are not instantaneous. Students will test their own reaction time in distracted and non-distracted conditions. The only supplies you need are rulers! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Circulatory System - Evaluate Heart Disease Risk of Pretend Patients: Students read a brief background about heart disease and how doctors evaluate risk for heart disease. Students are provided a "Heart Disease Risk" chart, and use it to evaluate the risk factor score for 6 pretend patients, and then complete a quick analysis section. Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Circulatory System - Heart Rate Lab: FUN! Students study themselves in this anatomy investigation and even determine their own variable. This is a twist on the usual heart rate activity! And, this is a NO PREP lab! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Circulatory System - Compare Weird Animal Hearts to Human Hearts: Students read an article about 8 of the strangest hearts in the animal kingdom - from a whale with a heart the size of a piano to an octopus that has 3 hearts. Students then complete a worksheet with text-dependent reading comprehension analysis questions. Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Immune System - Top 10 Infectious Diseases Reading & Questions: Students read about the 10 pathogens that cause major infectious diseases in world populations, how they spread, and how they affect the body. Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Excretory System - Make a Model of a Kidney: Students read a simple background about kidneys and how they work, answer some "Check for Understanding" questions, then follow simple instructions to create a model of a kidney. A brief analysis follows.

Integumentary System - Skin Sensitivity Investigation: Students test different areas of the body for sensitivity. The only materials required for this investigation are toothpicks and a thick paper (such as an index card) to tape them to. The student response sheet includes sections for Background, Hypothesis, Materials, a clear Procedure section, two Data Tables, and some simple analysis questions. Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Musculoskeletal System - Muscles and Bones as Simple Machines: Students read an article about how muscles and bones often function as simple machines such as wedges, levers, and pulleys. Then, students answer questions on a corresponding worksheet. No prior knowledge is required! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Endocrine System - Hormones and Health Medical Investigation: Students get to think like a doctor as they evaluate the symptoms of 12 patients. they'll match the patient's symptoms to a hormone chart to find out which hormone may be causing their issues. No prior knowledge is required - this is more of a critical thinking activity! Both a printable PDF and a Google Slides version are included for this activity.

Reproductive System - Gametes and Zygote Activity: Appropriate for middle school! Students create a zygote with the chromosomes of two gametes. This brings home the point that the function of the reproductive system is to make specialized cells for reproduction. Please note that this resource does not include any mention of intercourse.

NGSSMS-LS1-7
Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism. Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process, energy is released. Assessment does not include details of the chemical reactions for photosynthesis or respiration.
NGSSMS-LS1-3
Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells. Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding that cells form tissues and tissues form organs specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include the interaction of subsystems within a system and the normal functioning of those systems. Assessment does not include the mechanism of one body system independent of others. Assessment is limited to the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems.
NGSSMS-LS1-8
Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories. Assessment does not include mechanisms for the transmission of this information.
