Need a simple and adaptable diagram of the human muscular system? Something that puts you in control of which muscles you cover, without appearing elementary? A resource that fulfills its purpose effectively, while maintaining a modern and fun aesthetic?
This handout is an adaptable double-sided diagram
designed to visually represent the major (surface) muscle groups of the human body. Unlike other pre-made muscle diagrams, this handout doesn’t have label lines or word banks, putting YOU in complete control of which muscles will be covered in your class.
The Muscle Groups Diagram can be used for multiple grades and courses, allowing you to decrease your prep time
by utilizing a single handout for more than one class. With its many possible uses, this handout can be adapted to various needs
, and easily fits into pre-existing lesson plans
. Some potential uses
for this handout include (but are not limited to):
- Formative Assessment Probe
- Note Supplement
- Summative Assessment (Quiz or Test)
Additionally, with this product, you don’t need to stress about whether your materials fall in line with the Next Generation Science Standards, as this handout is already NGSS aligned
Furthermore, you can avoid the difficult task of verbally communicating an abstract hierarchal concept; the diagram’s division of individual muscles, combined with students color-coding the muscle groups, provides a clear visual example
of, for instance, how organs work together to form an organ system.
Finally, the unique design of this handout is sleek and modern
, allowing you to introduce or reinforce to students that notes can be aesthetically pleasing
– they don’t have to be boring. Furthermore, the open format allows students to write and draw/color as they please, making the diagram their own, and increasing the likelihood that they will take pride and responsibility in its care and completion.
So, what are you waiting for? Get your kids familiar with their muscular system with this gorgeous diagram!
