Students will learn using hands-on science activities how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
This comprehensive Middle School NGSS LAB on tissues, organs and body systems is designed to align with the NGSS Middle School MS-LS1-3 standard "Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells".
This engaging resource has 23 pages of hands-on student activities. Just print and teach.
Here's what's included in these Science Stations
Make It - At this station the students must put together the various parts of the digestive system. A completed version is included so that they can check their work.
Read It – Here the students will read an account of the circulatory system and answer the questions on the cards.
Match It – The students see a variety of human organs and body systems. The questions on the cards ask them to match the organ to another body system or to other organs closely associated with it. It's designed to get them thinking.
Describe It – The students will see a variety of tissue types and must closely observe them in order to answer the questions on the cards. This will test their powers of observation.
Illustrate It – The students will draw a diagram of a nerve cell and muscle tissue (photo included). It’s a great way to show how two different systems connect and interact.
This resource is included in the complete NGSS 5E lesson found here.
