Teaching your unit covering the respiratory and muscular systems doesn’t have to be overwhelming or boring. My students love this “slap game” hands on activity and I bet yours will too! Your students will be having fun and learning as they play this fun and challenging card game. The accompanying worksheet allows you to easily check for understanding and add a grade to your gradebook! This engaging activity makes reviewing or introducing the circulatory and skeletal systems easy for you and fun for your students!
Game style activities are a perfect way to engage students! I’ve found that my students really benefit from review games, especially around test time. This lesson is a perfect way to incorporate hands on activities into your classroom and is a great way to engage multiple learning styles.
HOW I’VE USED THE LESSON IN MY CLASSROOM
I use this game as a key component of my body systems unit review. It’s a perfect way to incorporate hands on games into my classroom! I’ve found this lesson will also work as an introduction to the topic of the respiratory and muscular systems. By using the game as an introduction, you can gage prior knowledge of the topic.
Approximately one to two class periods in length (as a point of reference, I teach a 50-minute class). I generally have my students play the game a few times and then complete the worksheet as classwork on day one. As students turn in the completed worksheet I give them the matching worksheet as homework. On day two we’ll play the game a few times again and review the matching worksheet, allowing students to make corrections if needed. I generally complete all the portions of the lesson in two days. If you’re pressed for time one day should be enough for students to enjoy the game with the other portions as homework. Created by Mister Science.
FOR MY FELLOW TEXANS
I use this lesson to support Texas TEKS 7.12B.
However, this lesson would work well in any classroom that covers body systems, or the respiratory and muscular systems.

If you’re currently teaching a middle school unit covering body systems I bet you and your students will love my lesson that includes a respiratory system foldable, cutout, and guide to “Bill Nye the Science Guy: Respiration”
