Support your students’ learning with our handbooks: they’re full of interaction hints and insider intelligence.
The Human Body Handbook is an introduction to the amazing and complicated machines we live in. This guide offers facts, interaction tips, and prompts for conversation as you and your students explore eight of the body's systems:
The Human Body Handbook is available in the app’s dashboard and at tinybop.com in ten languages.
Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS):
K-LS1-1. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
1-LS1-1. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
4-LS1-1. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
4-LS1-2. Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.
5-PS3-1. Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.
MS-LS1-3. Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
MS-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.
