Human Body Big Book
Standards-based for grades 5-8 but written at a 3rd-4th grade reading level, this book primarily provides reproducible worksheets – lots of them. An overview section on cells plus seven body systems (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive) are covered. Exercises are based on 1-2 page reading selections. An eighteen-page section of “posters” in the back are full-color illustrations, and “cutaways” of body systems and anatomy. Answers are in the back.
Take your students through a fascinating journey of the Human Body with our 3-book BUNDLE.
Start your journey with Cells, Skeletal & Muscular Systems. Build your own cell by sculpting the different parts. Invent your own alien skeleton using the different bones found in the human body. Next, visit your Senses, Nervous & Respiratory Systems. Learn how the brain interprets things we see with our eyes. Conduct an experiment to see just how much air your lungs can hold. Finally, end your journey with the Circulatory, Digestive & Reproductive Systems. Examine your own heartbeat as you learn how to take your pulse. Build a model of a kidney to see it working in action. Each concept is paired with hands-on activities and experiments. Aligned to the Next Generation State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
