All systems are GO! Discover human anatomy from the inside out with these see-through illustrated diagrams of the human body.
On the exterior, the human body looks pretty simple: face, skin, and hair. But inside, WOW! So many systems work together to keep us alive and healthy. Pose these questions to students: What questions come to mind when you look in a mirror? Why can we stand up? Where does the blood go? How do muscles work?
Students look at a model of the insides of a human body. Discuss how the systems work together. One way to imagine how the systems are organized inside the body is to show them in layers.
Encourage students to work in small groups to research a selected human system, such as the cardiovascular, muscle, etc. Once research is complete, the group will create an electronic presentation of their findings to share with classmates. Additionally, each team will create an outline of the researched human body system on acetate using Crayola® Washable Window Markers. Encourage students to use the entire acetate sheet in order to have plenty of space to draw. Corrections can be easily made by wiping the color off with a damp paper towel, drying the sheet, and drawing again.
Combine all groups' acetate sheets in a designated order to create a visual pull-apart of the human body. After layering the sheets on top of each other, punch a hole at the top of the group and use a brass paper fastener to hold the layers together. Display in the classroom in an area that affords easy access for students.
