In this activity about the brain and sleep (on page 138 of the PDF), learners measure their resting breathing rates. Learners will discover that breathing frequencies vary amongst individuals.
This activity (on pages 16-23) lets learners measure each other's vital signs—the signs that help doctors understand what's going on in a patient body.
In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon.
In this activity, learners explore the structure of plant leaves. Learners find out what happens when they coat either the top or bottom sides of leaves with petroleum jelly.
Learners will build a lung model to understand how their lungs and diaphragm work to make them breathe.
Using zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha), elodea and an indicator dye, learners study the role of light in photosynthesis.
In this environmental health activity, learners investigate their breathing and pulse rates, and learn how these measurements are affected by physical activity.
Learners draw and cut out shapes of organs from construction paper. Then they attach these organs to the body of one learner to make a life-sized map of all the internal organs.
In this activity (on page 1), learners role play as atoms to explore how atoms can be rearranged to make different materials.
In this activity, learners take on the role of a carbon atom and record which reservoirs in the carbon cycle they visit.
In this activity, learners gain knowledge about how carbon moves through all four of the Earth’s major spheres (biosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and lithosphere), and understand how humans influenc
In this simulation activity, learners act as parts of the circulatory system and discover how it serves as a transport system for food/nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide and waste.
In this game, learners walk through an imaginary Carbon Cycle and explore the ways in which carbon is stored in reservoirs and the processes that transport the carbon atom from one location to another
In this activity (on page 142 of the PDF), learners will compare breathing rates before and after hyperventilation to explore how reduced carbon dioxide levels in the blood lower the need to breathe.
Learners place cut flowers in colored water and observe how the flowers change. The flowers absorb the water through the stem and leaves.
In this activity (page 26 of the PDF), learners make observations, formulate hypotheses and design a controlled experiment, based on the reaction of carbon dioxide with calcium hydroxide.
In this activity, learners will measure their lung capacity by making their own spirometer. Learners will then explore factors that affect the amount of air the lungs can hold.
Learners will determine their respiratory rate and explore the factors that affect breathing rate by filling out and using the Respiratory Chart provided in the lesson.
In this activity, learners act out the flow of blood in the human body! A great way to get learners up and moving while learning about the circulatory system.
In this online activity, learners role-play as medics, treating a patient with missing organs. Learners select different organs, then drag them into the proper location in the patient's body.
