Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology (Teacher Guide)
Overview: This Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology Teacher Guide contains materials for use with Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems and The Musculoskeletal System. Materials are organized by book in the following sections:
||7th – 8th grade|
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three to five easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched – materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials needed to in order to best work within your educational program.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of taking open-book tests
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M–F. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
Volume One, The Musculoskeletal System, opens with the building blocks of your body—the cells.
Your body is built from many kinds of cells and tissues, and you will learn how they work. Even the bones and muscles that give you strength and speed depend on many types of cells. This book will:
- Show you the ins and outs of the bones in your skeleton and how they function
- Give detail as to how your marvelous muscles move you
- Provide a detailed glossary in the back for quick reference!
Throughout the book you will learn things to do to keep your body healthy. But in a fallen, cursed world things are bound to go wrong. We will look at what happens when disease or injury affects bones and muscles.
Volume Two, Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems. From the level of the cell to the organs themselves, we will examine these systems in depth. Here you will learn:
- The incredible design of the human heart and how it is really “two pumps in one!”
- How blood moves through an incredible network of arteries and veins
- What “blood pressure” is and the marvelous systems that help regulate it
- How the respiratory system allows us to get the “bad air out “ and the “good air in”
Along the way, we will see what happens when things go wrong. We will also suggest things to do to keep the heart and lungs healthy. Although the world insists that our bodies are merely the result of time and chance, as you examine the human body closely, you will see that it cannot be an accident. It can only be the product of a Master Designer.
