SC.6.L.14.5 (DOS Level 3) Identify and investigate the general functions of the major systems of the human body (digestive, respiratory, circulatory, reproductive, excretory, immune, nervous, and musculo-skeletal) and describe ways these systems interact with each other to maintain homeostasis.

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will: • identify the major systems of the human body, including:

 Digestive

 Respiratory

 Circulatory

Reproductive

 Excretory

 Immune

 Nervous

Musculoskeletal (NOT muscular and skeletal separately)

• describe the general functions of the major systems of the human body • describe ways that the major systems of the human body interact to maintain homeostasis, such as: 

maintain constant temperature – i.e. sweating while running

response to stimuli – i.e. pull back after touching a hot surface

Classroom Activities

Dear students,

As you know, these are unique times we are living in. I miss seeing your faces and talking science with each and every one of you. I am hoping we can re-connect online using Edmodo to share ideas and chat about how everything is going with you and your family.  

Our class will be moving to digital learning beginning 3/30/20.  Paper packets will be distributed to those who need them each Monday beginning 3/30/20.  To access digital materials, please have sign in using the Edmodo code below:  I am available for office hours each day via remind or email:   robertsont@ivyhawnschool.org. You can also message me on Edmodo!
