(Designed for grade 2)
To identify each of the five major groups of vertebrates, as well as to identify similarities and differences among the groups.
In order for humans to live healthy lives, we rely on our body to function properly. Our bodies are made up of many different systems that work together like gears in a clock. These systems are composed of organs, each of which has its own function. Animals have these organs and systems, too. In this lab, students will review a few of the major body systems and functions of different organs. Then, students will get to explore the major systems in animals and see how they are alike and different from those of our own.
This program meets the following Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and is STEAM compliant:
SC.2.L.14.1: Distinguish human body parts (brain, heart, lungs, stomach, muscles, and skeleton) and their basic functions.
SC.2.N.1.1: Raise questions about the natural world, investigate them in teams through free exploration and systematic observations, and generate appropriate explanations based on those explorations.
HE.2.C.1.5: Recognize the locations and functions of major human organs.
