Overview • Student Expectation • The student is expected to identify the main functions of the systems of the human organism, including the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, excretory, reproductive, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems. • Key Concepts • Key Concept 1: The circulatory system circulates blood through the body, supplies cells with oxygen and nutrients and removes waste products. • Key Concept 2: The respiratory system supplies blood with oxygen in the lungs and removes carbon dioxide. • Key Concept 3: The skeletal system holds organs in place, provides a structural support for the body and its muscles, stores minerals and contains materials to make new blood cells. • Key Concept 4: The muscular system allows the body to move when attached to bone, and allows movement in internal organs such as the heart and intestines. • Key Concept 5: The digestive system converts food into simpler substances for the body to absorb as nutrients. Breakdown of food also provides energy for all body functions. • Fundamental Questions • What is the function of the circulatory system? • What is the function of the respiratory system? • What is the function of the skeletal system? • What is the function of the muscular system?

Teacher Background A resource document which gives teachers relevant and essential background knowledge on the science concept being addressed. • Objectives • Example - 7.12B Identify the main functions of the systems of the human organism, including the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, excretory, reproductive, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems. Supporting Standard • Foundation • Example - The human body is made up of several organ systems that work together as one unit. Each system depends on the others, either directly or indirectly, allowing the body to function normally and maintain homeostasis.
Standards Correlation An alignment chart of all SCOPE components and activities to the Texas College and Career Readiness Standards, Texas English Language Proficiency Standards, Technology TEKS, and other TEKS subjects.

Key Concepts & Fundamental Questions*Print version of the Scope Key Concepts and Fundamental Questions Key Concepts Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills Statement: The student knows that living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. Student Expectation: The student is expected to identify the main functions of the systems of the human organisms, including the circulatory, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, excretory, reproductive, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems. 1. The circulatory system circulates blood through the body, supplies cells with oxygen and nutrients, and removes waste products. 2. The respiratory system supplies blood with oxygen in the lungs and removes carbon dioxide. Fundamental Questions 1. What is the function of the circulatory system? 2. What is the function of the respiratory system? 3. What is the function of the skeletal system?
Engage Demonstration PresentationA pre-made slide presentation to elicit prior knowledge and excite students about learning the topic.
Starters!A set of ideas and activities that teachers can do to further get students interested in the concept. • Body Outline Using long sheets of butcher paper, students trace their bodies onto the butcher paper. As each body system is discussed in class, the student adds the body system name and organs involved onto their butcher paper body. 2. Mime-A-System Call on a student to act out a particular body system (shown only to him/her) in front of the class using no words. The rest of the class guesses the body system. 3. Organ Pointers Teacher calls out a body system to the class. Students respond by pointing to an organ on their body that is related to the body system.
Pre-AssessmentA multiple choice quiz that helps determine what students do and do not know before instruction on the topic.
Teacher GuideA guide that helps the teacher with preparation of the Explore activity; provides facilitation points and black line masters. Explore Description of Activity: In this Explore activity, student groups rotate through 10 stations featuring the human body systems. Students learn the functions and organs of each body system. Alternatively, teachers may wish to use only some of these stations, depending on learning goals and needs. Materials List: Create stations for each body system using the materials listed. Divide students into pairs. Per group indicates materials needed at the station and which can be re-used for each pair. See next two slides…
Setup VideoA live-shot video that shows the teacher exactly how to set up and carry-out the Explore hands-on activity.
Student GuideA guide that helps the student complete the investigation in his or her group and frees the teacher to facilitate the activity. Student JournalA blackline master that allows the student to record data from the investigation and reflect on what he or she has learned.
Exploration E-PortfolioA template that provides the student with an opportunity to design his or her own presentation and upload pictures, videos, and text from the hands-on Explore activity. • Reflection on… • Main Ideas • Science Terms • Did you know? • Upload items of importance
