Circulatory System Online Unit NGSS MS-LS1-3 and Utah SEEd 7.3.3

Circulatory System and Human Systems for Middle School Science

Middle school students will love this online, paperless unit on the circulatory system.  This resource is completely digital and works great for Google Classroom.  The pages are horizontal and created in Google Slides. Students will love this online unit on the circulatory system. This resource build on the idea of cells and that parts of the cells work together for a purpose.

Circulatory System


Middle School Science Resource

Other Online Resources for Human Systems include the digestive system and respiratory system.
This resource is an online unit on the circulatory system. This Google product provides your students with informational text passages, interactive activities, videos, response pages, and a quiz.  Students will make arguments from evidence and will learn about the organization of the human body: cell-tissue-organ-system. They will learn that the body is made up of cells, which make up tissues, which make up organs. Together, specialized cells, tissue, and organs work together in a system. They will learn what the circulatory system is and all the components of it.  They will learn about blood and the function of different parts of human blood.  They will also label a heart and show the flow of blood through it.  All of this is done online and is completely paperless.  Perfect for Google Classroom. This resource is formatted horizontally to make it easier to use on a device. 
Informational text passages on the circulatory system

Students will take notes in a digital notebook.

The Respiratory System Unit for Middle School

This resource is aligned with
NGSS MS-LS1-3.
Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the conceptual understanding that cells form tissues and tissues form organs specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include the interaction of subsystems within a system and the normal functioning of those systems.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the mechanism of one body system independent of others. Assessment is limited to the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, and nervous systems.]
And
Utah SEEd 7.3.3 Construct an explanation using evidence to explain how body systems have various levels of the organization. Emphasize that cells form tissues, tissues form organs, and organs form systems specialized for particular body functions. Examples could include relationships between the circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, muscular, skeletal, or nervous systems. Specific organ functions will be taught at the high school level. (LS1.A)
Students will complete responses right on the Google slides.
Students will use science and engineering practices of making an argument from evidence.
 
The unit ends with a quiz.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
