Lesson Plan

Name: Justin Ray

Date: 10/19/16

Age/Grade Level: 7 th Grade

Number of Students: 27

Number of Students with IEP:

Number of Gifted Students: 0

English Language Learners: 0

Unit/Lesson Title: Human Body Systems 3


Lesson Length: 1:15 minutes


Students have previously studied cells and cell organelles.

Introduced to progression from cells to organism

Students have been introduced to the names of the different human body systems.

Students have begun digging in deeper into the Nervous, respiratory, and circulatory systems.

Second block is my low block.


7 students in this block were retained last year


They will be given an extra time, beyond this unit plan, to complete the



Notes will be provided on Google Classroom for them.

Learning Objectives(s)

By the end of this lesson students will be introduced to the digestive, endocrine, excretory systems and will begin adding that knowledge to their culminating activity.

S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.

b. Develop and use a conceptual model of how cells are organized into tissues,

tissues into organs, organs into systems, and systems into organisms

c. Construct an argument that systems of the body (Cardiovascular, Excretory, Digestive, Respiratory, Muscular, Nervous, and Immune) interact with one another to carry out life processes.

Essential Question(s)

How do Body Systems work together to form organisms?

Resources, Media and Technology


Pictures of different body systems

Google Classroom

Bell ringer

Graphic organizer assignment

J. Ray

pg. 1


Students will use for bell ringer

Students can look at pictures of different body systems

Research for human body systems assignment

White paper, color pencils, crayons, markers


Students will begin working on bell ringer in Google Classroom on their chromebooks. (15 minutes)


What are hormones and what is their function?


What is insulin and what is its function?


What are the three types of human waste?


I will be available to answer questions and give direction.

Lesson on major body systems. (40 minutes)

Brief overview of the following body systems:

NOTE: This is an overview lesson to introduce the body systems and expose the students to the content and concepts. Each Body system will be explored in more depth later and individually. The idea here is to help them see the complexity of an organism, the complex relationships of organ systems, and to begin scaffolding information for when we look at these systems later.


Digestive System



Chemical and mechanical digestion





Hydrochloric acid




Gall bladder

Small intestines

Large intestines


Endocrine System


pituitary gland

thyroid gland

parathyroid glands

adrenal glands


ovaries (in females)

testicles (in males)


Excretory System

J. Ray

pg. 2

Solids: feces

Liquids: urine and sweat

Gas: CO 2 (largest amount of waste we produce)

Explain that some organs can be part of multiple body systems

o Example the pancreas works with the endocrine systems and the digestive system

Brief explanation

Continue researching body systems for assignment. (15 minutes)

o Students will begin working on the culminating activity that was assigned on day one of this unit.

Informal Assessment

Bell ringer in google classroom

Assignment for future assessment Human Body Systems Graphic Organizer:

Students are to create a graphic organizer with the following information: Name of system, basic functions, organs, brief description of how it interacts with another body system. This is to be done on white paper ONLY. Each student must turn in their own graphic organizer but you can work together to answer questions and look up information. I will be available to answer questions as well. Also, you have your chromebooks! There is a whole internet of information and pictures that will help you with this assignment.

Systems to cover:

Circulatory System Endocrine System Immune System Lymphatic System Reproductive System Muscular System

Digestive System Excretory System Integumentary System Nervous system Skeletal System

This will be a formal assessment and will be taken up at the end of the week.
