Included in the Bundle:
1. Lesson, Guided Notes & Assessment
This resource contains a PowerPoint lesson with Cornell notes style guided notes and an assessment that all tie together. This resource is excellent for traditional and digital interactive science notebooks. The PowerPoint and guided notes are also included in Google Slides which make this a perfect digital resource for online learning! There is also a self-grading Google Forms assessment. This is a no prep resource!
The PowerPoint Lesson and guided notes are broken up into 4 different parts:
❔ Engage: This is a question that is used to get students thinking and engaged before the lesson begins. They answer the question in their guided notes.
☑ Checkpoints: These are questions throughout the lesson that assess what students are learning as they go through. The student’s answer these questions in their guided notes. Answer key is included in the PowerPoint.
↵ Bringing it Back: This final question wraps up the lesson by tying student’s new knowledge with the engagement piece.
✐Summarize! Students can summarize their learning by writing, drawing or both.
All links for the Google Slides and Google Forms are included in the resource.
The PowerPoint is editable. The titles, images and clip art are not editable.
The Cornell style guided notes follow along with the lesson. This allows the students to go through the lesson with the class as the teacher goes through the slides or they can fill it out independently if they are using the PowerPoint digitally. All the text aside from the title and cover page are editable.
Includes two cover pages for interactive notebook booklets. One in color and one in black and white.
The Google Slides version of the notes includes text boxes for students to add in their own text. A Google Slides “toolbox” is included for students to reference to for changing fonts, adding images, drawings, etc. There are even drag and drop highlighter marks for students to make their notes more interactive.
*There is an included answer key for the guided notes to be easily printed and added to a teacher’s copy of an interactive science notebook.
The assessment contains 20 questions with a mix of vocabulary matching, short answer and multiple choice questions. An answer key is included. Everything is editable except for the title and any included clip art lip art.
A Google Slides version is included as well as a self-grading Google Forms version. The links are included in the resource.
2. Warm Ups
2 weeks of editable warm up slides about levels of organization, human body systems and homeostasis. These could also be used as exit tickets! Digital or print versions are perfect for a human body systems unit in your life science or biology classroom with no prep! Use these as bellringers to get your students ready for the day or end the class with a ticket out the door. Google Slides versions are also included for online learning!
Each question is in short or long response format so students explain the topic and show their understanding.
There are 3 ways to use these editable warm ups/exit tickets:
1. Use them with slides as students fill out the answers on their own personal answer sheet.
2. Use the answer sheets with the questions on them without the slides. I personally have my students hole punch them each week to add into a pronged folder or binder to use as a study tool. You can even print them at 90% so students can glue them into their interactive science notebooks!
3. Use them for online learning or digitally with the Google Slides version. This is also perfect for digital interactive student notebooks.
A PowerPoint version is included for editing and a PDF version is included for easy printing.
*The questions are editable but the fonts and clip art are not due to copyright.*
Included in this resource:
✅ 2 weeks of warm ups/exit tickets (10 total).
✅ 3 editable templates to fit the needs of you and your students
✅ PowerPoint Slides with the questions to project for your students
✅ Answer key
3. Task Cards
These 24 human body systems and homeostasis task cards can be used in a classroom or digitally for distance learning through Google Forms with no prep. They are editable and even self-grading! Perfect for a Life Science or Biology class. They can be easily printed, cut and laminated for use in the classroom with a ready-to-print student answer sheet.
Review vocabulary and key concepts related to the human body systems, homeostasis and levels of organization. The link for Google Forms is available in the resource. An answer key is included in the resource and in Google Forms.
Task cards can be printed 1 per page or 4 per page. The answer sheet can be printed 1 per page or 2 per page to save paper. I typically print 2 per page so they’re perfect for gluing into interactive notebooks.
*Please note that the text is editable in each task card but the titles and clip art are not editable.
4. Stations Activities
Do you need differentiated human body systems activities for your Human Body unit? Perfect for a middle school life science class studying biology. This resource will help you reach and assess your students in a multitude of ways. This resource includes 7 stations with minimal prep involved. There is a printable version, editable PowerPoint version and a Digital Google Slides™ version that will help you save on time and paper!
The 7 types of stations include:
1. Discover – Students will research real-world application of cellular disruptions in the body systems
2. Observe – Students will check their own pulse and measure their rate of breath to answer questions about body system interactions.
3. Experiment – Students will perform an exercise and then relate it to interactions of the muscular system with other systems.
4. Write – Students will explain their answers in 2-3 sentences.
5. Create – Students will create an infographic for their peers about the levels of organization.
6. Sort – Students will sort organs to match the appropriate body system.
7. Quiz – Students will answer a mix of 8 true/false, multiple choice and short answer questions.
*Each station should take students between 8-10 minutes to complete.*
The RESOURCE includes:
- Digital Google Slides™ link to perform stations online.
- Printable version of stations in color and black/white
- Editable PowerPoint version of stations.
5. Google Slides & Print Activities
This is a print and digital interactive science notebook resource that uses Google Slides. There are 11 interactive activities related to the human body systems and homeostasis. The body systems include circulatory system, respiratory system, muscular system, skeletal system, nervous system, excretory system, nervous system, digestive system and reproductive system. These activities are perfect for a Life Science or middle school biology class with no prep! These can be used as online stations, an activity for early finishers, homework or for review in the classroom. Perfect for online or in-person learning!
Students will practice vocabulary skills, make real-world connections, research independently, understand visual representations and review concepts.
The activities include either drag and drop or short answer text. See the preview to get a better idea of how each slide works.
The slides and print version are not editable. An answer key is included in the PDF as well as the Google Slides link.
6. Choice Board
his choice activities menu allows students to choose a Human Body Systems project of their choice. The differentiation of activities provides students with autonomy in their learning and presentation of knowledge. The project will assess knowledge of human body systems, levels of organization and homeostasis.
Included in this resource:
✅ 1 editable choice board with 9 activities to choose from.
✅ 1 editable rubric.
✅ 1 color and 1 black/white version for printing.
✅ Editable PowerPoint file for editing
