Human Body Systems — Worksheets

Once a year, we usually learn about one of the human body systems. One year,  we studied the digestive system. We also went into great detail one year about the Skeletal System. And recently, we learned about the circulatory system. We usually start off with an overview of the human body systems.

Human Body Sytems UnitsWe often start with a fun album called the Body Systems Rock (affiliate link). The kids *love* it!!  We borrowed it from the library, but it’s available at Amazon. The first song goes over the body systems in a fun, general way and we used that as a spring-board for talking about all the systems.

One year, I made this matching page of the body systems and we did this page one morning to add to their science notebooks. If you are interested, you can download this matching page (and answer sheet) free by clicking on the link or picture below (on pages 2 and 3). Hope it’s helpful! (See more about the 25+ page Human Body System Packet pages below.)~Liesl

We had two books we used a lot for these units: Human Anatomy Coloring Book (affiliate link) has pages you can print out and color in.

Human-Anatomy-Coloring-BookAnd the The Body Book: Easy-to-Make Hands-on Models That Teach (affiliate link) has really neat models that you can make. We did the joints, bones of the body (see our model here), and some other things, but more about those in those other posts. :)

BodyBook-Hands-on-ActivitiesIf you have kids that are 6-8 years old, you might also want to check out April Chloe Terrazas’s book, Anatomy and Physiology, Part 2 Body Systems. At the moment it has all 5 star ratings over at Amazon! [We loved her book about Cellular Biology as well (that was how the kids learned the function of the organelles!) You can see more about our Cells Unit here.]

Anatomy-Physiology2When the kids were 7, 9 and 11, we did another unit on Human Body Systems again. We had just done unit on the Study of Cells (see more at this post). It seemed only logical to learn more about the cells of the human body. I made the kids some new notebook pages for this portion of our unit about cells, tissues, organs and the body systems.

The kids spent quite a bit of time on how the human body is organized… from cells to tissues, then organs and finally the human body systems.    I go in a lot more detail about these new human body worksheets here: Organization of the Human Body: Cells, Tissues, Organs, Systems .  It has worksheets on cells, organs, tissues (4 main types) and body systems.  If you are interested in those notebooks pages, they are $2.50 (visit the other post for more detailed information or you can purchase these with the link below).

We added a few new worksheets to the human body systems packet recently.  This time, we focused more on the organs in each body system and their organs. Plus, we also added a page on the integumentary/skin system which is the body’s largest organ.  These are included in this packet as well:

After going over the human body systems, we went on to study the digestive system.  Don’t miss our Digestive System Packet with more than a half-dozen hands-on activity ideas, worksheets, lapbook pieces and more. We had a blast with this unit!!

DigestiveSystemPacket-New-and-UpdatedYou also won’t want to miss our Circulatory System Unit!

Circulatory System Worksheets and ActivitiesSo back to our overview of the Human Body Systems:  I mentioned above that the kids really love the catchy song — “Body System Rocks.”    They wrote down some of the lyrics to the song and some of the key organs connected with each body system in the chart below.

immune system — defends our body  skeletal system — all your bones  excretory system — cleans our body of poisons  muscular system — all your muscles  endocrine system is in control of the thyroid glands  digestive system — mouth and stomach  respiratory system — delivers your oxygen  nervous system — is your control center  circulatory system — is your life pump that keeps your blood flowing

This worksheet is part of the Human Body Systems Worksheet Sets ($2.50)

If the album,  Body Systems Rock (affialiate link), is not available at your local library, it is available at Amazon. You can even just download the one song (“Body System Rocks” and/or listen to a preview) for 99 cents. It’s cute and catchy and great for kids ages 4-10.

We also purchased the SmartLab Toys Squishy Human Body (affiliate link). We pulled that out again and the kids had a lot of fun poking and exploring that again! We talked about it in more depth when we delved into our Digestive System Unit.
