In this lesson, we will first discuss what organs are. Then, we will learn about some of the most important organs in our body. We will make sure we know how to label them in our body. Finally, we will learn about organ donation.
Unit Overview: Human anatomy
- Identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement.
- Describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans
- Identify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions
- Describe the changes as humans develop to old age.
For next step we recommend the unit: Diet and lifestyle.
In this lesson, we will learn about the function of our skeleton as well as some of our major bones. We will also learn about different types of joints. Finally, we will discuss the differences between exoskeletons and endoskeletons.
In this lesson, we will learn about the differences between humans and other animals.
