As I was working through the human body system printables, I realized that I didn’t have a printable to cover the all of the systems as an overview before we jump into each of them separately so I created these human body system worksheets just for that purpose.
I’ll be teaching our grade 3/4 homeschool co-op class this term so thought it would be a great way to start off the class. With these printables, you can use them any way you’d like. I like to stress that each system has a very specific function and that each organ within the system also has a job.
You can go over each of the body system’s functions and depending on the age of the kids, decide what language or terminology would be most appropriate.
Excretory system – eliminates waste
Reproductive system – creates a new baby
Skeletal system – provides support, structure and protects to your body
Digestive system – breaks down food to extract nutrients to help body grow
Muscle system – helps the body move
Circulatory system – blood carries oxygen from the heart to each cell of the body
Nervous system – the brain communicates through a network of nerves and receives messages from your senses and then tells your body how to react
Respiratory system – bring oxygen into your body
Endocrine system – collection of glands that produces hormones that regulates different body functions like growth and metabolism.
Lymphatic system – a network of lymphatic vessels that keeps the bodily fluids in balance and fights infection
