As I was working through the human body printables, I realized that I didn’t have a printable to cover all of the systems as an overview before we jump into each of them separately so I created these human body systems worksheets for kids 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.

Human Body Systems
Each system in our body has a very specific job to do, there are specific organs in the body that belong to a system that help it function.
These human body system worksheets include all 10 of the human body systems.
Excretory system – eliminates waste
Reproductive system – creates a new baby
Skeletal system – provides support, structure and protects 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 – brings oxygen into your body
Endocrine system – a collection of glands that produces hormones that regulate different body functions like growth and metabolism
Lymphatic system – a network of lymphatic vessels that keeps the bodily fluids in balance and fights infection
For younger kids, you can use the printables as 3 part cards and have your kids match up the images with the corret body system.
For our co-op class, I had older kids so we turned them into a foldable booklet so they could take it home.
I love how colorful these graphics are and they show each of the systems in good detail for young learners without overwhelming them.
I’m also happy with how the skeletal system looks as the skull is not creepy, my daughter was always afraid of the skeleton pictures in our human body books.
