This lesson has been written for upper KS 2.
The crux of the lesson is to find out as a class how water and nutrients are transported in the body to where they are needed.
Also to gain an understanding of how blood has a function on the body and the role within the body; as well as understanding what the body’s circulatory system is responsible for and how it transports materials throughout the entire body. Discussions can also be generated on possible illnesses that are caused if the body doesn’t function adequately.
Opportunities to invite st. Johns ambulance to offer talks to pupils can be arranged. (see website in web site links) Other First aid lesson plans can be found on this site.
This lesson offers a good understanding on why water is vital to us humans, and how nutrients are transported around the body from the water we drink.
Look out for the advanced water transportation lesson in the coming week.
This lesson would be ideal to be taught over several days.
