The Human Body Systems Reading Articles

These non fiction articles are great to add to your science unit about the human body. With the text suitable for upper elementary, they look at the facts behind six of our human body systems, with new vocabulary highlighted and provocations and inquiry based tasks included. The language aligns with the IB PYP phases 3 and 4 and NGSS. You will find spelling for USA and UK.
This is a small part of my complete science unit of inquiry, Human Body Systems, that delves into the central idea of: The human body’s systems connect and function interdependently. With over 170 pages , it covers a six week study inquiring into the various organs and systems and how we compare to the systems that give life to other organisms. It is filled with transdisciplinary, inquiry based, multi-sensory learning activities and experiments, fully differentiated for grades 3-6. It is a thoroughly engaging and rigorous unit. Take a look here.
We cover circulatory, respiratory, digestive, nervous, immune, integumentary, skeletal and muscular systems.

You may also be interested in my other complete inquiry based units as well. They include:
Revolutions and Revolutionaries Across Time
The American Revolution
Extreme Weather and Global Warming
Adaptations of Living Things
The Earth’s Structure and Landforms
Rocks and Minerals
Those are just a few. Feel free to explore further in my store and on my blog, where you will find many more inquiry based resources and ideas.
Lets keep in touch. You can find me on Instragram @PYP teaching and on PINTEREST.

Enjoy this freebie,
