EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE  CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

I wrote this workbook specifically for a horse-mad group of youngsters in a PRU in Shropshire. They loved it and worked ever so hard through it and were fully engaged in the work little realising that they were doing their hated English all the while! I have also used it in a PRU in Essex and it was really well received by girls of the traveller community. They said that it was work that was helpful for their future! I based the learning objectives on those I found for equine studies at the University of Aberystwyth - somewhat simplified but nevertheless correct. Module objectives: • The module will consider the anatomy of equids, with the emphasis being placed on the horse. • This will involve looking at the different organs and structures, their relative positions and their functions. • comparisons with the anatomy of other herbivores will be made, thereby enhancing the understanding of the anatomy of animals in general. Module Content 1. Terminology used in anatomy 2. Evolution of equids pages 3. Bones, Skeletons and Teeth Pages 4. Joints and Ligaments 5. Muscles 6. Digestive tract 7. Respiratory Tract 8. Urogenital System and Reproduction 9. Nervous system 10. Sense Organs and Common Integument 11. Heart and Circulation
