Body Systems, Structures, and Functions (Developed by SEPUP)

kit #804S

Students learn about major organs and systems in the human body. First, they complete an activity that explores their current knowledge and ideas about the sizes and locations of specific organs. Then, they group Organ and Structure Cards and explore the functions of several human body systems. Next, students create a three-dimensional model of selected body systems. Finally, they color the organ systems on a diagram and test their knowledge of systems and organs as they revisit their earlier ideas.


  • Models are created for exploring and communicating scientific information.
  • Human bodies have systems for digestion, respiration, reproduction, circulation, excretion, movement, control, and coordination.
  • Organs comprise these systems. Living systems demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function.
