Human Body Systems Gallery Walk Ideas

Instructor: Tara Schofield

Tara has a PhD in Marketing & Management

This lesson provides questions that students can answer from three different stations in a human body systems gallery walk. Allow students to explore the main functions of the body and apply the knowledge to their life.

Gallery Walks

Gallery walks are a popular and effective way to engage students in learning new material. Once a topic is selected, multiple stations can be established that provide interesting information, hands-on experiences, or other attention-grabbing exercises for students. While gallery walks can be used for a wide variety of topics, this lesson focuses on creating an effective gallery walk to teach students about human body systems. Use the questions below to encourage students to study body systems individually and in small groups.

General Body System Questions

The general questions are designed to help students get a broad awareness of the body systems and how they work in the body.

  • There are ten different body systems. What are the names of those body systems?
  • How are the systems dependent on each other?
  • How do the systems operate independently of each other?
  • Which system(s) affects all the cells and the functions of the body?
  • One of the body systems is responsible for secreting hormones for metabolism and regulating growth. Which system is it?
  • The kidneys, bladder, urethra, and ureters are vital organs within which of the systems? What is the main function of these organs? How do they work together to keep a person healthy?

Key Body Systems

Once students understand the general body systems, they can focus on the key body systems. The questions below are designed to focus on the main systems and understand their function. The ten main body systems include musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, respiratory, reproductive, nervous, digestive, endocrine, integumentary, and lymphatic. The questions in this section focus on some key body systems: musculoskeletal, nervous, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, and endocrine.
