About This Chapter
3rd Grade Science: The Human Body - Chapter Summary
Give your 3rd graders some additional guidance with this chapter as they learn about all of the different parts that make up the human body. Our instructors take a step-by-step approach to this science topic. They have separated the chapter into individual lessons that each address a different part of the body. Colorful visual aids keep younger learners engaged as they review scientific diagrams and drawings of body parts and systems. Each lesson stands on its own, so students can go directly to the lesson they need. Your students can also go through all of the lessons to expand their knowledge.
- Systems of the human body
- The human muscular system
- Functions and parts of the skeletal system
- Diagram of the human brain
- Functions of the nervous system
- Anatomy of the eye
- Parts of the human ear
Who It's For
Kids who need extra help with science will benefit from the lessons in this chapter. There's no faster or easier way to learn about the human body.
- Students who have fallen behind in understanding the functions of bodily systems
- Students who have learning disabilities or need a little extra help learning about the human body
- Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
- Students who have missed class and need to catch up
- Students who need an efficient and convenient way to learn about the human body
- Students who struggle to understand their science teachers
- Students who attend schools without extra science resources
How It Works
- Find lessons in the chapter that cover the human body and system topics your student needs to learn or review.
- Press play to watch the video lesson with your student or read through the text lesson.
- Review the lesson or video transcripts, emphasizing the highlighted vocab words to reinforce learning about the human body.
- Test your student's understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
- Verify your student understands how the body works by completing the 3rd Grade Science: The Human Body chapter exam.
1. Human Body Systems Lesson for Kids
Your body is a complex machine. From your brain to your heart to your stomach to your bones and muscles, all of your body systems are constantly doing very important jobs. Below you will learn about five of your body systems.
2. The Muscular System Lesson for Kids
The muscles of your body make up your muscular system. All muscles create movement, but you have three different types. Learn about your skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles.
3. The Skeletal System Lesson for Kids: Facts & Functions
Your skeletal system is all about your bones. Bones give your body its basic shape, help you move and protect delicate organs. Bones also do weird things, like make blood cells and allow us to hear! Learn fun facts about your skeletal system.
4. Parts of the Skeletal System: Lesson for Kids
Your skeletal system is made up of bones, joints, ligaments and cartilage. Learn about these parts of your skeletal system, and discover why babies have more bones than adults!
5. Nervous System Functions Lesson for Kids
In this lesson, we will discuss the nervous system and its function. You'll learn about the main parts of the nervous system--the central and peripheral nervous systems--and how they function in the body.
6. Human Brain Lesson for Kids: Function & Diagram
Your brain is a bumpy, gray blob. It might not look like much, but it does almost everything for you! In this lesson, we'll learn about the three main parts of your brain and what they do, and you can view diagrams for each.
7. Human Eye Lesson for Kids: Facts & Anatomy
The human eye is composed of many different tissues. In this lesson, we will discuss the tissues that play a significant role in focusing light on the retina. We will follow the light from outside the eye to the retina, through the optic nerve and to the brain.
8. The Parts of the Ears
Your ears are made up of three main parts, the external ear, middle ear, and internal ear. Sound waves move into your external ear causing the eardrum to vibrate, which moves the tiny bones of your middle ear, and then it's on to the internal ear.
