Organ systems teaching resources

Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students aged 11 to 16 to think hard about organs (GCSE and Key Stage 3)

How many organs and bones from the skeleton can your students name when looking at this MRI scan of a human? Does it show a male or a female? How old are they? This would serve as an excellent introduction to organs and organ systems. It is also a useful way to assess prior knowledge. Spend time helping students understand the functional and structural relationship between organelle, cell, tissue, organ and organ system.
