Human Anatomy and Physiology

Type : Virtual School Program
Grades : 10, 11
Duration : 40 minutes
Price : Recording available for free by request
Language : English only

Explore the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Observe real mammalian organs and learn about the function of cells, tissues and organs in the digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems.

 

Curriculum Connections:

Strand : Biology
B1.2 Assess the importance to human health and/or society of medical imaging technologies used in Canada in diagnosing or treating abnormalities in tissues, organs, and/or systems
B2.1 Use appropriate terminology including but not limited to: capillaries, concentration, red blood cells, regeneration.
B3.3 Explain the links between specialized cells, tissues, organs, and systems in plants and animals
B3.4 Explain the primary functions of a variety of systems in animals
B3.5 Explain the interaction of different systems within an organism and why such interactions are necessary for the organism’s survival
Strand : Anatomy of Mammals
E1.2 Analyse the impact of various lifestyle choices on human health and body systems
E2.1 Use appropriate terminology related to animal anatomy, including, but not limited to: systolic contraction, diastolic pressure, diffusion gradient, inhalation, exhalation, coronary, cardiac, ulcer, asthma, and constipation
E3.1 Describe the anatomy and physiology of the circulatory system including the atrium, ventricles, valves, aorta, pulmonary artery, vena cava, capillaries, veins, arteries, blood cells, and platelets, the mechanisms of blood pressure, and the function of the spleen
E3.2 Describe the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system including the nasal cavity, trachea, larynx, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, and oxygenated and deoxygenated blood) and the mechanisms of gas exchange and respiration
E3.3 Describe the anatomy and physiology of the digestive system, the mechanisms of peristalsis, absorption, and mechanical and chemical digestion, and the function of the kidneys
E3.4 Explain some of the mechanisms of interaction between a mammal’s different body systems
Strand : Animals: Structure and Function
E1.1 Evaluate the importance of various technologies, including Canadian contributions, to our understanding of internal body systems
E2.1 Use appropriate terminology related to animal anatomy, including, but not limited to: systolic, diastolic, diffusion gradient, inhalation, exhalation, coronary, cardiac, ulcer, asthma, and constipation
E3.1 Explain the anatomy of the respiratory system and the process of ventilation and gas exchange from the environment to the cell
E3.2 Explain the anatomy of the digestive system and the importance of digestion in providing nutrients needed for energy and growth
E3.3 Explain the anatomy of the circulatory system and its function in transporting substances that are vital to health
E3.4 Describe some disorders related to the respiratory, digestive, and circulatory systems
