Teeth and Eating Finding out how you move and grow. Can you label the human skeleton? When you've finished move onto the animal skeletons. Do you know which groups living things belong to? Look at the plants and animals as they go past. Can you drag them into the correct groups? Magnets have north poles and south poles. What does a year look like in space? The application consists of two sorting activities and one writing frame to support work towards the end of the unit. Solid, liquid and gas are called the three states of matter. Materials have different properties that make them useful for different jobs. Pupils can research information about teeth types, tooth structure and tooth decay. Use an information panel where pupils can research details about food groups and a balanced plate approach to a healthy diet.Balanced Plate lesson outline An information panel to explains the terms used in, and concepts behind, food chains. Find out why shadows change angle and size throughout the day.

Holistic Living Ask An MD BMI (body mass index) A graph of body mass index as a function of body mass and body height is shown above. The dashed lines represent subdivisions within a major class. For instance the "Underweight" classification is further divided into "severe", "moderate", and "mild" subclasses.[1] The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a measure for human body shape based on an individual's mass and height. Devised between 1830 and 1850 by the Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet during the course of developing "social physics",[2] it is defined as the individual's body mass divided by the square of their height – with the value universally being given in units of kg/m2. † The factor for United States customary units is more precisely 703.06957964, but that level of precision is not meaningful for this calculation. The BMI is used in a wide variety of contexts as a simple method to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. Usage[edit]

BVI (body volume index) The Body Volume Index (BVI) is a new measurement for obesity, proposed as an alternative to the Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is based on a measurement of total mass, irrespective of the location of the mass, but BVI looks at the relationship between mass and volume distribution (i.e. where different body mass is located on the body). People of different age, gender or ethnicity will have different body shapes and recent studies have highlighted the limitations of BMI as an indicator of individual health risk.[1][2] BVI as an application for body shape and obesity measurement[edit] The Body Volume Index (BVI) was originally devised in February 2000 as a new, modern-day measurement for measuring obesity; an alternative to the Body Mass Index (BMI) which was originally conceived between 1830 and 1850. BVI is an application[3] that can be used on a 3D Full Body Scanner to determine individual health risk, whether the scanning hardware uses visible light optical information or otherwise.

From the moment it begins beating until the moment it stops, the human heart works tirelessly. In an average lifetime*, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times, without ever pausing to rest. Like a pumping machine, the heart provides the power needed for life. This life-sustaining power has, throughout time, caused an air of mystery to surround the heart. Explore the heart. Soon, your fascination and curiosity may lead to understanding and respect. To learn even more about the heart, try taking a look at some recommended resource materials, enrichment activities, and a brief glossary.

Health Status Health Risk Assessments and Health Calculators Human anatomy "Physiologies" redirects here. For other uses, see Physiology. The study of the human body involves anatomy and physiology. The human body can show anatomical non-pathological anomalies known as variations which need to be able to be recognised. Physiology focuses on the systems and their organs of the human body and their functions. Many systems and mechanisms interact in order to maintain homeostasis. Structure[edit] The human body has several body cavities the largest of which is the abdominopelvic cavity. Composition[edit] The main elements that compose the human body are shown from most abundant to least abundant. The average adult body contains between 5 and 5½ litres of blood and approximately 10 litres of interstitial fluid. The composition of the human body can be referred to in terms of its water content, elements content, tissue types or material types. The proportions of the elements of the body can be referred to in terms of the main elements, minor ones and trace elements.
