Title: The Integumentary System
This lesson centers around a slideshow presentation that introduces students to an overview of human histology and provides images of each tissue type. Students are directed to a website to continue their integumentary study.
Content Standard(s):
SC(9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective4. Classify tissues as connective, muscular, nervous, or epithelial.
SC(9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective5. Identify anatomical structures and functions of the integumentary system.
TC2(9-12) Computer Applications9. Practice ethical and legal use of technology systems and digital content.
TC2(9-12) Computer Applications11. Critique digital content for validity, accuracy, bias, currency, and relevance.
Local/National Standards:  
Primary Learning Objective(s): Students will identify the major types of tissues. Students will identify the characteristics of each tissue type. Students will recognize diagrams and micrographs of cells in each tissue type.
Additional Learning Objective(s):  
Approximate Duration of the Lesson: 61 to 90 Minutes
Materials and Equipment:
Slides of various tissue types, microscope
Technology Resources Needed:
Computer with Internet access, PowerPoint software, LCD projector and screen or other computer projection system, PowerPoint presentation "The Integumentary System" (attached)
1.)Write these opening "Bellringer" questions on the board for students to answer as class begins: 1. What is the main purpose of your skin? 2. List five possible ways to care for your skin.

2.)Have student volunteers read their answers to the questions. Discuss the student responses to the "Bellringer" questions with the class.

3.)View the slideshow presentation, "The Integumentary System" (attached). Instruct students to take notes. (Copies of notes can be provided for students requiring accommodations.)

4.)Complete the lesson by participating in the Additional Online Activities listed on the last slide of the presentation. Other comparable activities can be substituted at the teacher's discretion.

5.)Conduct a lab practicum using various prepared tissue slides which requires students to identify the tissue type featured at each station. Have students write a descriptive paragraph for each tissue included in the lab.

Assessment Strategies:
Conduct a lab practicum using various prepared tissue slides which requires students to identify the tissue type featured at each station. Have students write a descriptive paragraph for each tissue included in the lab. A teacher-made written test may also be administered.
Students may label or color diagrams of skin layers and tissue types or make drawings of each.
Each area below is a direct link to general teaching strategies/classroom accommodations for students with identified learning and/or behavior problems such as: reading or math performance below grade level; test or classroom assignments/quizzes at a failing level; failure to complete assignments independently; difficulty with short-term memory, abstract concepts, staying on task, or following directions; poor peer interaction or temper tantrums, and other learning or behavior problems.
