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.
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):
61 to 90 Minutes
Materials and Resources:
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)
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.
