Summary

The human body is a complicated machine—from the brain to reproduction to the five senses. In order to understand the human body, it is important to have a basic understanding of its anatomy, physiology, major ailments, and healthy lifestyles. 

Human Body Experiments is closely aligned with the National Science Education Standards and will get students excited about learning. Covering such diverse topics as bone anatomy, stomach structure, respiratory analysis, how kidneys work, and blood flow, this new resource features 20 experiments that help hold middle and high school students' attention while explaining science concepts. In addition, some of the experiments require them to set up and carry out their own open-ended experiments.
