1. What are the structure and functions of the skeletal system?
2. What are the structure and functions of the muscular system?
3. What are the types of muscles and give and example and location of each?
4. What are the types of joints and give and example and location of each?
5. How do the muscular and skeletal system work together to allow your body to move?
6. What are diseases, disorders and injuries found in the skeletal and muscular systems?
7. Describe the difference and give an example of voluntary and involuntary muscles.
8. What is bone composed of?  Be specific of the different components, what they are made of and what their function is.

Standards Assessed:

In multicellular organisms, the body is a system of multiple interacting subsystems. These subsystems are groups of cells that work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions. (MS-LS1-3)

Topics Covered:
1. Structures and functions of the Circulatory System - Cover sheet and readings

2. Structures and functions of the Respiratory System - Cover sheet and readings

3. How do the circulatory and respiratory system work together to perform the gas exchange? - Work sheets, constructed responses, interactive links.

4. How do we breathe? - class simulation, worksheets, interactive links

5. How does the blood flow in the heart? - performance assessment, video on blog, worksheet

6. How do molecules of oxygen flow in the respiratory system from the outside air to the alveoli? - reading, questions.
