TEKS 7.9 A Muscular System TAKS Objective 2 – The student will demonstrate an understanding of living systems and the environment. The student knows that, at all level of nature, living systems are found within other living systems, each with its own boundary and limits. The student is expected to: (A) interpret the functions of systems in organisms including circulatory, digestive, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, integumentary, skeletal, respiratory, muscular , excretory, and immune; (B) compare the interrelationships of organ systems to each other and to the body as a whole; 11 C The student knows that organisms maintain homeostasis. The student is expected to: (C) analyze the importance of nutrition, environmental conditions, and physical exercise on health TAKS Objective 2 page 1

TEKS 7.9 A For Teacher’s Eyes Only Teacher Background: There are twelve major organ systems in the human body (i.e., circulatory, skeletal, respiratory, excretory, integumentary, nervous, digestive, endocrine, reproductive, immune, lymphatic, and muscular systems). In this TEKS, we will introduce students to the common structures of each system and their basic functions. A brief description of these systems follows: Muscular system – Without the muscular system, our skeletal system would not have the ability to move. The muscular system has three primary functions in the body, produce motion for movement, providing stabilization and generating body heat. Muscles are categorized into three different types, cardiac, smooth, and skeletal. Cardiac meaning pertaining to the heart is the muscle actually found in the heart. The digestive system is the primary location of smooth muscle, which uses involuntary motion like peristalsis. The majority of the muscle found in our body is skeletal muscle. Bones are found attached to these muscles and are used to manipulate and move the body. Student Prior Knowledge Students should be familiar with the components associated with body systems TEKS 6.10 (C) identify how structure complements function at different levels of organization including organs, organ systems, organisms, and populations and the functions of these systems.

TEKS 7.9 A 5 E’s ENGAGE Tennis Ball Muscle Activity – Oxygen Depletion Upon completion of this activity students will experience oxygen depletion to their muscles. This activity will also result in lactic acid build-up in the arm muscles and provide opportunity to make connections between the muscular, circulatory and respiratory systems. 1. Each pair of students is given a tennis ball. 2. Partner A holds the ball in his or her hand. Either hand is OK. 3.
