The human body is a complex and amazing machine. The brain is like the human body’s computer, containing billions of nerve cells that carry signals to and from different parts of the body through the central nervous system, yet weighing less than a bag of sugar. The heart is the body’s pumping system, pushing blood all around the body. Yet the heart is surprisingly small, the average adult heart being about the size of a clenched fist and weighing about 310 grams (11 ounces). And then there are the lungs, the kidneys, the liver and the skeleton, to name but a few of the body’s vital components, each playing a specific and fundamental role that enables us to survive on a daily basis.


The human body is one topic that is guaranteed to wow and wonder pupils – with its gory pictures of muscles, blood, veins and skeletons. Pupils cannot fail to enjoy this area of the curriculum. To help you get creative with the class, this cross curriculum project offers plans, resources and activities in the subjects of literacy, numeracy, science, art & design, history and music, all within the theme of the Human Body.
