March Math Skills Review for 2nd & 3rd Grades

Is it important to review Math Skills throughout the year? Yes! When we learn new information, we remember it best immediately after we’ve learned it. It is easy to forget skills, even just a few days or weeks after we’ve learned them. That is why it is important that we make time to have students review previously learned skills.

There are a lot of Math skills being taught in the 2nd and 3rd grades and these skills need to be repeatedly reinforced throughout the year.

For teachers looking to add some holiday flair to the review of Math skills in the month of March, I’ve created March Math Skills Review for 2nd & 3rd Grades with a St. Patrick’s Day theme!

Snowman Graphing for 2nd and 3rd Grades (Winter Math Activities)

wz 253 f

Looking for fun Winter Math activities? Check out my Snowman Graphing for 2nd and 3rd Grades unit. Your students will have fun creating unique ‘dressed’ snowmen. After all are complete, the graphing activity(ies) can begin!Great as a whole class activity, or in cooperative groups and/or centers. This has been created for 2nd and 3rd grades, however younger or older students might enjoy as well.

Directions (included in the download):

Snowman Activity Directions
(Students will have fun creating their own unique snowman!)
Distribute or place copies of the following snowman pages. On each page will be 1 snowman and several colored articles of clothing.
Students are to cut out each piece along with the snowman and then begin to create unique snowmen by gluing the clothing of their choice on to his/her snowman. (One page of this download provides the snowman template page without color. Use this page if you desire to have students color the article of clothes themselves.)

Snowman Graphing Directions
After all the snowmen have been created, work as a class to create a graph (or graphs) showing the articles of clothing (and their colors) that were used! This can be a very simple graph for younger students or can be multiple graphs displaying much greater detail. This download does provide some ‘simple and ready to use’ graphs for students if more
detailed ones are not assigned or demonstrated. Also included our uncolored articles of clothing which can be colored and used on the
provided graphs.

Ideas:
Use the first half of this activity (the creation of the snowmen) as a center activity.
Divide students up into cooperative groups and have them work to create a graph (or multiple graphs) of the snowmen created by group members.
Create a bulletin board around the activity displaying the snowmen as well as a graph (or graphs created).

Circulatory System for Kids

Planning a study on the human circulatory system? Let CHSH-Teach.com help!

zx__327_d

The Circulatory System 

The circulatory system is a vast network of organs and vessels that is responsible for the flow of blood, nutrients, hormones, oxygen and other gases to and from cells. Without the circulatory system, the body would not be able to fight disease or maintain a stable internal environment — such as proper temperature and pH — known as homeostasis. Circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system, as simply a highway for blood, it is made up of three independent systems that work together: the heart (cardiovascular); lungs (pulmonary); and arteries, veins, coronary and portal vessels (systemic) In the average human, about 2,000 gallons (7,572 liters) of blood travel daily through about 60,000 miles (96,560 kilometers) of blood vessels. An average adult has 5 to 6 quarts (4.7 to 5.6 liters) of blood, which is made up of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. In addition to blood, the circulatory system moves lymph, which is a clear fluid that helps rid the body of unwanted material. The heart, blood, and blood vessels make up the cardiovascular component of the circulatory system. It includes the pulmonary circulation, a “loop” through the lungs where blood is oxygenated. It also incorporates the systemic circulation, which runs through the rest of the body to provide oxygenated blood.

The Heart 

The heart, is defined as a pump that is responsible for the continuous blood flow through the blood vessels. This vital organ is the size of a human fist, and is lies in the middle of the chest and slightly towards the left of the breastbone. The heart is enclosed in the pericardium which is a double layer, and it is protected by the rib cage. Basically, our blood is pumped through a network of vessels that is approximately 75,000 miles, and the excess body fat increases the workload of the heart by adding about 200 miles of capillaries. A mature heart pumps an average of 4,000 gallons a day.

The human heart has four pumping chambers the two located at the upper region are called auricles (also called atriums) and the other two are located further down, are called ventricles. Blood flows from large veins into the auricles, which contract to force it into the ventricles. When the ventricles contract, blood is involuntary push out though large arteries to commence its journey. The two auricles are separated by a divider called a septum, as are two ventricles, so the two heart is essentially a dual pump, with the left and right sides forming completely distinct blood pathways. The right side of the heart takes blood from the body and pumps into the lungs. Blood moves from the right side of the heart to the lungs through the pulmonary arteries. The left side takes the blood from the lungs, and pumps it directly to the body. Valves in the heart and veins avoid blood from moving in the wrong direction as the organ alternately pumps and relaxes.

zx__227_b

Blood Vessels

System of blood vessels includes arteries, veins and capillaries. The arteries transport blood away from the heart and veins bring blood toward the heart. Blood moves from the right side of the heart to the lungs through pulmonary arteries and returns to the left side of the heart through the pulmonary veins. The left side of the heart pumps blood into an artery aorta this leads other arteries like highways. Capillaries are the smallest of the blood vessels are at the end of the supply line they receive and distribute the goods. Capillary walls are so thin that molecules of oxygen and nutrients pass right through into the cells and molecules of carbon dioxide and other waste products pass from the cells into the blood. Then when is through with the delivery and taking on a new load of waste products blood flows into tiny veins in turn lead to larger veins on the return trip to the heart.

Blood

The blood consists of a liquid called plasma, solid material, red cells, white cells, and platelets.

Plasma

This brings nutrients to the cells and carries away waste materials. It contains hormones this control many activities in the body and fibrinogen helps the blood to clot.

Plasma is just a liquid portion within our body blood, as we know this is something that can be donated and it reproduces itself as the days go by.

Red Blood Cells

Are the most abundant solid material in human blood with about 5 million of them in each milliliter. Red blood cells pick up oxygen from the lungs and deliver it to the cells of the body and is exchanged for carbon dioxide then return the carbon dioxide to the lungs to be exhaled. The blood gets its red color from an iron compound called hemoglobin is contained in the red blood cells and which is responsible for their ability to transport oxygen. Each red blood cell has a life span of about 120 days. During that time, they make approximately 75,000 round trips from the heart to other parts of the body. Also, Red blood cells can be located in marrow, within the hallow bones.

White Blood Cells

Are larger but much less numerous than red blood cells. Colorless and spherical in shape, irregular protrusions, and defend the body against infection and disease. White blood cells (WBCs), also called leukocytes or leucocytes, are the cells of the immune system that are involved in protecting the body against both infectious disease and foreign invaders.

Platelets

Are colorless, irregularly shaped, and even smaller than the red blood cells. It give off a chemical that reacts with fibrinogen in plasma to cause clotting when exposed to the air at a wound site.

Lymphatic System

Works very close with the circulatory system of the blood. As blood moves through capillaries around the body cells white blood cells pass through the capillary walls and move among the cells collecting harmful bacteria and other disease-causing organisms. Some of the blood plasma seeps through also flows freely among the cells bathing them with nutrients and picking up waste materials some white cells go along with other matter in the plasma.

Lymph Nodes

The nodes it is a concentration of white blood cells that kill harmful bacteria that might have been picked up from the cells by the lymph. The lymph is filtered and purified before being returned to the blood.

Respiratory System

Is to supply the body with oxygen and to discard carbon dioxide which is product of cells. Blood transports oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body and transport carbon dioxide back to the lungs to be exhaled.
