Anatomy and Physiology
Students should develop an understanding of the human body in
order to make decisions that have a positive impact on their health
and lives.
Enduring understandings
• The human body is based on organ systems that work
together to keep the body healthy and alive.
• Homeostasis is maintained in the human body. If that
homeostasis is not maintained, then the body will not
function properly and will result in illness and disease.
• The structure of an organ affects its function.
• Technology has improved human lives.
Essential Questions
• How does each of the body systems work?
• How does the structure of an organ affect its function?
• How does one organ system affect all of the other organ
• How does the body maintain homeostasis?
• How has technology aided in keeping humans alive?
• How do illnesses and diseases affect the human body?
