Mapping The Body With Art: TISSUES

Or log in to access your purchased courses

NOTE:  If you have trouble with the course telling you to log in when you are already logged in, try clearing the cache (Google it if you don’t know how), or switching to another browser.  This is problem is infrequent and apparently quite random, so it is hard to diagnose what is going on.  I will be contacting the software company to see if they have any suggestions.

In this module we will look at the four types of tissues in the body: epithelial, connective, muscle and nerve.  Since blood is classified as a connective tissue, a large portion of this module will be dedicated to learning about blood cells, including the white cells that form our immune system.

If you would like to download the template and info pages for this module ahead of time (instead of one by one as you do the lessons), you can use these links:

All the templates needed for module 3

All the info pages needed for module 3

If you want the info pages printed onto the backs of the template pages, you can use this file and tell the printer to print double sided copies:

All texts for Module 3_ with info pages on back side of template pages (print doulbe sided)

If you want the info pages to be on the left side while the templates are on the right (as in the paperback workbook) use this download:

All pages for Module 3 printed with info on left side and template on right (print double sided)


Here is the final test/review for this module (lessons 30-54).  It also posted as the last lesson in this module, although the answer key does not appear on that page, only here, below.  If you are not concerned about grades, you can just use it as a review activity.

If you would like a heads-up about activities that might need some prep or special materials ahead of time, here is a list of what activities I have for each lesson.  I might post more activities in the future (a benefit of doing things online) but as of June 2019 here is what I have.  You can go to the lesson page and check out instructions and materials for those activities.

30: none (short intro lesson)    31: edible models of epithelial tissue (bread, cheese, etc)    32: none (short lesson)   33: edible model of loose connective tissue (gelatin, various tidbits to put into it)    34: dissection of a chicken drumstick to look for connective tissue   35: osteon art project (any media) and optional osteon coookies, (though you could combine these cookies with the blood cell cookies during the blood cell lessons)   36: none (or do blood cell cookies if you want to)   37: just a video lab to watch, but you can try it at home if you want to (involves salad dressings)   38: crossword puzzle   39: online virtual labs about blood types   40: none   41: online game, plus a microscope slide pictures to look at and solve mystery   42: online memory match game   43: Antigen Binding Game (a rather involved game, with downloaded parts to cut out, a bit of time involved in construction of game) (can be optional)   44: none   45: watch an interview with scientific illustrator David Goodsell and see some of his art   46: none   47: online video game   48: Blood Cell Bingo game (parts and instructions downloadable, not too much construction prep)   49: Learn about artists who drew neurons, then try a simply neuron art project using ink and straws   50: Reflex experiments you can do on yourself or a friend   51: Draw some cartoons   52: Domino activity (a video will demonstrate what to do) plus an online computer activity   53: Review crossword puzzle   54: Additional info about smooth muscles (optional) and then the final test/review.
