The Human Body & the Environment How Our Surroundings Affect Our Health by Creative Media Applications

If someone dropped you on the moon without an astronaut's equipment, what would happen? You'd die, of course. The human body depends on its environment. This engaging four-volume set examines our bodies' inseparable relationship with the environment. Each volume presents the parts of a particular body system and how they work, things that go wrong and how they're treated, how the environment affects the particular body system and impacts our health, controversial environmental issues (where applicable), and changes individuals and groups are making to fix environmental problems and restore health. Volume 1: The Muscular & Skeletal Systems Volume 2: The Circulatory & Respiratory Systems Volume 3: The Digestive & Urinary Systems Volume 4: The Reproductive & Nervous Systems Set Features: * 576 pages in 4 volumes * 7 x 10 * 2-color interior * 175 Photographs * 50 Charts and Illustrations * Sidebars and Fact boxes * Glossary * Pronunciation key * Source list (books, Web sites, etc.) * Index. Curriculum Themes: * Anatomy * Body Systems (parts of each system and how they interact together) * Diseases * Common tests and treatments * Environmental impact on health * Wellness techniques. Reading Level: 6th-8th Grade


?Attractive volumes on the human body and how its various systems interact, for good or ill, with the physical environment....these books provide an important perspective for students. Some librarians might prefer to circulate them so that students can spend some time with them.?-School Library Journal
