Make a urinary system

Linking to the topics animals including humans and body system and cells, this lesson pack for year 6 and P7 teaches how our urinary system works. Think about everything you’ve eaten since yesterday. Right now, your body is breaking it down to release the energy and nutrients you need to grow. This also produces chemicals you don’t need. Your body gets rid of them by making wee! Your body has a whole wee-producing department called the urinary system, including your kidneys, bladder and the tubes that connect them and carry the wee out of your body.

This pack includes:

  • A lesson plan, complete with an explanation of how our kidneys work.
  • Differentiated printable instructions to make a urinary system.
  • A PowerPoint presentation that explains how the urinary system and kidneys work.
  • A printable wee colour chart.
  • A Wee-ly true quiz.

Simple to resource! The items you will need:

  • Empty shoe box
  • Empty plastic cartons
  • Coffee filters
  • A heavy weight, like a tin of food
  • Paper straws
  • Balloons
  • Yellow food colouring
