Students learn about the INTEGUMENTARY SYSTEM as they move through 9 stations. Engaging student-led independent work!

This activity is designed to DIRECTLY TEACH the integumentary system but is great as a review, as well! Each station (or slide) includes easy-to-digest information about STRUCTURES and FUNCTIONS of the skin, fun facts, related health issues, and how the integumentary system interacts with other systems.


  • To use the PRINT version: Simply make 1-2 copies of the station cards and place them around the room. Make a copy of the student worksheet for each student. Students travel from station to station gathering information and answering questions on the worksheet.
