I gave this project to my students in place of a test. The project has students create a four page, illustrated "book" explaining how organ systems maintain homeostasis, how organ systems are similar to cell organelles, and how disease interupts homeostasis. The format of this project is directly based on short-answer questions frequently found on the New York State Regents Exams.
I have included a rubric for ease of grading. There is no key included because the questions are all very open-ended.
This project was very successful in my class, and I hope that it is in yours, too!
PS- I had my rating ruined by someone who doesn't believe in global warming. If you like this product, please rate it!
