This foldable turned out better than I could have imagined. Students cut the foldable out and wrote each body system out on the flap and then looked up the function and drew a symbolic picture of the system on the front of the foldable. On the inside of the foldable students described the function of the system and listed the major organs in each system. These were the middle school benchmarks and a pre-requisite to the high school benchmark of relating the systems to one another. On the inside of the foldable students choose at least two systems and described how they related to one another. The following day we traced our bodies on large paper and each group was assignmed a body system. They traced, labeled and described the organs once again of the system. A gallery walk is planned for Friday where students will summarize each system based on the walk through. Happy teaching!
