This 90 minute lesson is designed to give students an in-depth understanding of the human muscle system, at the same time building confidence with analyzing informational texts and becoming self-motivated learners.
The lesson is able to be taught as a stand-alone lesson, but also integrated into a larger unit project where students synthesis how to keep all body systems healthy through the lens of their focus readings.
This entire lesson can be accomplished in 70-90 minutes, but could easily be broken into two days (instruction day 1, student exploration with informational texts day 2).
