This document is in Word format and is used as an introduction to the digestive system. 'Open Notes' allows a great deal of information to be presented to the student without taking copious handwritten notes. It also requires complete student participation and engagement. I make a copy of the open notes for each student, then project the same copy onto the Promethean board or just use a projector onto a whiteboard or blackboard. I use my KEY to fill in the blanks while the students are doing the same. This activity also includes a drag and drop of the digestive system anatomy - the drag and drop is performed by the teacher while the students fill in their blanks on their copy of the notes.
Once the notes have been completed by the student, I create additional graded assignments based on the open notes such as the "Digestive System Open Notes W.S." and the "Digestive System Matching".
