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 or Smart Board or just use a projector onto a whiteboard or blackboard to fill in the notes. I use my KEY to fill in the blanks while the students are doing the same. OR, the notes can be filled in by the students using the Digestive System PPT sold under separate cover in my store. The PPT includes lots of animations and is extremely comprehensive, but the KEY that is included in this unit works just as well. It's all about personal preference. Some teachers prefer not to be 'tethered' to the front of the classroom while filling in notes at the board. This is where the PPTx comes into play - the teacher can circulate the classroom while the students are filling in the notes from the PPTx. Win win.
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", also found in TpT.
