After learning about the human body systems, students choose or are assigned a disease or disorder to conduct further research on. They complete the activity sheet by doing the following. Give a brief description of the disease/disorder they researched. Then fill out a chart that reveals which of the main body systems are affected, which main organs it affects, and how. Download and edit this Word document or print as is. Chart is completed with a list of the systems and labeled columns for whether or not that system is affected, which organs are affected, and a larger column for a description of how they are affected.
This activity allows students to realize how the body systems work together, how organs can be a part of more than one system, how a disease or disorder can affect one or many systems, and the many affects this all has on the body.
