FIND THE MYSTERY GERM
• A Fun Game About the Human Body
• 2 Different Sets of Clue Cards
• Human Body Terms Defined on Task Cards
Find the Mystery Germ • Grades 5–8 is a fun and creative way to culminate a unit on the human body and provide a comprehensive review of human body terminology. Fifty-eight terms are listed and defined on Task Cards for review and reinforcement. There are also two separate games where students eliminate possible places where the germs Sherm (game #1) and Ferm (game #2) are hiding using the clues on Task Cards until only one place is left – the secret location in the human body! Each set of 28 Task Cards has different clues, borders, artwork, Student’s Answer Sheet, Student’s Checklist, and Answer Key so it’s easy for you to keep the two games separated. You get twice the FUN in this one unit!
Be sure your students are familiar with the human body terms and definitions before playing Find the Mystery Germ or a class game of Scoot.
In addition to the two games, this unit also includes:
• a Note to Students
• an Answer Key
• a Student’s Answer Sheet
(to record the human body terms being eliminated for each clue)
• a Student’s Checklist
(students place a check mark by each human body term eliminated for each Task Card)
• an Alphabetical List of 58 Human Body Terms
• 58 Task Cards with Definitions for the human body
(ideal for science centers or bulletin board displays)
• directions for playing Scoot
The Task Cards are ideal for partner work, individualized instruction, or for playing Scoot as a whole class activity. For extra fun, divide your class into teams and challenge the teams to see which can be the first to find where the elusive germ is hiding in the body.
