This NGSS activity gets kids thinking! Take your review to a deeper level by having students compare and contrast the digestive and respiratory systems.
This graphic organizer has students organize ideas about how the respiratory system and digestive system are alike (they take in substances the body needs, have specialized structures for absorption, etc.) and how they are different. It's a nice way to do more than just a rote review - this works to get kids thinking about body systems on a deeper level. Supports NGSS MS-LS-1-3
