Take a break from lecture and allow students to move through this mini-project to learn the 5 hormones of subtopic 6.6. They begin by taking notes on the roles of Insulin, Glucagon, Leptin, Melatonin & Thyroxin. Then they create analogous "characters" for each of them through personification. By creating analogies, students will have an opportunity to show their own creativity (which can be difficult in the rigors of the IB curriculum) and to remember the hormones better. This mini-project also allows for differentiation as students can take the analogies as far as they can. They'll have fun with this, I know my students did!
