About SNAPs Lab Stations Activities
SNAPs Lab Stations Activities require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. They are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. Each station activity promotes skills so to develop students into proficient and competent scientific thinkers.
SNAPs lab activities have five components:
• Science Skills Station to develop science skill proficiency
• Narrative Station to build science literacy
• Assessment Station to evaluate learning and understanding
• Problem-Solving Station to foster engineering design
• Synthesis/Summary Project to inspire higher-order learning

A description of the activities at each station in this particular lab is detailed below.
Human Body Systems Interactions Lab Stations Activity Learning Objectives
1. Discuss how specialized organs and structures interact to make up organ systems that perform specific, complex life functions.
2. Discuss how organ systems (subsystems) work together to carry out necessary functions for survival and growth.
3. Identify problems caused by organ failure and how those problems impact the functioning and interaction of organ systems.
Science Skills Station
Students will study structures of the circulatory, digestive, respiratory, nervous and excretory system and how those structures work together to perform the function of the organ systems. Students will also identify and describe interactions between organ systems and how those interactions are important to survival and growth.
Students will watch a video about how organs interact with each other to form organ system and how those organ systems work together to carry out necessary functions for survival and growth.
At this station, students will answer questions about key terms and ideas relating to organ and organ system interactions. Students will have to employ lower, mid and higher order thinking skills to answer these questions.
Students will identify problems that occur due to organ failure. Specifically, students will discuss how organ failure impacts the functioning of the organ system which it belongs to and the ability of organ systems to interact and work together.
Students will have a choice of 11 projects. Refer to the SNAPs Lab Stations Best Practices and Setup Guide for directions and suggestions on how to conduct the project.
NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS
This laboratory satisfies NGSS MS-LS1-3. It combines the three dimensions of science learning - science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts - to meet the standard. This lab also makes interdisciplinary connections to STEM, Math CCSS and ELA CCSS to build the appropriate skills.
