Beginning a body systems unit? Start students off with studying individual organs using the Organ Poster Walk Project!
This is a group project where students learn and teach about an organ system of the human body. Students work with a group to create a Google Slides presentation to teach the class about their organ system. Students also create a 5-question Kahoot quiz to test their classmates on how closely they paid attention during the presentation.
- Student directions/ checklist for presentation & Kahoot
- Rubric for grading presentation content
- Student guide to creating a Kahoot
I have students complete this project after they've finished a research paper on a specific body organ. The organ system students are assigned to correlates to the organ system their individual organ was in, so they come with background knowledge already. Students have several class workdays to research and create their presentation and Kahoot, and I block off 2-3 60-minute class periods for presentations.
You could also assess speaking and listening during the presentations, though a rubric is not included for that. I recommend having the student audience take notes on each presentation. Since most students will likely format their presentations similarly, this is a great opportunity to practice a note-taking system like Cornell Notes. Allowing students to use their notes during the Kahoots will encourage attentive note-taking.
