This serves as a thorough and multi-faceted introduction to the organization of the human body.
• A short reading introduces students to the hierarchy of cells to systems.
• A web quest introduces bilateral symmetry and the broad concept of homeostasis.
• Students use an infographic to complete a table about the 11 body systems, their functions and major organs.
• Finally students think about times they’ve experienced adrenaline rushes, explain what they felt, annotate a short passage about all the systems and organs involved, and use that information to complete a model of an adrenaline rush.
I have uploaded this in a .docx format, so you can modify and differentiate it to fit your classroom and students' needs. Enjoy!
