Flippables, foldables, 3d models, experiments, research, transdisciplinary…….all in the name of inquiry based science. This mini unit inquires into the human skeletal system and how it compares with other organisms . It is aligned with the IB PYP and is a part of my complete unit of inquiry looking at the human body and how our organs and systems are interdependent, together with how we compare to the systems that give life to other organisms. This mini unit is perfect if you are only looking into the skeletal system. UK & USA spelling included.
It is wholly differentiated with tasks marked A being more challenging than those marked B. It is suitable for grades 4-6. I have planned around the key concepts of form, function and connection. Our lines of inquiry are:
•What is the skeletal system and how does it serve our body?
•.How do the organs function and connect within a body system?
•.Compare and contrast the human skeletal system with those of other living creatures.
•interactive notebook activities
•STEAM craftivities – building skeletons
•Inquiry based maths -measure , problem solving, data analysis
•Formative assessments and reflection sheets
The complete unit of inquiry covers circulatory, respiratory, digestive, nervous, immune, skeletal and muscular systems. You can take a peek here. A Human Body Interactive Science Unit of Inquiry
