Description

Organ Trail Information from Science Spot

Teacher Information Objective: Students will use internet resources to research an organ to learn how it works with other organs and organ systems to keep the body healthy. The information gathered will be used to create a poster (or other type of display) to share what they learned with their classmates. What organs do you use for this project? Go to http://www.organsofthebody.com/ to find a list of organs that could be used for this project. Print a list of the organs and have students draw a slip to select the organs. Do students work in pairs or individually? Students usually work on their own; however, use your discretion depending on the ability level of your students. How much time do you give students to complete the project? Students usually need 2 class periods (42 minutes each). Where can students find links to help them complete this assignment? A list of health-related links is available on the Health & Human Body links page at the Kid Zone at http://sciencespot.net/. Students may also use search engines or other online resources. How do you grade the student projects? A sample rubric has been provided in this download, but feel free to modify it to your students needs. What do students do with their finished posters? Allow time for students to share their projects with their classmates either in small groups or as a class presentation. Extension ideas include:  Have the students stand in a large circle facing the center. Provide yarn to connect the students based on the organ they researched for the project. Start with one student and have him/her tell the name of the organ and then choose another student to connect to using the yarn. The student should give a reason for the connection based on what they learned. Continue building connections until all the students are included in the circle. Repeat the activity, but require students to connect to a different organ each round.  Have the students organize themselves into various groups based on characteristics you provide. For example, if you were to say digestive system, the students who play a major role in the digestive system should line up in one area of the room. Other examples would include size (larger, smaller, or equal to a tennis ball), location in the body (top to bottom or everywhere), or whether or not it is needed for life (heart vs. gallbladder), etc. You can also have the students line up alphabetically or organize themselves by the actual size of the organ. Do you have other extension ideas? Send them to me at ttomm@sciencespot.net. Note: This project uses Poster My Wall website. If your students do not have access to this website, you may print copies of the generic "wanted" poster on the last page for them to use.
