Know Your Body Systems
After completing this activity,
students should be able to
- identify the systems of the human body.
- describe the functions of the body systems.
- present body system information in a clear and organized
students to name body functions or processes that they control.
Then ask them to name body functions or processes that occur
without any real effort on their part. Which body systems
are responsible for these functions? Which body parts aid
in the process? Have students discuss their answers as a group.
Have students form small discussion
groups. Ask them to exchange research reports, and allow time
for students to read one or two of their classmates' reports.
Then have them discuss one another's work. Was the report
interesting and informative? Was the information presented
in a clear and organized format? Did students learn anything
new from reading the report? If so, what? If not, what additional
information might have been included?
