Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. They will also learn how to find credible sources on the internet. Then, students will be assigned a human body system (and optionally, a partner or group to work with). Students will have a Human Body System Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about their assigned body system. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!
Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a mixed media body system diagram of their assigned body system and a written human body system report. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the “Human Body Systems Fair” where your students can show off their diagrams.
