Welcome to the 8th Grade Human Body Systems Resource Guide. Here students will find resources to complete their human body systems class lesson and presentation. Below are the requirements for your project. Please review them while doing your research. 

Human Biology Body Systems Project Requirements

The objective of this unit is to generate a lesson to teach the rest of the class about one of the major human body systems.

Generate 5 questions you have that relate to the body system you have been assigned. Your work should focus on helping the class come to a deeper understanding of this system, its parts, and how the system functions to support life. 

You should know and be able to teach others: the parts of the system, the role of each part, the purpose or function of the overall system, how this system works with other systems, diseases associated with the system and ways to maintain the system's healthy function.

When creating your lesson, consider the following points:

Define an objective for your lesson. What do you want others to have learned?

Provide background information on your system.

Key terms should be 5-10 new terms, may be the organs or parts of the system.

Discuss 3 diseases associated with your system.

List ways to maintain the health of your system.

Have at least 2 visual elements as part of your presentation.

Create a hands on activity.

You and your partner will have 30 minutes to teach your lesson.

You will need to hand in a lesson plan, your visual elements and your activity outline.

During your research you will need to use at least 2 internet sources and 1 book.

At the close of the unit there will be an exam focusing on your understanding of the systems of the human body.
