Alternate lesson

The local museum has selected your class to create a student
exhibit where students can come and learn about each part of
the human body, including the nervous system, respiratory
system, circulatory system, and digestive system.
Your task is to create an online (website, PowerPoint, Prezi,
etc.) to inform other students about the importance and
function of one of these body systems.
How many of you have a bike?
What are the parts of the bike?
Think about how the parts of a bike work together to help you create movement. For example, if one part of
the bike is not working, is it still possible that bike will work? Will the bike work as efficiently
Would the bike would still work properly if you didn’t treat it properly? Each part of the bicycle plays an
important function in making the bike work as a whole.
Ask students to think about how the organs in a body system, such as the digestive system, work together.
Hold up an apple and take a bite. Ask students what body system you are using to eat the apple. Record
students’ answers on chart paper. Ask students how each part of the digestive system works together to help
digest the apple.
Ask students how the bicycle system is analogous to the digestive system in the human body.
The following information needs to be provided:
What is the name of your body system?
Where is the system located?
What is the role of the system?
What organs make up this body system?
What are the main functions of this human body system?
What is each organ’s function in the body system?
How do the organs perform these functions?
You MUST include a drawing (with arrows and labels) of your body system. NO replications; original drawings
(with color) only!
The diagram, or illustration, should include major organs, correct terminology in the labeling, and a brief text
description of how each part contributes to the system’s role in the human body.
EXAMPLE Website/Powerpoint/Prezi:
Title Page: Name of the body system
Page 2: Function— What is the role of your system?
Page 3: Problems and Diseases— What problems can occur?
Page 4: Staying Healthy— What can people do to keep this system healthy? Why is this
system important for good health?
