Body Systems Project – Day 1

Today we had an unannounced clicker quiz that served multiple purposes.  First, the quiz allowed students to assess their knowledge of body systems vocabulary.  Second, students were able to voice which body system they though twas most affected in Josh when he became sick.  Their opinions determined which body systems would be available for the group projects.  Finally, students with the highest scores quiz scores were identified as project team leads, and their “reward” was being able to select from the list of available body systems.  Students who were not team leads then had to identify which body system and team leader their skill set would best fit, and then sign up to join that group.  We will launch the projects tomorrow.  Click here for the slides presented today showing new vocabulary around the levels of cellular organization (cell, tissue, organ, and organ system – synonymous with body system) and the requirements of the project.
