HUMAN ORGAN SYSTEMS


WEB QUEST

Curriculum Expectations
3.1 identify major systems in the human body (e.g., musculoskeletal

system, digestive system, nervous system, circulatory system) and


describe their roles and interrelationships 3.2 describe the basic structure and function of major organs in the

respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems (e.g., we have two

lungs; each one is about 2530 cm long and cone-shaped; the right lung is slightly bigger because it has three lobes and the left lung has only two; our lungs are responsible for gas exchanges)
3.4 identify common diseases and the organs and/or body systems that they affect (e.g., epilepsy affects the brain [central nervous

system]; appendicitis affects the appendix [digestive system]; asthma

Human Organ Systems Web Quest


Below are the instructions for your Human Organ Systems web quest. You will be expected to visit each website link, gather the information which is required of you, and fill out the following graphic organizers. Make sure to read all instructions thoroughly and complete the web Step 1: ScienceNet Interactive Go to http://sciencenetlinks.com/interactives/A llSystems.swf - Click on the How to Play button. - Once you understand the game, click on the red Start button. - Complete the 4 body systems following the label at the bottom of the screen. Once you have successfully completed a system, draw and label it on the organizer provided. Do this for all 4 Step 2: Discovery Kids Go to http://kids.discovery.com/tell-me/science/bodysystems - Click "More Body Systems" at the bottom left of the page. - Click on each of the following systems and fill out the conceptual graphic organizer called Body Systemps for that section. 1) Nervous system 2) Digestive system 3) Cardiovascular system Find and explain three interesting START

Step 3: Kids Health Go to http://teenshealth.org/teen/diseases_conditi ons - Choose one of the following headings: o Brain & Nervous System, o Digestive System, o Heart & Cardiovascular System, or o Lungs & Respiratory System. - Choose a disease that interests you (e.g. Lungs & Respiratory Asthma). - Read about/listen the information. o What is this disease? o How does it develop?
o How do doctors treat it? - Watch any videos that pertain to the disease as you go through the article. Make sure you press the continue button at the bottom of the page! Next, - Go back to the main page and scroll down to 'Personal Stories'. - Choose a story of a child or teen who has been affected by the disease you have Step 4: Prezi Presentation Go to - Create a 2-3 minute presentation about what you have learned. - Success Criteria:

o A labeled diagram of one


human organ system. o A short description of one organ and how it functions in this system. o A short description of one disease that affects this organ, and one real-life story that explains the effects of this disease.

Prezi Presentation Checklist
