Now that you have completed the Body Systems WebLesson and know about your body, you have been asked to design a multimedia project that will teach other 4th graders about their bodies. You should teach them how their body systems work, what is needed to keep each system working well, and then persuade them to do the things necessary to keep their bodies in top shape.
Make sure that you cover all the basics and give enough information so that students will be compelled to treat their bodies in the best way possible for a long and healthy life. Your work will be scored using the Body Systems Rubric. Check carefully to make certain you have completed every area.
Each group will select one of the following body systems or senses to research. Use any materials you can find using local resources as well as the following Internet sites.
When you have completed this Quest, it will be posted on our web page as a resource for other students when they study Body Systems, so it must be accurate and well done!
