Hi 7th grade Scientists! Let’s use Cobb Digital Library to locate the BEST, most timely and relevant information on how organ systems interact to carry out life functions. Humans–and other complex multicellular organisms–have systems of organs that work together carrying out processes that keep us alive. Here’s how to get started using Cobb Digital Library to learn all about human body systems.
Science Databases are arranged in a group for quick access and include:
Helpful Hint: In BrainPOP, use the Make-a-Map Feature to create outlines of your notes.
*All of the above resources feature content on Human Body Systems
Use this graphic organizer to assist you in note-taking.
This daily checklist will be turned in as your “Ticket Out the Door” at the end of each class period and will provide daily feedback regarding your progress.
|S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.
c. Construct an argument that systems of the body (Cardiovascular, Excretory, Digestive, Respiratory, Muscular, Nervous, and Immune) interact with one another to carry out life processes.
(Clarification statement: The emphasis is not on learning individual structures and functions associated with each system, but on how systems interact to support life processes.)
