The Journey of a Carrot

Today we watched a video clip simulating the passage of food through the digestive system. This evoked all kinds of questions. We had some great dialogue about the functions and dysfunctions of the digestive system.

Summing Up the Integumentary, Muscular, and Skeletal Systems

Today students took an open notebook quiz over the Integumentary, Muscular, and Skeletal Systems. Upon completion students were to review their Muscle LAB and check there analysis graph, paragraph, and calculations for accuracy before turning them in today.

If you did not turn in your Oh! My Muscles Ache Story today make sure you make your story meaningful using the muscles in context. Remember…no listing.

All stories and redo’s are due Friday. – no later.

So, did your right hand use the same amount of ATP as your left? Which hand may have generated the most lactic acid? is there a connection between muscle fatigue and lactic acid build up?

Homework:

My Residency! Public Service Announcement Commercial and Doctor-Patient Counseling Skit

Today students which did not turn in the opt out form took a 20 min Georgia Health Survey.

We then discussed the next part of the Residency Project, the development of a public service announcement (PSA) and patient-doctor counseling session.


The PSA can be completed using animoto, voki, goanimate, imovie, or canva to name a few. It must be in digital format..see rubric for details: Human Body Project- My Residency! Rubric 2

The doctor-patient counseling session is a “Live” or Pre-recorded” role play which simulates how a doctor informs their patients of their disorder, how the disorder has affected the cells, tissue, organs, and systems, and treatment which will take place. The patient will need to ask inquisitive questions about their disorder, express concerns, and ask about short and long terms affects. The information in the independent research “Dr.’s Report” should be used in the construction of the script. Refer to the rubric for specific details.

 

Homework; 

Complete Oh My Bones Ache and My Muscles Ache Too Story…due Thursday.
