There will be a quiz on the human body organ systems on Wednesday. Students should study from their 9-page organ system packet they completed two weeks ago. All questions will be taken directly from these worksheets! Also, all notes and labs students completed this week during presentations should be turned in tomorrow.

Students have been working very diligently this past week to prepare their organ system projects. Each group will present their PowerPoint, Lab, and Visual on the following days. Because the 7th grade is hosting a Book Chat tomorrow, there may be a shortened schedule that could affect how many groups can present on Wednesday.

We are in dire need of Jekyll money! We asked for the first deposit of $100 to be turned in during the month of October, but as of yet we have only received money from about a third of the 7th grade population. Though we do not want to leave any students behind for financial reasons, or worse yet, cancel the trip, we have fiscal obligations that need to be met to ensure this amazing field trip occurs. If you have not sent in the first deposit, please consider doing so now, even if your donation comes in smaller increments. The second deposit will be due in February. Thank you.

To help you with your research, I have bookmarked several student-friendly websites that might help you. I will continue to update and add links to this site so check back frequently. If you find a website that was particularly helpful to your group, email me the link and I will post it. Go to the website below and click on your organ system folder to access the links.

Click on the links below to download your organ system's note sheet. At minimum, your group should address all the terms and questions listed for your organ system. Each member of the group is responsible for having their own notes in the group folder.

Below are two templates groups may use to assist them in planning and conducting their labs. One template is in an outline format and one is in the form of a concept map.

This week, students broke themselves into groups and were assigned an organ system in the human body. Students will be working with laptops to create a digital presentation, design a lab experiment to conduct with their classmates, and construct a visual model or demonstration. Students will begin presenting their organ systems in class beginning the week of December 11th. Download the instructions and rubric by clicking below.
