This week we are doing a science unit focus on the human body.
Firstly, we discussed our goals
We talked a lot about how we are not going to use words like "tummy", we are going to challenge ourselves to use the proper scientific words. If we don't know them, we are going to learn them!
Then we watched this video...
As we watched, Miss Ashley would pause the video and ask questions to clarify understandings and check for connections made. It was awesome! For example, she paused at 1.00, and asked students what were some bones in their body? We all said and pointed to their spine, anklebone, skull, shoulder blade etc.
As our first goal was to 'name at least 3 systems of the body', we aimed to complete this goal after watching this video. Here are some student blog posts explaining 3 systems of the body in their own words.
Digestive system-when you eat it go down your body and the nutrients go away and the one you don't need you poop it out.
muscular system-the function is that the muscular make you talk,run,walk,move and everything.
nervous system- your bairn make you stand up and it send you a messege to make you move.
digestive systems function the food takes out the nutrients go to the blood then the rest that the food tears into poop.
muscular systems is your muscles one of your muscle is your bicep brachii.
the function is your stomach and your intestinesthe function is your muscles and where you get strong
the function is your lungs and where your heart is on the other side on your left.
Even though some of us didn't really get it, most of us did and that is awesome! We will get the chance to revisit this learning throughout the week and make connections as learn about the various organs which are involved with different bodily systems.
