- Human Body
In teams, become an expert on one organ system and try to convince your classmates that it is the most important in the body.
Organ systems are groups of organs that work together to do a job for the body they live in. For example, they can help with gas exchange, removing waste, obtaining and transporting nutrients and protecting the body from disease.
This exploration is a jigsaw activity with a twist. Students will work in small groups to become experts on the organ system assigned to them. They will then use creative methods to share their knowledge with the rest of the class. This lesson can be used effectively to preview all organ systems before exploring them in more depth and it also serves as an excellent end-of-unit review tool.
