Human Body book

I have my students make a "book" We take a large piece of construction paper (I think it's twice the size of normal paper, the kind that is usually in the art room) and fold it so the ends meet in the middle and there are two flaps that open like "french doors" for the cover. Then I give them a transparency with the outline of the human body on it. They draw all the organs of a particular system inside with sharpies. They use different colors for each organ. Then on note cards they write the word of the organ in the same color they drew the organ in, and the definition (this makes it color coordinated) They do this for all 4 systems we covered, and then the put them in the book overlapping each other. This allows you to see all the organs in the body, and you can look at each transparency seperately to see just one system. The note cards are placed on the side flaps and the transparency in the middle. They look great when they are all finished. I hope this makes some sense...it is Saturday morning and my brain is still a little foggy . Let me know if you need more clarification.

some ideas

A colleague did the Human Body Corporation and they really turned out great! She also gave them the option to create powerpoints for their presentation.
For a culminating activity, I split the students up into 4 teams. Following the Are You Smarter than a 5th grader format, the students created 10 questions based on their study material (5th grade immune system, 2nd grade skeletal system). I rigged 4 die to have each team members name on it (to be used for copy, sneak peak, save)The teams played against each other with the questions they created. Each player got the opportunity to answer 2 questions before a new student came up to play. Unfortunately,no team made it to the million dollars but the students got lots of review in a fun way!

Do you have a picture of your body books? I teach 4th grade and really love this idea for teaching Circulatory, Digestive and Respiratory Systems.

Those Body books sound great I am curious as to what they look like? With the transparency thing, where did you have the students attach them etc.?

needing more about the code blue simulation

I looked into the code blue website and it seems really interesting. What grade to you teach? I teach 5th grade and was wondering if it would be too difficult for them and if it is meant for middle grade classes. Since it is $60, I just want to make sure I really want to invest in it. Thanks!
