Highland Third Graders Study Body Systems
Third graders from Highland Elementary (Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools) have been using the technology in the AT&T Classroom to study body systems. As an introduction to the digestive system, the class viewed a video on the Game Aquariuam website and an online animation that helped to illustrate the digestive process. Students also played a game online that required them to know how the digestive system worked. Students used resources from Brain Pop, Kids Health, Medtropolis, and Sheppard Software to study the nervous system, circulatory system, muscular system, respiratory system and skeletal system. After studying the various body systems, each student created a PhotoStory to share what they had learned about one specific body system. In small groups, students selected a body system to research and then created a claymation to explain how that body system works. As a final project, each student created their own Glogster to share what they had learned across the six weeks about health, nutrition, fitness, sleep, and body systems.
