Webquest Flipbook

  1. 1. Exploring the Human Digestive System Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] A WebQuest for 9th Grade (Life Schence) Designed by Justin Anderson [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
  2. 2. Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Imagine being a medical student in the 19 th century who did not have a textbook or computer to teach them the organs of the human digestive system. There was little known about how the body actually functioned and the only true exploration into these body systems were conducted on cadavers(dead bodies). You are going to be in the same position as these early scientists but with a twist. Today you will individually explore the site: http://www.kidshealth.org/teen/nutrition/general/digestive_system.html to learn about the human digestive system. You will use this site to see the different organs that create this amazing system and how they work together. You will do as those early scientists did by viewing the organs in the bodies, diagramming them in a notebook, and connecting the pieces of this delicate system. This will help you all further understand how and why your bodies work the way they do.
  3. 3. The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] How does the digestive system work? Go to kidshealth.org view the section labeled digestive system. on the teen site Explore the different organs involved with this system keeping in mind that you’ll be creating a notebook with drawings and descriptions of these organs. While you are learning about the individual organs, create a flip book that includes: one(1) page drawing of each organ, labeling the anatomical features. A list of the important anatomical features will be posted . A short description on the back of that page about the function of the organ These pages must be in the correct order that food or drink would pass through the body starting with the mouth. Title
  4. 4. The Process Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] 1. Visit the website www.kidshealthorg. Read as much information on each of the three sites to gain background information about the digestive system. 2. Take some notes as to the important organs and their functions. Also pay attention to the order in which they occur in the digestive process. 3. Complete a flip book of drawings of each organ involved in the system in the correct order of digestion. 4. Label the important anatomical features of the organs making sure to include all on the provided list. 5. On the back side of each drawing describe the function of the organ and how it relates to the system as a whole. These organ drawings need to be in the correct order of digestion of food. The order on the sheet is not necessarily in the correct order of digestion. Make sure to label these parts. Mouth Colon -Teeth -Tongue Liver Esophagus -Larynx Pancreas -Pharynx Stomach Gall Bladder -sphincter Small intestine -Duodenum -Ilium -Jejunum Large Intestine -Cecum -Appendix .
  5. 5. Evaluation Example: Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Beginning 2 Developing 6 Accomplished 8 Exemplary 10 Score Appearance of flipbook. Flip book looks like it was completed in very short time and little attention was paid to following directions Flipbook looks like it was completed with little effort to follow all directions Flipbook looks like the student put some quality time into making the drawings and labels. Drawings are great and all labels have been added in the correct spots. Explanations of organs and role in the system. Student made no attempt to explain the function or role of the organs. Student made some effort to explain the function and/or role of organs but were not correct. Student made general remarks about the function and role of the organs but did not mention any specifics. Student made great comments about the role and function of the organ in the system and was very specific. Order of flipbook Student did not put book in correct order Student made little effort to put book in correct order Book was in correct order except one mistake Book was in the correct order. Following directions and use of time Student did not follow directions given to them and had poor use of time in class. Student followed directions but was off task most of the time Student followed directions for the most part and was on task most of the time Student followed directions and was always on task Group presentation of their flip book Did not present. NA NA Student presented their flipbook to the group.
  6. 6. Conclusion Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] In this exercise you learned how the digestive system works and the different organs that make up this amazing system. You created a useful tool to study and use as a reference later in the course as we look at the many systems of the body and how they all work together in harmony to make us live.

  8. 8. Exploring the Human Digestive System (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for 9th Grade (Life Science) Designed by Justin Anderson [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  9. 9. Introduction (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This project was created while I was in the Colorado State University Education program and felt that it would be a great way for students to learn about the different systems of the body. It allows students to explore and create a product that will help them learn. The product can be as complex or as simple as time and your students allow. This lesson is used to have students learn about the systems of the body and more specifically the digestive system. This lesson can be easily changed for the individual systems and for the individual students depending on their needs. The list of labeled items can be added to or edited to suit the level of student knowledge that you expect them to gain. Be sure to explain that there are more sites out there to explore the systems of the body and that using more than one resource can be beneficial to more complete learning and understanding. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  10. 10. Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson was intended for the use of a 9th grade biology or life sciences class where the students would be exploring how the systems of the body work. This lesson can be modified to suit the needs of any class from 6th grade anatomy to 12th grade physiology. This can be done by simply modifying the list of labels or even the product. You can also add a writing assignment along with this to describe the path of the food through the system as seen from the food’s point of vies. The only real information that the students might need to have before starting this exercise would be a class discussion of what they know about the digestive system and maybe what they don’t know about this system.

Mouth Colon -Teeth -Tongue Liver Esophagus -Larynx Pancreas -Pharynx Stomach Gall Bladder -sphincter Small intestine -Duodenum Large Intestine -Ilium -Appendix -Jejunum -Cecum This lesson should be rather easy to complete after the webquest is completed and should take about three days of class depending on how many computers are avilable. There are not many things that a teacher must keep in mind as they head into this exercise but must be familiar with the different systems of the body and how the parts add up to a whole. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  13. 13. Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page There are not many outside resources that are needed to complete this exercise. The main thing is computer for nearly every student and some motivational posters around the room for students to look at while they work on the flipbook. The students will look at the teen and kids site on www.kidshealth.com to search for the digestive system. The teacher might want to have a few old biology or anatomy books around to help those students that are absent or might not have the use of a computer. The teacher should be prepared to help the students if at all possible but I feel this exercise will be much better if the teacher limits the amount of help to minimum. The students will get to figure this out on their own and as long as they follow the instructions the assignment should be pretty easily completed. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  14. 14. Evaluation (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page To understand if the students have been successful is as easy as grading with the rubric that was given to them during the introduction to the assignment. To determine if the teacher has been successful is a different story. Give the students a small quiz to make sure they understand how the systems work and test them on the important parts of the system and the individual organs. Be generous on the grading if the student obviously put forth great effort. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  15. 15. Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This assignment and exercise can be very useful and helpful in teaching the systems of the body because it is totally dependent on the students and their work ethic. This will empower the students to find the information that would normally be taught in class. They will create a flipbook that will be added to and used in the future to help them understand how the body works the way it does. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
