HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS TRAVEL BROCHURE
Background: You are working for a travel agency as a marketing consultant, and your job is to create a
travel brochure for a luxury, all inclusive tour of the human body. In order to receive your commission
on this project, your boss has informed you that the brochure should highlight the trendy spots (i.e.the
major organs), the exciting activities (i.e .the functions of the organ systems), and any imports and/or
exports of the area (i.e. materials moved into, throughout, or out of the system). As with any
responsible publication, you must always be mindful of insurance considerations, so your brochure will
need to note any possible dangers or special precautions relevant to visiting these body systems. (These
would be diseases or disorders.)You will need to include some sort of link or connection in your
descriptions that lets the reader know how the hot spots on this tour (i.e.body systems) are interrelated.
Your tour must include visits to the following systems: nervous, skeletal, muscular, digestive,
cardiovascular, respiratory, integumentary, endocrine, lymphatic (immune), urinary, and excretory
Format: Your brochure will be in a booklet format. It will be important for you to view examples of real
travel brochures to get an idea of their layout. Brochures should be colorful and neat. You should
certainly have an inviting cover page. You may use pictures from magazines or the Internet or create
your own drawings, as long as each location on your tour (i.e. each body system) is represented by at
least 2 pictures. If possible, all of your information should be typed, and of course, colorful ink is
preferred, but not required. Your creativity is vital to your success, so concentrate on this being a
captivating advertisement rather than a science assignment.
1. Each of the functions of the listed body systems is included.
2. At least 2 pictures related to each system should be displayed.
3. The major organs of the body systems are featured, along with their jobs. (For the skeletal
system, do not list all the bones by names. Instead, use bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons as
the organs. For the muscular system, include the 3 types of muscle and their functions.)
4. For those systems that bring materials in, move them around, or get rid of them, be sure to
name the substances moved as part of your portrayal of the imports and exports .
5. Each body system should have a minimum of 2 precautions or dangers.
6. Relationships between or among body systems must be depicted.
