(Nervous System must be one of the eight systems chosen – for obvious reasons!) Grade depends upon… Shows detailed understanding of the body systems chosen Functions of each system are addressed and applied to your particular activity Scientific vocabulary used and used correctly Creative and Neat product List of Resources Used Possible Formats: Written interview with each body system Travel brochure through the body systems Newspaper with News Stories about each system during the activity Poster Essay Other Format Ideas? Check with me! PowerPoint Guidelines – KISS Method DO DON’T Add Meaningful Add anything that Additions - Facts doesn’t support Relevant Pictures No Paragraphs! Bulleted No bells, whistles, Points/Phrases flashing lights, One Sentence unnecessary Maximum distractions, Content, Content, meaningless clip art, Content etc. Variety is Interesting You Must Add a List of Sources Used! (At least 3 Sources) Human Body Systems - Challenge Option#1 Pick an athlete of your choice….(not Lance) How does _____’s physiology give him/her an advantage over his/her competitors? 1. Identify aspects of physiology that give the advantage (brainstorming with partner, logical reasoning, research, etc.) 2. Thoroughly explain the impact these attributes have on high performance for that particular sport, event or position. 3. Include proof – statistics, expert opinions, etc. 4. Once you’ve done the research, break it down and teach the rest of the class. Be ready to answer tough questions from the class (probably a PowerPoint) Possible Athletes…. Aurelio Rodriguez (Baseball) Ichiro Suzuki (Baseball) Tony Hawk (Skateboarding) Wayne Gretzky (Ice Hockey) Ryan/Casey Powell (Lacrosse) Robby Nash (Windsurfing) Christine Sinclair (Soccer) Mia Hamm (Soccer) Tiger Woods (Golf) Kelly Slater (Surfer) Shaun Alexander (Football) Peyton Manning (Football) Shaquille O’Neal (Basketball) Michael Jordan (Basketball) Human Body Systems – Very Challenging Option #2 You are a coach for _____________. You must design a training/nutritional plan that would lead to a high performing physiology for the athlete’s particular sport, event or position. 1. Identify aspects of performance you need to target (endurance, speed, agility, muscle strength, etc.) 2. Explain how your training/nutritional plan will impact the aspects you identified and allow for overall high performance for that particular sport, event or position. 3. Really challenging additional option – a timeline for preparation so athlete peaks for the big game or competition 4. Once you’ve done the research, break it down and teach the rest of the class. Be ready to answer tough questions from the class (probably a PowerPoint)
