Body System: ______________________

Directions: Your group’s job is to prepare a presentation to teach your classmates about one
human body system. Your presentation may be a live PowerPoint presentation at the
SmartBoard, or a pre-recorded video of your presentation. Each group will be provided with a
Body System Checklist of important terms and items that must be included in their presentation.
Groups must use classroom and library reference materials, as well as online resources listed at
http://sciencespot.net to research their organ system.
ALL presentations must include the following:

Part 1: Introduction
Give the name and the major functions of your body system.

Part 2: Diagram
Provide a diagram of your body system with the major parts (organs) labeled with their name
and functions. You must include the source of your diagram. You must also include a blank
diagram for your classmates to take notes on during your presentation.

Part 3: Interdependence of Systems
Explain how your body system works with other systems in the body.

Part 4: Diseases
Explain two diseases affecting your body system. You must describe symptoms, causes, and
treatments of each disease. You must also include graphics regarding each disease, and the
sources of your information.

Part 5: Fun Facts
Find five interesting facts about your body system or its parts. You must include the source of
your facts. If the facts are not in your own words, then they must be presented in quotation
marks, with a source.

More Details:
Groups will be allowed five class periods to create and prepare for a Power Point presentation
and fill-in-the-blank worksheet with a diagram of your system (and a separate key). The
presentation must be made using the Power Point program, saved on a jump drive and in your
network folder, AND submitted digitally to your teacher (preferably via email). The presentation
must consist of at least 8 slides. A Works Cited page must also be submitted.

Presentations and worksheets will be collected on _______________.
You will not be allowed to continue working on your project after this date.

Body System Checklist
Use the Body System Checklist for YOUR system to help take notes for your project!




SELF EVALUATION – Be sure to use the checklist below, along with the Body System
Checklist for YOUR system to guide your project.

Introduction
    o Did you provide the name of your organ system?
    o Did you give descriptions of the major functions of your system?

   o Did you give the class a blank diagram of your body system to label and take notes on
      during your presentation?
   o Did you include a diagram of your body system with the major parts or organs labeled in
      your presentation?

Interdependence of Systems
    o Did you give descriptions of interactions of your system with at least two other body
      systems?

            Be sure to focus your slides on the Science.
         o Was the information presented in an organized manner?
         o Did you “know” the information? You should know the information well enough that
            you do not need to read it word-for-word off note cards or the slides.
         o Did you present to the class? Don’t talk to the screen!
         o Did you practice? Be sure to run through your presentation a few times
            before you present to the class!
