5th Grade Human Body Systems

Introduction

HEY FIFTH GRADERS!!!

Welcome to the 5th Grade Body System Webquest. 

This WebQuest is designed for 5th grade students.  Students will discover, learn, and present a presentation about an assigned body system.  Students will learn about the body system, its fuctions, and why they need to take care of their body. 

 

Students will be exploring  one of the four major body systems and will present their findings to their classmates.

The four body systems we research are:

Respiratory System

Excretory System

Circulatory System

Digestive System


Task

Each group will be responsible for exploring the websites for their assigned body system. 

Each group will be responsible for the following

  • Creating and labeling a poster of their body system.  Students should have at least 5 labels for their given system.
  • Students will read and research each of the websites under their assigned body system.
  • Students will use information from the website and science book to complete questions about their human body system.
  • Students will take an online quiz.
  • Students will use their questions to complete a google slides presentation.  Each presenation should include an introductory slide, a slide for each question, and an image on every slide. 
Process

Body System Exploration Procedures

1. Use poster paper to design, draw, and label your assigned body system.

2. Get your systems research questions from your teacher.
