PART BTHE RESOURCE GUIDESTRAND ONE: LIFE SYSTEMSFOCUS: HUMAN ORGAN SYSTEMS
I. THE HUMAN DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
OVERVIEW:
The human digestive system is extremely complex. Because wecannot actually see our organs at work, we can explore their functions and purposethrough other means of investigation. It is helpful for students to understand thevarious functions of the human and have an opportunity to visualize this for themselves in different ways.
PURPOSE:
The purpose of this activity is to assist students to better understand theways in which the various organs of the human digestive system function.
OBJECTIVES:
Students will be able to:
1.
Explain the various organs that make up the human digestive system.
2.
Explain and compare the functions of these various organs and their importance tothe human body.
3.
Build a model of the human digestive system and draw a chart that explains thefunctions of these various organs
ACTIVITIES:
Build a model of the human digestive system (Alternative: Build amodel of one organ in the human digestive system and focus in on its design andfunction?). The model should show the organ(s) very clearly and how they connect
 
with each other. The various organs should be different colours to make it easier tosee them. Each organ should be labeled clearly.
Then:
Draw a chart that explains what each organ does. For example:
Name of OrganFunctionsStomachEsophagus(Sample Chart)MATERIALS:
Plastic, glue and glass for the model. As an alternative, you can usecardboard and glue.
ASSESSMENT:
The final task will have the student stand beside or hold up their model – they willdemonstrate their model to the class. In doing so, they must be able to identify eachorgan (without the labels) and briefly describe the function of each organ. They willalso explain how they learned this information and why it benefits them to know this.II. THE BENEFITS OF REGULAR EXERCISE
OVERVIEW:
Canadians are constantly being told that exercise is important for good health. The concept of the connection between a regular exercise program andmaintaining good health is the main goal of this particular activity. It will be helpfulfor students as they will actually engage in the activity and record their observations.
PURPOSE:

OBJECTIVES:
Students will be able to:
1.
Engage in a daily activity of their choice.
 
2.
Record observation data on a chart.
3.
Explain the benefits or disadvantages of a particular exercise.
ACTIVITIES:
For the next seven days, students will choose a type of exercise theyenjoy, such as skateboarding, swimming, running, skipping, etc. They will engage inthe same activity every day for a minimum of 15 minutes. They will record thefollowing data in chart form:
1.
My chosen exercise
2.
Time of day I exercised and why
3.
Amount of time I exercised and why
4.
Pulse rate before and after exercise
5.
Record the benefits or possible risks with the chosen exercise: for example, mymuscles got sore, or I felt too tired, or I felt really good and had lots of energy, it’stoo easy to have an accident, etc.

The safety precautions they took when doing the exercise, ie. bike helmet,swimming goggles, etc.Your chart might look something like this:MondayTuesday WednesdayThursdayFridaySaturdaySundayExercise:SwimmingTime2 pmAmount of Time20 min.
