No Guts ! No Glory!

Overview

There are more than 50 trillion single cells in the human body made up of more than 200 different cell types, and each perform a different function. Each cell type has a different structure, which ultimately determines its function. When groups of cells that perform the same or similar function are combined, a tissue is created. When a group of tissues combines to perform a function, an organ results; and a group of organs performing a combined function results in the body systems. The eleven primary body systems are the digestive, endocrine, excretory, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, lymphatic/immune, muscular, skeletal, and integumentary.

Objective:  To assess your knowledge of the human body prior to taking this course. You will revisit your life-size human body poster at the end of the year!

No Guts!No Glory!

Students will work with a life sized tracing of one of their team; then put all the listed organs in their proper place. This will be revisited at the end of the year/semester to assess learning.

The human body is an amazing machine run by a very complex system. There are more than 50 trillion single cells in the human body made up of more than 200 different cell types, and each perform a different function. Each cell type has a different structure, which ultimately determines its function. When groups of cells that perform the same or similar function are combined, a tissue is created.
