Human Body Systems

Welcome to the 7th Grade Body Systems Webquest!

Here you will find all the information you need in order to complete this project.

Through this project you will learn different body systems in the human body, the parts of these systems, and what each system does.

At the end of this, you will understand the importance of each system, and how and why each system depends on the other systems to function.

 

"The Panther Paw Awards"

The Human Body has won the coveted "Panther Paw" Award as being the Best Living Machine.

Nominees for the Best System in a supporting role are the:

  • Respiratory System
  • Digestive System
  • Circulatory System
  • Excretory System

Your team needs to study one of these body systems and provide information and reasons why it would be most deserving of this award.

Your challenge will be to study one body system and justify why you think your system should win the coveted

"Panther Paw Award"

for Best Body System in a Supporting Role

Explain why the Human Body could not survive without your system. You must convince your audience that your body system is the most deserving of this award.

Your team must decide how you will share your findings. Possible methods of sharing this information could include: a visual, a video, an iMovie, or a Powerpoint presentation.

At the end of the presentations, audience members will vote for the Body System most deserving of the award, and the Panther Paw Award will be awarded to the winner.

All teams should have an acceptance speech prepared in the event that their Body System is chosen as the winner. Be sure to thank your fellow nominees. Without their unfailing support and teamwork, your Body System would not be the success it is today.
