Science, Technology and the Human Body

For the past month my STEM partner Tom and I have been assigned to work in the "SWAS" room (a 'school within a school') with a group of 7th and 8th grade students.  For science we started with a unit on the human body, exploring the various body systems.  I found some fantastic content PowerPoints (with note templates) from another teacher's science blog.  Once again, I can't say enough about the power of a Personal Learning Network- this teacher made their materials available on the Internet for others to explore and they definitely helped us (see his blog here).

As a culminating activity we had the students trace themselves and work together to label a body system.  Groups were given websites that had facts about the human body.  They used these sites to develop QR code questions.  The final products were displayed in the SWAS classroom and on our STEM bulletin board in the main hall.  See the pictures below.
