Looking for a FUN and engaging way to teach your students about the body systems? Students can travel from station to station - OR- you can print smaller versions and have the students use the cards as independent centers. Their task is to analyze the cards in different ways and write the answers on the sheet provided (see preview). Inspired by the Bodies Exhibit, my exhibition labs always go above and beyond- exploring interesting facts, medical conditions, as well as the traditional classroom knowledge, without getting too off-track. Best of all, they are learning all on their own, this is a student-lead activity, which can give you a break from the spotlight. It's a win-win!
Many stations involve students deducing the answers based on the text provided, as well as several mini lab exercises that can be done based on the materials you have available to you.
There are 18 digestive system stations (21 pages total), and are completely editable (via PowerPoint). Student answer sheet and answer key are provided!
