Insights: Grade 6 Human Body Systems Student Science Notebook
Author(s): Education Development Center Inc
In this module, students look at how three different body systems work together to help their bodies function. They begin by looking at the needs their bodies have in order to perform a variety of physical tasks.
As the module continues, the students engage in a variety of activities that demonstrate how the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems work interdependently to provide the cells in the body with the nutrients and energy they need.
Writing is an integral part of learning science in the Insights curriculum, and a critical skill used by scientists. One of the most important tools of the scientist is the science notebook. In this notebook, students will record questions and predictions; observations and data; and interpretations and conclusions. Students may also use this notebook for informal sketches, notes, and reflections on work.
