Formative Assessment #4: Body Chart

New Review

The body is one big life-sized puzzle! A hands-on lesson builds on the idea and has individuals create life-size models of the body including all important organs of the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems. After building their models, they use them to respond to a writing prompt describing the function of one of these systems.
