Biology Vertebrate System Project

Biology Vertebrate System Project                                                              DUE _____                 Dr.

You will make a life-sized poster of a human system of your choice.  You will trace your body in class and include the following things on your poster.

/16       Life Size color pictures and labels of 8 organs involved in your system, positioned anatomically

correctly (you only have to do 8 of the 9 organs listed in each system below. You choose which 8)

/8         Labels explaining the function of the 8 organs in your system

/5         The labeled pathway that something (blood, food, oxygen, nerve impulse etc) would travel in that system

/5         The name and 5 symptoms of a disease that people get when their system does not function

properly

/5         A description of 5 things that do not work correctly when one has this disease

/5         A description of 5 things that     can be done to prevent or help this disease

/5         All captions should be typed in large (larger than 26) font

/5         Project should be neat, colorful, creative and factual

 

Extra credit available for 3-D organs, and organs that mechanically demonstrate their function

On the back of this page is an organization sheet to help you collect the data for your poster.  Remember to cut out organs that are the actual size (and color if possible) as the ones in your body, and to place them in the appropriate position on your poster.
