A Trip Through the Human Body by 4th Grade

In 4th grade, one of the science standards students learn about is the human body and body parts.  In order to extend their knowledge about the human body, the 4th graders created a Keynote presentation and animation that would tell about the chosen body system.  The body system story was told from the perspective of an object that travels through that system.  A few examples are a musical note traveling through the ear or a pizza moving through the digestive system. 

To complete this project, the students first chose a body system and had to write a script using key anatomical words that relate to the body system chosen. Next, students had to find pictures related to their script and create their Keynote presentation.  Third, the 4th graders added in the animation of the key character or object as it moves through the body system on Keynote.  Last, students added transitions and audio to the presentation.  Through this science project, the 4th graders had fun learning about script writing, digital media presentation, animation and video creation.  The video below shows an example of three completed projects.  Enjoy!!
