As summative assessment in this unit of inquiry, grade 4 students are having doctor-patient role-play.  In this assessment, the little doctor must be able to diagnose an illness based on the symptoms which the patients mention.  The doctor also needs to explain how body system are interdependent, and later give suggestions to the patient the healthy lifestyle the patient must have.  The students really enjoy this activity, moreover, they show their best effort in understanding this unit.

Circulatory System

One of human body system that students learn in this Unit of Inquiry “Who We Are” is Circulatory System. It is an organ system that permits blood to circulate and transport nutrients (such as amino acids and electrolytes), oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, and blood cells to and from the cells in the body to provide nourishment and help in fighting diseases, stabilize temperature and pH, and maintain homeostasis.

Students learn how blood circulates from and to the heart or to our body by role playing (on a giant heart poster) as the blood that runs through the four chambers of heart, such as right atrium, right ventricle, left atrium, and left ventricle. They need to wear red and blue t-shirt to show different roles and functions of the blood which passing through the right chamber (the blue part) and the left chamber (the red part). They are very excited!

Grade 4 Excursion to Museum Anatomy Atma Jaya

Related to the Unit of Inquiry about body systems, this week grade 4 Andalas, Borneo and Celebes went to museum Anatomi Atma Jaya Jakarta. The students were very excited to learning about body systems in this museum. Arrived in the museum, the doctor team welcomed us and grouped the students. A doctor was assigned in each group to explain all systems in our body.

After visited the museum, we went to the audio room to watch the video about body system and have an explanation from the doctor about respiratory system and digestive system. At the end of the event, the students and teachers got a pin from the museum. We do hope by visiting this place, the students will gain more knowledge about body systems

and also care about their body by applying the healthy life style.

 

Respiratory System

What do lungs do? What organ helps us to breathe? What is the connection between respiratory system and digestive system? What is the effect of smoking to our lungs? What are the differences and the similarities of big and small intestine? How do the right and left lung work?

Wow, they have so many questions about body system. This week after having excursion, the students learning about respiratory system and at the end of the lesson they made conceptual questions (function, connection, change) about body system
