All of Yuhas’s Biology Classes – Dissection Assignment – Systems of the Human Body

Complete the following Pre-Dissection Lab Assignment.

Due Wednesday, June 10th

This will be counted as a project grade.

Systems of the Human Body

  1. Each of the following systems should be explained—meaning that an appropriate image used, each important structure for each system identified, labeled and function explained.
    1. Digestive System
    2. Urinary System
    3. Respiratory System
    4. Circulatory System
    5. Nervous System
  2. Choose one organ or structure from EACH of the five systems above. Explain one way this organ or structure can become diseased or compromised in the human body (cancer, genetic disorder, environment, etc.). You will have to go back to what we have learned over the school year to explain in detail how the organ or structure has become diseased. You should have 5 pictures—one organ from each system—your choice, but be sure it is identifiable as that organ/structure by the image.
  3. You have the choice in how you want to hand this assignment in. You can put together a PowerPoint, poster, model, etc. No written research papers.
  4. Cite all of your sources. Paraphrase.
