Lesson overview

Systems of the human body

Students investigate the systems of the human body through reference to themselves using layers and illustration.

Start by taking a self portrait and annotating the things that make you and your body unique. Then take it below the surface by researching the body’s core systems and creating infographics that represent each one. Finish up by summarizing your findings in Keynote, using your own words to give context to your illustrations.
