Northport sixth graders study the human body

Northport K-8 sixth grade science instructor Amanda Sartain addressed deep content in her lesson segment about the human body systems and their relationship within the body.  Ms. Sartain reviewed the new content, then organized students into learning teams to practice and deepen knowledge. Students shared the tasks of cutting out the skeletal system with construction paper, added the main organs for respiratory, circulatory, nervous and digestive systems and then attached each organ to the appropriate place in relation to the skeleton and displayed on a hallway wall. Students then labeled each organ with function and each system with its job in the body.  Students worked cooperatively putting the bodies together on the wall and then reviewed each system within their learning teams.  As students were reviewing within the teams, Mrs. Sartain monitored for remaining unanswered questions and addressed student learning needs. Pictured is Ms. Sartain with her sixth grade students.
