My students need organs to dissect and duct tape to construct rockets for the sixth grade Science class laboratories.
Our sixth graders did not meet the annual yearly progress rate and growth in Science. We would like to provide meaningful, learning experiences. Our district is leaving fiscal distress and is working to become financially solvent. 51% of our students are on the free/reduced lunch program.
Our students are part of the "Pirates" school district.
Many students live in rural areas of the county. They attend our small school which includes less than three hundred students in grades five to eight. There are a variety of educational levels in the class. They range from the gifted and talented students to the students with special needs. All students are excited about conducting experiments and creating projects in Science class.
In the Life Science unit, students will take a teacher-made pretest of the parts and functions of the organs, identify organs of the body and explain their functions, including the eye, lung and heart.(L.S. 2.6.4) The teacher will provide a demonstration of proper safety procedures while locating parts and dissecting an organ.(L.S. 2.6.6) The most interesting way for students to study organs is to actually see an example, identify the parts and dissect the organs.(L.S. 2.6.6) After step-by-step instructions in dissecting an organ, students will be interested in locating parts and labeling a diagram and eventually dissecting the organ. A rubric will be used to evaluate the dissection inquiry. A post test will be given to assess the students increased knowledge. In the Physical Science unit, the students will design and make a water bottle rocket to demonstrate the effects of force on a stationary object.(P.S. 6.6.7) The students will enjoy learning about force, motion and acceleration.
By providing individual scientific inquiries, students will be engaged in hands-on investigations which will create an interest in the organs of the body, their parts and functions.
After the dissections, students will have a greater interest in investigating scientists and historical breakthroughs related to organs such as research in the area of heart disease.(L.S. 2.6.6) In Physical Science students will enjoy and learn about Newton's Laws of motion while demonstrating their rockets.
