Working in cooperative learning groups, students study a specialty-the circulatory, respiratory, nervous, digestive, muscular/skeletal, and immune systems—and teach their teammates about the inner workings of the human body through self-created visual aids. Research and critical-thinking skills are put into action as students use Code Cards to "see" their first patient and learn about public health issues. The culminating activity has students showcase their knowledge at Grand Rounds, presenting their most compelling cases to parents and students. The teacher's guide contains complete procedures, handout masters, and assessments, while the student guide gives overviews of each system. The simulation runs for 15 class periods, with flexibility. Grades 5–8. Interact. ©2003.
