Making assessment as visual as possible for the younger students
Using the idea of moving wind for the respiratory system, the students will be challenged to compare their rate of breathing to how fast the wind blows. For the muscular system, they will identify a color that represents how their muscles feel when engaged in different levels of exercise. Finally, the students will choose images of the working heart to compare how their heart feels when engaged in activity.
They will be designing their own exercises and referring back to these visuals over the next few classes. I'll be blogging about how it goes. Wish me luck!!
