Human body systems are a field that biologists are learning more about each year. With the work done by researchers and doctors, more is known about the functions of body systems found in humans.

In this activity, you will have an opportunity to choose a human body system and research the details of the system. The project is made up of three parts: Rough Draft, Oral Presentation, and PowerPoint Presentation. A general rubric is presented on the back that will be used to grade each part of the activity. This completed sheet along with the rubric is worth 15 points.
