Subject: Science (7), or Technology Education (6 - 8)
Title: The Human Body Inc.: What's an Arm and a Leg Worth?
Description: In this technology-based project, students will take on the role of a legal defense team and prepare the court defense for a body organ that is currently an employee of Human Body Inc.. Due to recent cost increases, the Human Body has had to fire workers. Assuming the role as lawyer, students' responsibilities are to conduct research, collect and analyze material, and produce an informative and explanatory multimedia presentation (PowerPoint, PhotoStory, Keynote, etc.) defending their body organ's position in the company and what would happen if their client were fired. In addition, they are to create a brochure, highlighting the trendy spots, the exciting activities, etc., of the body system in which the organ works, convincing the corporation of the importance in keeping their client. The students will present their case at an administrative hearing to the Human Body Committee (whole class), the corporate group who will decide the ultimate fate of the body organ.

Title: You Are What You Eat
Description: Girls and boys explore the connections between a well-balanced diet and a healthy body. Students keep a food diary, then compare their diet to the recommended daily allowance of food servings. Students use Thinkfinity websites to examine and explore food labels and the nutrients in various foods. They examine their own diet and come up with a healthy eating plan that they can live with using the MyPryamid.gov website. Students will then research diseases in our society related to diet and nutrition and present their findings to the class in a presentation form of their choice. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project, funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Title: Coping with Changes     
Description: The purpose of this Science NetLinks lesson is to understand how the nervous system allows us to learn, remember, and cope with changes in the environment. The activities in this lesson introduce the nervous system, both in parts and as a whole. By learning about the whole system, students understand that the brain, spinal cord, and nerve cells are at the root of all other body functions.

Title: Nearsightedness     
Description: In this Science NetLinks lesson, students develop an understanding of why scientific investigations may yield varying results. Students examine the nature of scientific research in the context of research pertaining to myopia--or nearsightedness--a common condition that normally first appears in school-age children. Myopia provides an interesting context in which to examine the scientific world view, because though it is a very common condition, it is a topic about which there is still some scientific debate.

Title: Sanitation and Human Health     
Description: The purpose of this Science NetLinks lesson is to develop an understanding of the impact of improved sanitation on human health. In this lesson, students learn something about the ways that sanitation technology has helped people by examining the history of sanitation in the context of disease outbreaks and comparing the quality of life in those times to that of today. By the end of this lesson, students should recognize that advances in health and human life expectancy have resulted in large part because of technologies that we now take for granted, such as modern waste-disposal, sanitary food handling, and refrigeration.
