Zoology – Tissues, Organs, and Organ Systems


Project Due Date

A Day – Tues. 9/23/14

B Day – Wed. 9/24/14















Creative Collaboration and Presentation

Group Members: _________________________ ______________________________


Organ System: _______________________________


Date: September 19, 2014 – September 24, 2014

Indicator: 18.1.2Students will identify and define the major levels of organization exhibited in animals.

  • Tissues (epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous)

  • Organs

  • Organ System (circulatory, digestive, nervous, skeletal, reproductive, excretory, respiratory, muscular)


Objective:SWBAT investigate a major organ system in order to explain its form and function.

All organisms are made of cells, the cell is as fundamental to an understanding of zoology as the atom is to an understanding of chemistry. In the hierarchy of biological organization, the cell is the simplest organization of matter than exhibits all of the properties of life. An animal has a body composed of many kinds of specialized cells. A division of labor among cells allows specialization into higher levels of organization (cells, tissues, organs and organ systems).

You and another member of your class will be working on an assignment regarding a specific organ system. You will be collaborating via Prezi or Wiki. You will be given two class periods to work on this assignment. The assign is due at the end of day 2. Assignment dates are as follows: A Day Tues. 9/24/14 and B Day Wed. 9/25/14.


PART 1: Research Information

Total Points



1. List and explain the functions of the organ system.




2. Identify the major organs and their functions.




3. Describe the basic structure (parts) of at least one major organ in assigned body system (i.e. lungs: bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli).




4. List and describe the tissues found in the organ system.

(epithelial, connective, nervous, and/or muscle




5. Compare the organ system in a human to another animal.




PART 2: Visual




6. Identify Organ System through pictures/graphics




7. Labels on major organs for ease of identification.




8. Neat, easy to understand, colorful, creative use of chosen format




PART 3: Citing Sources – Information and Pictures




9. All sources correctly cited.

Note: No work will be graded unless there are citations regarding sources used to generate research and visuals.

Citing Sources:

Using someone else's ideas or phrasing and representing those ideas or phrasing as our own, either on purpose or through carelessness, is a serious offense known as plagiarism. "Ideas or phrasing" includes written or spoken material, of course — from whole papers and paragraphs to sentences, and, indeed, phrases — but it also includes statistics, lab results, art work, etc. REMEMBER TO ALWAYS CITE YOUR SOURCES.

No work will be graded unless there are citations of sources used to generate research and visuals.
