Human Reproduction. Our project

During this term we´ll be working on a  project on human reproduction.

We are working in groups of  3 members, each of us with a special job: a secretary, a facilitator and the one who will perform the oral presentation.

All our work must be uploaded in our blogs, including names of all members of the team.

We will go back in time to remember and sometimes learn about the time when we were growing inside our mothers´womb…

Go ahead and enjoy it!!

Each member of the group is going to find out at home how he / she came into this world. You will ask your parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents and record the data they give you.

Later you will get together with the other members of your group to collect all the information you were able to obtain  to make

a song, a rap or  a poem

a role play

a mind map or a spider web

a Venn diagram or a chart to show differences and similarities in our recorded data

to share your ” story ” in class.

And here´s a tutorial on how to work with Screencast o matic to make the presentation on your project to be loaded and shared on your blogs
