MATERIA: BIOLOGÍA Y GEOLOGÍA

TEMA: HUMAN BODY AND HEALTH.
CURSO: 3º ESO

==

Las actividades que componen una Webtask han de poner su acento en el contenido y no en la forma lingüística. Por tanto, el objetivo fundamental de aprendizaje serán los contenidos de la materia Biología y Geología. La lengua inglesa se usará como vehículo.
Trataremos de contextualizar esta webtask en una situación que podría darse en la realidad. Los estudiantes llevarán a cabo distintas actividades que les permitirán ir recopilando la información necesaria para elaborar más tarde la tarea final.

Objetivos generales:
  • ====Conocer los principales órganos del cuerpo humano y sus funciones.====

  • ====Conocer las prácticas beneficiosas y perjudiciales para la salud de nuestro cuerpo.====


Temporalización:

Nuestra webtask está pensada para ser desarrollada en tres sesiones:
En la primera, podrán obtener información general de la anatomía humana. y practicar para distinguir las partes del cuerpo, ubicaciones de los órganos principales y funciones básicas de los distintos sistemas. Se trataría de una introducción al tema (que normalmente se correspondería con la unidad 1 de esta materia), ya que en el currículum de 3 ª de ESO se estudiará con más profundidad y de forma individual cada sistema del cuerpo humano a lo largo del curso.
En la segunda sesión, una vez reconocida la complejidad y perfección de la máquina que constituye el cuerpo humano, se tratará de tomar conciencia de la necesidad de cuidar nuestro propio cuerpo y hacer uso de prácticas saludables de vida. Esta segunda sesión pondrá el broche para la elaboración de la tarea final (tercera sesión), que consistirá en una presentación de diapositivas con todo lo aprendido y que llevará por título: General anatomy of a human and health. Esta presentación después será subida a la web y colgada en el blog de la clase.

Criterios de evaluación:

1. Buscar y recopilar información a partir de los recursos web facilitados y saber aplicarlos en la realización de las actividades propuestas.
2. Distinguir las partes del cuerpo humano, sus principales órganos y componentes y comprender su funcionamiento general.
3. Mostrar rigor científico, esmero y creatividad según corresponda en cada actividad o experimento.
4. Valorar la relación entre buen funcionamiento del cuerpo humano y salud y conocer las prácticas cotidianas que pueden resultar perjudiciales o beneficiosas para nuestro cuerpo.
5. Presentar los resultados o conclusiones claramente estructurados.
6. Trabajar en grupo de forma organizada y productiva.
7. Adquirir vocabulario relacionado con el cuerpo humano y la salud.
8. Afianzar la adquisición de las destrezas comunicativas básicas en inglés.

INTRODUCTION

We are going to know the most important parts of our body and how to live and eat in order to stay healthy.

CONTEXT

How do your body work?
The teachers at your high school are very concerned about the health of students.. Lately, they have been noticing that their students are very tired in the morning during class, sometimes with headaches or stomachaches. They even have difficulty to climb up stairs or to concentrate. When they are asked about their lifestyle, most students confess they take no breakfast in the morning, most of them watch TV or surf the web until very late and many spend the weekend drinking alcohol and smoking, because, as they say, it’ is very funny and they are young.
Your teacher decides to ask for help to a doctor who works at the nearest hospital. He suggests that students themselves prepare a brief presentation about human body and habits to stay healthy, Before that, students must search for information about the topic.
The activities in this web task will help you find useful information for the final task.
When finished, the doctor will visit the shooll to evaluate the work of student and to answer the question and doubts.
