Sixth-graders Compete in Torso Triathlon

Sixth-graders in Jennifer Licata and Karen Glum’s science classes recently completed a study of the human body, learning the ins and outs of the anatomy of the digestive, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. Students participated in a variety of interactive learning recall activities, including a heart relay and the torso triathlon. “Sixth-graders competed in a torso triathlon to review the body systems they’ve learned,” Licata said. “In small groups students raced to answer questions about the organs and labeled the organs on the anatomy torsos.”
