Human Diseases


There are many human diseases in the world today and this intro page helps to share many different ones.  For your assignment, we have limited the diseases you will be researching to ones that relate to the systems you have been researching.

We have spent the last couple of months learning about some of the different systems of our bodies: digestive, circulatroy, skeletal and muscular.  We have learned about the basic structures and functions of these systems but, what happens if something goes worng in those systems?  What happens if you have a disorder or disease of that system?  You will be placed into groups so make sure you work together and divide up the work equally.  Gather information about your disease/disorder and present your research information in a multi-media presentation:  This could be in a glog form using Glogster, a movie using Windows Movie Maker, or a Prezi.  For all presentations, you will need to find pictures and make videos describing your disease.
