Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

From WatchKnow (Approved: begamatt), produced by Kerry Matthews
Mrs. Matthews science class has been studying the organs and systems in the human body.  They have built on their studies over the past two weeks from smallest to largest: organelles, cells, tissues, organs, systems, and organisms. This weeks six centers included (1) A.R. books read with partners (2) crossword puzzle that included definitions of organs and systems (3) flashcards with pictures of various key organs in the body (4) two web sites using multiple choice quiz/game formats (5) magnetic matching game and (6) the "Can-Do" game from Lakeshore.  Students also completed two extensive art activities this week.  Students drew cells all over a Kleenex tissue and then glued the tissues onto organs to remind them of the progression from smallest to largest.

Organs and Systems Lesson Plan This lesson plan includes ideas for six centers. It also includes links to interactive websites for the Promethean/smart board. Unit is meant to help students understand the different systems in the body along with key organs for each system. Students in 5th grade must also understand how certain systems work TOGETHER. begamatt 08/08/2011
Organs in Human Body - Power Point This power point is not meant to match the vocabulary words for the week. It simply contains images of various organs in the body. It could be used for a class game. begamatt 08/08/2011
Types of Cells - Power Point This power point is not meant to match vocabulary words. It contains images of various types of CELLS in the human body (hair cell, skin cell, blood cell etc) and can be used with the art activity using kleenex tissues. (Cells work together to perform specific jobs. A bunch of cells make a tissue. A bunch of tissues make an organ. A bunch of organs make a system...) begamatt 08/08/2011
Systems and Key Organs in the Human Body This power point provides the answers to the flashcard vocabulary words. begamatt 08/08/2011
Human Body Flashcards This document provides the definitions for 7 systems in the human body. Students must cut the cards out, and flip each one over to write the answer. begamatt 08/08/2011
Human Body Test This document includes 20 questions, multiple choice, about the human body. Questions may need to be cut and paste to fit on ONE piece of paper (front and back). begamatt 08/08/2011
