Incredible phenomena are happening in our bodies all the time. But have you ever stopped to think about what keeps you breathing, how information travels from your senses to your brain instantly, or how your body keeps invaders like bacteria and viruses in check? Now you can jump inside the human body and participate in these physiological processes to help Fred out run danger in the woods. In Code Fred: Survival Mode, students will play mini-games to help our hero run faster, build a blood clot to help heal a wolf bite, prioritize energy intake to the most critical organs, and even fight bacteria invaders after Fred gets sneezed on in the woods. Each mini-game helps Fred run a little farther toward safety. But be careful: Lose one of these challenges, and Fred's body will become one with nature.
In this human body lesson plan which is adaptable for grades 5-11, students explore how body systems work together and help humans survive when in stressful situations. Students will play a set of mini-games in which they send adrenaline to help a character run faster through the woods to escape to safety. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards.
