Introduction
Howdy, Partner! It’s time to hitch those oxen to
your covered wagon and begin an adventure
travelin’ down the Organ Trail!
As you trek your trail, your job is to learn all about
your organ and the body system it belongs to!
You will also work with a partner to create a Wanted
poster to post and share with the other cowboys
and gals back at camp!
Next
Task
• You have been assigned a partner, a job duty, and an organ. Here is how
you will complete the Organ Trail and get back to camp:
1.
2.
3.
4.
First, you will be given an Organ Trail Journal, where you will record
important information you learn about your organ on each of the trail
stops.(Each person will complete the Organ Trail Journal and turn it in at
the end of the journey.)
Second, you will proceed to the Process page (next), where you will click
on your organ and visit each of the trail stops listed. Follow the
instructions given to avoid extra reading and confusion. (Be sure to
record important information in your journal!)
After you have visited all of the trail stops and completed each section in
your journal, you may click the sign that says “Head toward Camp” at the
bottom of the page. This will take you to the evaluation page, where you
will see the rubric and instructions for the poster you will create.
After you have reviewed the rubric and instructions for creating the
Wanted Poster, you may click the sign that says, “Camp”.
Good luck on your journey, and I’ll see you back at camp!

Evaluation
• Wanted Poster Instructions:
– You are to work together with your partner to create a poster describing
why you want (need) your organ. After you have discussed what your
poster will say and look like, you may begin working on it. You will be
given the template for the poster, and a blank sheet of paper to create
the organ drawing. The “artist” will create the picture of the organ,
while the “recorder” will record the information discussed by the team
onto the poster. The artist will then cut out the drawing and paste it
onto the poster above the writing. Each person will write their name at
the bottom of the poster and turn it in.
