Guts and Bolts? It may sound gross, but it sure is fun! Our newest BrainPOP developed game on GameUp leads students as they help Moby construct a cyborg Tim with a combination of organic tissue and re-purposed household objects. Students will learn about the human body while arranging and connecting organs and systems into their complex configurations. This 11 level game encourages players to apply the scientific method while exploring the circulatory system, respiratory system, and digestive system. A number of the movies in our Body Systems Unit, especially the Circulatory System and Digestive System topics, can assist students in successfully completing the game. We’ve even created a lesson plan that outlines how to use the game in your classroom and includes some valuable teaching resources.
