1 Video Osmosis Jones Lesson Plan This video falls great between the Cell unit and the beginning of the Body Systems unit. It is a comedy story about how the body gets sick and all the jobs of certain parts of your body and what they do to fight germs in the body. Much of the information is based on sound facts and then played up to be entertaining also. Day 1- Students begin the video with an introduction about the purpose. Students are told that the makeup of the organism begins small. Cell to tissue to organ to organ systems and finally to the actual organism. Students are told to listen carefully to what is being said and the habits of the characters. Day 2- Continue the video Day 3/4- Questions given to students. They can use their phones and work in groups to locate the answers. Correction of the paperwork questions is also done if time permits. Due to the fact that some students do not have a phone with the internet, some paperwork must be taken home to complete and so correction may occur on day 4 after the students have had a chance to go home and complete the questions. After correction I have a power point presentation to show the characters and which star was the voice. It just wraps up the lesson and the students enjoy seeing the face of the voice. I then follow up with another power point presentation about each body system and the organs that are involved. If time permits we talk about what each organ does for the system.

2 Group Names General questions Class period Date Osmosis Jones Questions 1. Why does it matter if Osmosis is put into a scab or a nosebleed? Where would that leave him? 2. Why was the flu virus shot considered an informant? 3. What can a pill that is for cold and flu do for a body? List at least 3 items, more if you find them. 4. What do you think Drix meant when he said that Osmosis Jones had pliable cellular dynamics? 5. What did Frank mean when he said, Chicken going down rough, chicken going down rough! 6. Many medicines are put into our system with water and transformed into an effervescent formula. What does effervescent mean when we are talking about a medicine?

3 7. This question requires your group to read aloud. Take turns passing the paper around to read aloud and listen..... this is interesting stuff!: During your history classes you were informed about a disease that arrived in Europe by sea in October 1347 when 12 Genoese trading ships docked at the Sicilian port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. The people who gathered on the docks to greet the ships were met with a horrifying surprise: Most of the sailors aboard the ships were dead, and those who were still alive were gravely ill. They were overcome with fever, unable to keep food down and delirious from pain. Strangest of all, they were covered in mysterious black boils that oozed blood and pus and gave their illness its name: the Black Death. The Sicilian authorities hastily ordered the fleet of death ships out of the harbor, but it was too late: Over the next five years, the mysterious Black Death would kill more than 20 million people in Europe almost one-third of the continent s population. Find out what the name of this dreaded disease was. they were scarcely equipped for the horrible reality of the Black Death. In men and women alike, the Italian poet Giovanni Boccaccio wrote, at the beginning of the malady, certain swellings, either on the groin or under the armpits waxed to the bigness of a common apple, others to the size of an egg, some more and some less, and these the vulgar named plague-boils. Blood and pus seeped out of these strange swellings, which were followed by a host of other unpleasant symptoms fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, terrible aches and pains and then, in short order, death. The Black Death was terrifyingly, indiscriminately contagious: the mere touching of the clothes, wrote Boccaccio, appeared to itself to communicate the malady to the toucher. The disease was also terrifyingly efficient. People who were perfectly healthy when they went to bed at night could be dead by morning. Understanding the Black Death Today, scientists understand that the Black Death, now known as the plague, is spread by a bacillus called Yersina pestis. (The French biologist Alexandre Yersin discovered this germ at the end of the 19th century.) They know that the bacillus travels from person to person pneumonically, or through the air, as well as through the bite of infected fleas and rats. Today, this grim sequence of events is terrifying but comprehensible. In the middle of the 14th century, however, there seemed to be no rational explanation for it. No one knew exactly how the Black Death was

4 transmitted from one patient to another according to one doctor, for example, instantaneous death occurs when the aerial spirit escaping from the eyes of the sick man strikes the healthy person standing near and looking at the sick and no one knew how to prevent or treat it. Physicians relied on crude and unsophisticated techniques such as bloodletting and boil-lancing (practices that were dangerous as well as unsanitary) and superstitious practices such as burning aromatic herbs and bathing in rosewater or vinegar. Many people fled the cities for the countryside, but even there they could not escape the disease. It affected cows, sheep, goats, pigs and chickens as well as people. In fact, so many sheep died that one of the consequences of the Black Death was a European wool shortage. Many people, desperate to save themselves even abandoned their sick and dying loved ones. The Black Death epidemic had run its course by the early 1350s, but the plague reappeared every few generations for centuries. Modern sanitation and public-health practices have greatly mitigated the impact of the disease but have not eliminated it. Because they did not understand the biology of the disease, many people believed that the Black Death was a kind of divine punishment retribution for sins against God such as greed, blasphemy, heresy, fornication and worldliness. By this logic, the only way to overcome the plague was to win God s forgiveness. Some people coped with the terror and uncertainty of the Black Death epidemic by lashing out at their neighbors; others coped by turning inward and fretting about the condition of their own souls. Some upper-class men joined processions of flagellants that traveled from town to town and engaged in public displays of penance and punishment: They would beat themselves and one another with heavy leather straps studded with sharp pieces of metal while the townspeople looked on. The Black Death epidemic had run its course by the early 1350s, but the plague reappeared every few generations for centuries. Modern sanitation and public-health practices have greatly mitigated the impact of the disease but have not eliminated it. As a group find out what the common name for The Black Plague is: 8.

Explain what you found out: 32. How was Thrax eliminated? Would this really work to kill a virus? 33. What body system is the lungs a part of? What is the job of the lungs explain in detail: 34.
