Reproduction

Hi everybody!
We are starting with the new unit: REPRODUCTION and we are going to work this unit in two different ways: 

A. With a VOLUNTARY PROJECT where you will have to put in practice the contents you learned in Naturales.

How? -> in this case we are going to learn a little more about our natural places by investigating different kinds of reproduction in living organisms.

B. We are going to learn about HUMAN REPRODUCTION 

........................................................

VOLUNTARY PROJECT 
So let´s see step by step what we a re going to do:

1. Choose a natural place from Madrid Comunity (if you prefere you could choose a park close to your home). Here are some examples: Lagunas de Belvis, Casa de Campo, Parque del Capricho, El Retiro, La Pedriza, Laguna de Peñalara, Parque Juan Carlos, etc.





 


2. Observe and investigate about 4 species:

They can be from any of the 5 kindoms (animal, plants, fungi, monera or protoctist), but probably it is easier with plants. Some of the questions you could investigate about could be:

- How do they reproduce?

- What type of reproductive organs do they have?
- Are there any differences between the male and female organs?

- How do their seeds look like?
- Do they use any strategy to spread their seeds?

3. Share your investigation results:
To do so you could take your own pictures, find them online or even better, you could bring some examples that you take from the natural place and show them to us in the class.




4. Present your results to the class:
You can make a presentation showing the pictures you took or found. As an example you could follow the next index:




1. Natural place that I chose (where is it?, why did I chose this place?, what kind of ecosystem can we find there?).
2. Species that I chose.
3. Kind of reproduction.
4. Reproduction organs.
5. Seeds and spread.

B. HUMAN REPRODUCTION 

INDEX

1. Introduction (video). 
2. Human reproductive system:

    2.1- Female reproductive system.
    2.2- Male reproductive system.
3. Fertilization
4. Embrionary development - Pregnancy

5. Giving birth

1. Introduction (video). 


    




-------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------
 . Human reproduction system:
  2.1- Female reproductive system.

* External Female reproductive System:

 

* Internal Female reproductive System:









AUTONOMOUS AREA:
Investigate and define the female
reproductive system parts:
+ External: clitoris, labium majora and labium minor.
+ Internal: vagina, uterus, fallipoin tubes and ovaries.

In the following links you will find information related to the human reproduction system. Use the information to complete the drawing with some information when you are with in the autonomus area.


3.  http://kidshealth.org/parent/interactive/mrs_it.html 

Some definitions:
Vagina: the canal that extends from the cervix of the uterus to an external opening between the labia minora.

Uterus: organ where the fertilized ovum implants and develops or rests during prenatal development.




    2.2- Male reproductive system.
Internal and External male reproductive System




Testicles: male reproductive glands, enclosed within the scrotum, which produce sperm and the hormone testosterone.

AUTONOMOUS AREA:


In the following links you will find information related to the human reproduction system. Use the information to complete the drawing with some information when you are with in the autonomus area.

3. Fertilization
:




Sperm being atacked by the inmuno system of the woman




-------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------
4. Embrionary development - Pregnancy

- Pregnancy anatomy


Human developement inside the mothers uterus
(from 0 to 9 months)


-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------
5. Giving birth



AND SOMETHING ELSE ....
