Let's go with Sensitivity and coordination


La unidad que presento titulada "Sensitivity and coordination" está dirigida a sexto de primaria dentro de la materia de Conocimiento del Medio.
Es una unidad didáctica temporalizada para una quincena, realizándose tres sesiones de cincuenta minutos en cada una de ellas. Dicha unidad trabaja el tema de la relación y la coordinación, siendo una unidad muy interactiva, en la cual aparecen los mapas conceptuales como forma esencial de trabajar los contenidos y las exposiciones de los mismos, a la ver que presentaciones con YouTube por parte del alumnado así como el trabajo de investigación como parte central del recorrido de nuestra unidad didáctica.  


Entendemos que el libro es otra herramienta más en el trabajo del aula, pero ni la primera ni la central, por lo que fomentamos el trabajo en grupo y cooperativo así como la competencia de aprender a aprender, todo ello utilizando el inglés como vehículo de comunicación en clase, dado que AICLE y el bilingüismo se desarrollan a través de estas consignas así como el uso de las tecnologías tales como ordenadores, proyectores, etc, y de manera muy importante internet y las herramientas que nos proporcionan tales como http://www.worksheetworks.com/miscellanea/graphic-organizers.HTML
Para  concluir, añadir que el trabajo bilingüe, y de manera muy real en esta unidad, no queda relegado a un vocabulario específico de la unidad en cuestión, sino al uso real y de manera trasversal a todas las acciones que se desarrollan a lo largo del trabajo en el aula.

1. Learning outcomes
 / Evaluation criteria
Objectives
·         To understand the stimulus and response concepts.
·         To recognise different kinds of stimuli and responses.
·         To learn the anatomy and basic functioning of the sense organs, identifying them with their external receptors.
·         To know the nervous system and neurone structure.
·         To understand the process of making different kinds of responses.
·         To understand the co-ordination function and its importance in the functioning of the organism.
·         To create a conceptual Map
Evaluation criteria
·         To identify and give examples of different external and internal stimuli.
·         To name the external receptors, identifying them with the corresponding senses.
·         To identify and give examples of different muscular and glandular responses.
·         To describe correctly the components of the central and peripheral nervous system.
·         To describe the process whereby stimuli are received, and responses are prepared and made, at a simple level.
·         To share a conceptual map with the parteners
·         To give a basic description of involuntary movements.
To give and to interpret examples of the co-ordination function and to explain what it consists of.

2. Subject Content
·         Internal and external stimuli.
·         Muscular and glandular responses.
·         Internal and external receptors. Sense organ anatomy and functioning.
·         Parts of the nervous system: Central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
·         Structure of the neurone.
·         Voluntary and involuntary movements: Reflex actions.
·         The co-ordination function.
·         Use of simple, explanatory drawings of the component parts of the nervous system and of a neurone.
·         Recognition of different internal and external stimuli.
·         Preparation of diagrams to explain the process whereby a stimulus is perceived, and a response is prepared and given.
·         Awareness of the importance of caring for the sense organs.
·         Acquisition of healthy habits to do with rest and sleep.
·         Appreciation of the complexity of the nervous system, awareness of the need to look after it for it to work properly.

7. Methodology
Organization and class distribution / timing

This unit comes under the block entitled Health and Personal Development. In it, we describe the function of relationships and learn about the sensory organs, the central and peripheral nervous systems, neurons, and finally, the process through which voluntary and involuntary movements occur, as well as reflexes. Likewise, we review healthy habits to care for our sensory organs.
Timing
This unit corresponds to the second fortnight of the first term. It has an estimated duration of 2 weeks.
