Your assignment is to research the female reproductive system and create a skit or commercial that describes that system. Your skit/commercial should convince the other students in your class of the importance of that body system. You want to “sell” that system. You should describe the function of each major organ/component of your system. You should explain why that body system is essential for supporting life. You should also discuss any problems or diseases that can occur in your system if you don’t take care of your body properly. You will have two days to research your system. You will have one day in class to work on writing the skit or commercial. Any work not completed in class will have to be done on your own time! You may present the skit or commercial live or you may record it and play the video for the class. The commercial should be approximately 5 minutes in length (see rubric).
