Travel Brochure of the Body Systems
Your team of “travel agents” at the Duodenum Dynamics Ad Agency has been hired
as consultants to design a luxury tour through the Human Body. Before you can collect
your fee, you must produce a brochure for a whirlwind tour through the human
landscape. In order to win the contract, you must highlight the trendy spots, the exciting
activities, and the imports and exports of the regions. For insurance reasons, you must
also discreetly mention any possible dangers or special precautions that tourists might
encounter in visiting these systems. In order to make tourists most comfortable in
enjoying their trips, you should also suggest special equipment necessary for each locale.
Your tour must include visits to the following systems:
 Digestive
 Respiratory
 Skeletal/Muscular
 Nervous
 Excretory
 Circulatory
 Endocrine
 Immune
Product Requirements
1) Each system will be represented by a Tri-fold brochure
a. Include visual elements and TYPED text
b. This is an Individual Requirement
2) Present your tour to the class using Power Point or video (Group Activity)
3) Your goal is to be the team that wins the contract. The winning team will be
decided by a panel of judges (your classmates). Make your brochure and
presentation exciting so your tour will be memorable.
