Just like the first writing day, the purpose of this day is to help students synthesize everything that they have learned about the urinary system and teach back what they have learned. This lesson could be split up across two lessons if desired - one day working on the paragraph writing and one day working on the poster. Although, there is less content on this day so it could be condensed to one day.
