Welcome to the Human Body wiki for science students from Hawkesdale P12 College, Australia and Mr Gerald Ardito's class in New York, U.S.A.

Your task is to design a "Super Athlete" - research the physical and mental characteristics of elite athletes and design one that will be successful in your chosen sport. You can present your work as a poster, PowerPoint or video interview.

Student task sheet here:

When students from both coutries have finished their project, we will compare the "Super Athletes" from different sports.

The Australian Football League are holding a competition for school students from year 3 to year 10 in four different Key Learning Areas. The Science competition asks students to design the AFL ‘Super Player’, incorporating the physical and mental qualities of the best players of the game. Students should produce an annotated poster showing the selected anatomy of the league’s finest goal kickers, high markers and couragous defenders. The competition closes on Friday 23rd October.

Perhaps we could compare the finest US 'Superplayers' from basketball, baseball or rugby, with an AFL 'Superplayer'??
