Cells, tissues, organs, & organ systems

Today I needed to teach the levels of organization in an organism. 
Normally a very dry, notes heavy topic.
But, luckily I work with brilliant teachers who create out of the box labs.
And with the help of a LEGO set my students learned that:
cells join with other like cells to make tissues
and two or more tissues combine to make an organ
multiple organs are joined together to make an organ system
and organ systems must work together to make functional organism
In the words of my students, AWESOME LAB!
