1. Which joint did you choose as our most important joint?
2. Why did you choose that joint?
3. What things would be difficult to do without that joint?
4. What movement can be done without the use of joints? (Example: blinking your eyes)
1. The jaw. I mean, if you don't have a jaw, it's impossible to eat and swallow foods. Later on if you starve to death you will die. I don't know if you can drink fluids without a jaw but that would be terrible if you couldn't drink fluids without a jaw.
2. I chose that joint because you couldn't eat mouth - watering foods and ice cream. I'm not 100% sure about this but you couldn't drink fluids.
3. It would be difficult to talk, eat, drink, and open your mouth. All of these things make you have a successful life and be happy.
4. A movement that can be done without using joints is looking around a room.
On the left is my preference of what bones or body parts are the hardest to survive without and the least hardest to survive without. ( Top to bottom.)
Observation 1: I saw Cassidy taking short steps because Cassidy wanted to conserve energy. She knew that it takes a while to type down observations so she knew she had to conserve energy.
Observation 2: I saw Cassidy's Arms pumping because it keeps your body balanced and allows you run faster. Pumping your arms also makes you run in a straight line and when running in place, you have to go or be straight in place.
Observation 3: I saw Cassidy breathing heavily because when exercising, you need more blood pumped around your body and when you get tired, you need to breathe heavy to provide your heart to pump more blood.
Observation 4: I saw Cassidy's hair waving around because she is moving up and down so the motion makes her hair go up and down.
Observation 5: I saw Cassidy's knees bending because when you run, a bunch of body parts bend including the knees.
Observation 6: I felt very tired after jumping jacks because fatigue was setting in and I was exercising.
Observation 7: I saw Cassidy is feeling hot from exercising so she took off her sweatshirt because when we are exercising, the sweat we produce releases heat.
Observation 8: Cassidy is very tired after both running in place and jumping jacks because when you exercise, you mostly fell fatigue, hot, sweaty, and dehydrated.
Observation 9: My legs felt a little sore after exercising because I really don't do that much jumping jacks, and when you try out a new exercise, your muscles tend to feel sore.
Observation 10: I felt my heart beating like crazy after doing both exercises after three minutes straight because your body needs more oxygen and blood so your heart pumps more blood in your body and produces the right amount of oxygen.

Imagine that you suddenly shrunk to one inch tall and you're about to climb over the backpack that you just drew. Write a story about your adventure, making sure to focus in on ALL the small details of the backpack and your experiences while climbing. You are FOCUSing on a perspective in this writing piece, so I should feel like you are tiny throughout the whole story.
This is like Mount Everest but orange all over. I need to get to the top of that backpack and see what’s inside the open pocket. Alright, where should I start my adventure…. ohh! Perfect. The one inch tall Brady was staring at a mesh pocket on the side of the backpack. Brady chose this because he could use the really tiny holes through the mesh pocket as grip. Brady stared up at the top of the pocket mesh. It looked like 1000 feet to him, but only a foot for the average human being. Brady started his journey to the top of the pocket mesh, wich was only ⅙ of the way to the very top. Brady was moaning, and fatigue was setting in the farther and farther he went. The face of Brady was looking like he was hungry to get to the top of the pocket mesh. The great perseverance of this little young boy led him to the top of the pocket mesh. The great boy started cheering but then looked at the top of the backpack. After what it felt like to him 5 hours, he still had a long way to go. Brady was thinking of ideas, the only good idea he could think of was jumping to a zipper and using it as some sort of rope. Brady then thought of doing it and he did. Leaping as far as he could gracefully in the air, Brady successfully leaped to the zipper but then there was a loud ring that repeated three times. " Oh no! here comes the giant! " Big Brady then suddenly picked up his backpack and ran to the door with small Brady hanging on for dear life.
I will be describing the strap on my backpack.
