Imagine a Place...
Where the gloom of the night turns into the uplifting breeze of the morning
The colors never look the same
and where Mother Nature is smiling looking down on it
Organisms we saw
Energy is measured in calories
Did you know that our bodies create about a gallon of mucus in just two days! I do. In fact, I know a lot of other interesting information, and YOU WILL TOO if you read my paper! Within this document, you will find six different body system essays. These six essays focus on the muscular, skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems, which all work together to operate our body. All of these systems have different components, each with their own unique functions that help to keep us alive. However each system cannot operate alone - they need each other to be successful. For example, the nutrients gathered by the digestive system get distributed throughout the body in the circulatory system! Over the previous 12 weeks, we gathered information about each system, organized our thoughts, and paraphrase what trusted websites taught us about each system. We worked with responsibility partners and our papers definitely benefited from the collaboration. Just like each human body system needs to rely on the other systems, we relied on each other to improve our writing and our process. The following is the result of our hard work...Skeletal System:
Our skeletal system is made up of 206 bones. These bones work together to provide our body with support so that we can stand, help us move so we can walk around, and protect our vital organs like our heart and our brain! Our bones even make and store blood cells for our circulatory system! Without our bones, we would be nothing more than a pile of skin, organs, and muscles on the floor. We wouldn’t be able to move and our organs wouldn’t be safe!
Our bones are made up of many layers. These layers are important because we need our bones to be strong, yet lightweight. In order to achieve this goal, the outside layer of bone is made up of solid compact bone that makes our body strong and dense. The next layer of bone is called cancellous (a.k.a. spongy bone). This layer allows our bones to be lightweight and transitions us from compact bone into bone marrow. Bone marrow is a thick and spongy section in the middle of bone where red and white blood cells are formed. Finally, our bones are all covered in a thin membrane called periosteum which is where our muscles attach to bones. So that is how bones are structured in order to keep our bodies strong, yet lightweight!
Although bones are extremely important, but...
So Mars has a lot of stuff that earth doesn't, some may be good and others may be bad. Something that I'm sort of stressing out about is that if we don't land our spaceship perfectly then we would completely just blow up. I'm trusting Mohamed Farooqui the first Marocan pilot to land us safely and not kill us. One other thing that is really freaking me out is that there are literally zapping rays on mars. So wish me luck, Chow.
