For my project I did the Lymphatic System with Devlin and Eamon. In this project I discovered lots of new things. Before this project I did not know that there was a lymphatic system. The sections that we had to find out about our project were: Future, care, problem and description. We also had to include a working 3D model of our system. In the problem section we had to find out what diseases can occur in the lymphatic system. In future we had to predict what we thought was going to happen. In care we had to find out what was good and what exercises we had to do. The last section was description in description we had to describe how the lymphatic system works.
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and organs. Your lymphatic system is part of your immune system and our immune system protects us against any diseases that we can get. Lymph is a clear watery liquid that travels through the body. The tonsils and spleen are all part of the lymphatic system. Some good exercises that you can do are laughing. The lymph moves around the body by you moving your arms and legs.
Muscular System-Alex, Ore and Ignacia
Muscles are very important because without your muscles you would not be able to walk. Muscles are all around your body even in the heart the muscles in your heart are called cardiac muscles. Cardiac muscles are soft muscles. Muscles are controlled by signals in the brain. The brain will tell your muscle when to move. Your muscles are not the same size they vary in width and length.
Endocrine System- Madeline, Ben and Imran
In 1885 Clord Bernard made a huge discovery it was that the human body had an endocrine system. In the endocrine system there are glands which produce hormones. Hormones travel all throughout our body they also help our body grow. Some things that are good for the endocrine system are broccoli and cauliflower.
Circulatory System-Theo, Ece and Afrah
William Harvey was the first person to make a discovery of the circulatory system. The circulatory system consists of mainly veins and your blood. Your blood is made in your bone marrow. Your veins take blood to your heart which pumps it all through your body. You veins are blue because there is not much oxygen where your veins are. Your heart can pump 70 times per minute. Your blood will take only 20 seconds to travel through the whole body.
Digestive System- Julian, Ella and Eden
The digestive system is were all of your food is broken down into tiny little monocles. It takes 1 and a half hour to break down your food. Your stomach can hold at least 4 litres of food. Your food has to travel down the oesophagus and your saliva makes this process easier. Your oesophagus is at least 25cm long. Your liver can be damaged easily so it is protected by your rib cage.
Skeletal System-Jack, Bryn and Chloe
The skeletal system has approximately 236 bones and 206 different bones. The skeletal system is a very important system because it protects all our vital organs. Your bones have an inside and outside layer and they are mostly made up of cartilage. Not all of our bones are the same length in size and width. If you eat lots of calcium then you will get very strong bones.
Urinary System-Shakira, Tommy and Isabel
The urine system is were all your unwanted wast goes. Urine is mostly made up of salt and water. You have two kidneys one is near your backbone and one is at the front. Ancient Romans used to use urine as invisible ink. Kidneys stones are were you get little crystalized bits of calcium in your kidneys and you have to undergo surgery to get them out.
Nervous System- Zoe, Matthias and Lilly
The nervous system consists of blue and red cells (but they are mainly blue), spinal cord and the brain. You would not be able to walk if you did not have a spinal cord or a brain because your spinal cord keeps you up straight and your brain sends massages to your legs and arms to start too moving. Charles Ball discovered the nervous system in 1742. Epilepsy, Multiple Scleroses and pancreas disease are all the problems you can have with your nervous system.
Respiratory System-Bailey and Thomas
The respiratory system consists of the lungs, bronchi trees, nose, and mouth and trachea/wind pipe. Your lungs develop before you are born. In the future doctors may use a 3d printer to make replica lungs. Your heart grows on top of your lungs. Some of the problems are: asthma, lemonier, lung cancer and emphaziemer.
I have learnt a lot about all the projects and I am sure everyone else has. I think all of the projects were very clear and had a lot of information. I liked the 3d working models I think they showed a lot of what there project was about.
