Link To Background Information Behind The Model : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rQ0RfATzLBXiIEAiYHJFT_fCRYALypvzQ418cLbR8PM/edit: This project was meant for everyone to show the different species and organ systems that we studied to one another. Bella, Saniiyah, Layla, and I decided that we were going to do the Digestive System from day one. To my knowledge, we chose this, because we wanted to understand and see the similarities/differences between the species systems. The species that we had to research about were humans, worms, frogs, and tigers. What I've learned from doing this benchmark was how to research better and collaborate better, also many things that I didn't know about the species like what they're organs do. Below are our visual images helping you get an understanding while being brought in by the colorfulness of the images. Enjoy!!!
I learned many things such as how the skeletal system helps these living organism and how they have differences and many similarities .
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1021zh1PouXy_RTbSHR81Iwb8D8KOiFhsd4G6MMo1P5E/edit?usp=sharing While studying the Respiratory system of an Orca and comparing it to the Respiratory systems of other animals I noticed a lot of things. I learned that some animals share the same Respiratory organs with other animals. It's crazy how orcas and Humans have the same Respiratory system. When you look at the picture on this post can you tell which one is the Orca's lungs and which one is the Human lung? The Orca's lungs are the right and the Human lungs are on the left.

With all the similar organs we have, you can tell that over time different species were made to suit their environments. from having hearts in different locations to having more streamlined skin to better swimming capabilities. Learning things like this was very helpful in letting me understand the differences and similarities we have with the animals living with us.
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1021zh1PouXy_RTbSHR81Iwb8D8KOiFhsd4G6MMo1P5E/edit?usp=sharing What I learned from this project is that even though animals may look different they have many different qualities that make them come together. With the Respiratory system, Orca's and Humans have the same respiratory system and the same way of getting oxygen through breathing and they have lungs. While Earthworms and Frogs what they have in common are that they both breathe through their skin. I also learned that animals can take aspects from one another and turn it into their way of living, like how Orcas evolved from Hippos but then they turned fully fish and got rid of the fact that they can go on land but then they got a blowhole which allows them to go above land for a short period of time without dying from lack of water. They also have really long lungs that are bigger so they can hold their breath for long periods of time because they stay underwater for a long time. They also only breathe when they want to they can't do it automatically so they don't run out of the water. We made a model of the difference between the human lungs and the Orca's the Orcas re on the left the humans are on the right. We also have 2 other models which are a frog and how it gets oxygen through the skin and a worm.
