I was also the Work Documenter which made it so I did most of the checkpoints. What I learned from this benchmark is how to make an aquaponics system. The other thing I learned is all the steps that go into getting an aquaponics system to work, and how it will function.
For the biochem project, we had to dissect a frog and a worm then we had to make a project about how humans, frogs, and worms are similar and different. In my group, it was Layla, Dale, and Bella. Then we had to pick another animal and we chose a tiger. In our project, we chose to do the digestive system and tell how it worked and what we did. We found out that we have more things in common with worms, frogs, and tigers than we thought we did. Here are some pictures of my project.

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 .

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.
