LI: To learn about the different body systems. 
We had to do a quiz with our inquiry group this is all the information. This term LS1 got ready for the big quiz at the end of the term. We did all these tasks and earnt all these credits in our groups. We had to get the credits by doing tasks based on what organ system we are doing. The topic was about organ systems in our bodies. We first learnt the nervous system. The nervous system is a system that makes up of different organs and parts. They are the nerves, neurons, Central nervous system, Peripheral Nervous system, brain, brainstem, spinal cord, autonomic and somatic. The Central nervous system and the Peripheral Nervous system have different parts. Another way to say them is CNS and PNS. CNS include the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord. The peripheral includes the nerves autonomic and somatic. After the nervous system was the digestive. This was my favourite part. This includes the Mouth, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, appendix, rectum, and the anus. It includes what you eat. This system helps you gain nutrients. These all make up the Digestive system.  The respiratory system includes the lungs, Trachea, Bronchi, Bronchioles, Alveoli. This is the system that helps your body and body organs have oxygen. Then the Circulatory system the heart pumps blood through blood vessels arteries. Heart is the only organ in circulatory system. Arteries take blood away from heart,veins bring blood to the heart.capillaries are  very tiny after arteries they go everywhere in body thats where muscles get oxygen and nutrients organs pass carbon dioxide through capillaries. There are 4 main vessel of the heart they are,SVC (Superior vena cava), Pulmonary Artery,Pulmonary vein & Aorta. Main artery coming out heart is the aorta.
