Best Job in the Mattias
I have got the best job in the Mattias! Since forming in the bone marrow I knew that I had a very important job to keep the Mattias healthy but after my first mission of stopping an infected paper cut I realized how fantastic my job was and that it was undoubtedly the greatest job in the Mattias. My job is easy, fun and tasty! When Mattias gets an injury me and my fellow monocytes rush to the seen and start lunch! We get to gobble up all of the pathogens engulfing them like giant Pac-Men. I have an important job keeping the Mattias clear of pathogens but it is also a tasty job. I am a monocyte, the largest white blood cell, I live in the spleen the largest dispatcher of monocytes in the Mattias and I have the best job ever! When I’m Speeding to work through the blood vessels this is what I sing to pump me up: When those pathogens attack! The monocytes don’t cut em’ no slack! Turtle power!
These are the questions I used to create my story
What are monocytes?
Where are they found in the body?
What do they do?
Where does their life start?
Some of the digital tools I used to answer these questions and complete my story were of course Google but I also tried out some new ones: Gale Group and EBSCOhost.
These are links I used to find my info
Assessment of project
This project was fun and I think I did well on certain things like adding my information into the story and I also think I did well when analyzing my information I used all three tools google, gale-group and EBSCO to check the information I had. Some things I could have worked on where asking a few more questions and maybe bigger questions as well I also think I could have made the story a bit more interesting but over all I liked my story and think I did pretty good.
Our task was to compare the dissolving rate between two different types of headache medicines, Advil liquid gel and Tylenol. We were curious about the dissolving rate so that we could observe what medicine worked faster.
Some questions we had to ask before starting our investigation where:
How do these pills normally dissolve?
In stomach acid.
How do the pills get to where they need to go?
These were our results we found.
Our experiment turned out well we had good trials interesting results and we worked well as a team but some things we could have done better such as take more photo’s, make more notes and be a bit more efficient and organized. Over all it was a good first lab with room for improvement.
