Cell Story

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.
