Part 1

  1. Where are you found?
  2. What do you do?
  3. What do you look like?
  4. Why does the host need you?
  5. What would happen if we didn’t have the enterocytes
  6. do we divide? what rate?


I am snug little cell relaxing on the lining of the small intestine. I am an here in the intestine with many of my small brothers and sisters. I just sit here while all of the food is coming. We go and suck the nutrients from our food the person eats. We have a small hole in out rectangle shaped body. We help the body stay alive and get the amount of nutrients to the body so we can all stay alive. If we never existed in the body the owner could be in some really big trouble. He/she would have a higher chance of getting oral diseases. This means that the person could get bone, teeth and gum decay. We divide many times till we stop growing. once going we don’t but we are the most efficient at transporting all of the nutrients.

This is what enterocytes look like.

Part 2

  1. I needed to research a bunch of questions only a few of them were super important though the ones I have chosen are in part 1
  2. As I was working I used some sites. I used google (Never wiki) to look up info and I also looked at open clip art library to get my picture.
  3. The process I tried to use was the ask,acquire,analyze, apply and assess. make sure to check multiple sites to see if they have the same type of information. If not don’t use that point.
  4. I used easy bib to verify the sites because it shows the author, etc.
  5. Yes I could have done this better. In my mind I think I should have looked at more sites then just the few I did. I think that because I think I should be able to find more info then just on those few pages.
