Final Circulatory System WordPress Blog Post

a. What aspect of the PBL Body System unit did you enjoy the most and why? I enjoyed putting the actual model together because we got to add all the tubing and the bottles and out them in the correct place.

b. What did you learn about yourself related to how you function in a group? What was your role in the team? I learned that I work well with other people and that it is easier to work with other people than alone on these projects. My role in the team was putting all the tubing together and cutting holes into squeezy bottles but Ella also did the squeezy bottle part too.
c. What would you do differently the next time you have a big project like this assigned to you? I would of not “super glued” everything but instead just glue the things necessary so that their wouldn’t be as many leaks in the final project.
d. Take a few picture of your model, getting all the details documented in the photos?
The blood can circulate around the body if you pump the atriums and ventricles.
