SUMMARY: The summary is to diagnose your patient, research the treatment, and prognosis about his remainder of his life.


SYMPTOMS:Adam feels pain in chest,loss of weight even though he is eating properly,and feels like he has no energy.
DIAGNOSIS: Adam has asthma,a condition that affects a person's bronchial tubes (brochial tubes become narrow or swollen) to make it hard to breathe.
TREATMENT:Mr.Sandlot should get a ProAir HFA Inhalation Aerosol,quit smoking,and stop exercising frequently.
PROGNOSIS:Adam Sandlot will live a normal life but he must quit smoking and exercising too much.


1. The team had to decide the disease, and go onto the wiki and repeatedly see if the disease was the right one.
2. The thing that was successful was deciding who’s doing what, and what disease out of the three it wasn’t.
3. The thing that didn’t work out well was deciding if it was Bronchitis, or Asthma.
4. The research helped our team decide which disease it was, because we couldn’t decide if Bronchitis or Asthma had blue lips, but it turned out to be Asthma.
5. In my opinion the best part of the challenge was deciding the disease.
This was a good project, because we had to use our knowledge to find out a disease. Plus it contained a lot of thinking. This was a great challenge, and it was my favorite. One thing that can be improved are the questions, I think that they should be more advanced. Another thing that could be improved is the disease, what I mean is that maybe it could be harder to diagnose the patient.




NAME OF CHALLENGE:Your Gross and Cool Body

SUMMARY: Our group had to go to wikispace to
copy and paste all the information we found. We had to edit all the information
we wrote.


Lungs- Organs that bring oxygen into the body and remove carbon dioxide.
Resperation- The process by which organisms get and use oxygen.
Respitory System- The group of organs that bring oxygen into the body and remove carbon dioxide.
Blood Vessel- Hollow tubes that carry blood through the body.
Blood- Fluid that carries food and oxygen to cells of the body.
Vein – Blood vessels that carry blood to the heart from the body.


  • All the cells in your body require oxygen. Without it, they couldn't move, build, reproduce, and turn food into energy.
  • Outside, where the air pressure is greater, you suck in air in an inhale. The air then expands your lungs like a pair of balloons. When your diaphragm relaxes, the cavity inside your body gets smaller again.
  • About 20 times a minute, you breathe in. When you do, you inhale air and pass it through your nasal passages where the air is filtered, heated, moistened and enters the back of the throat.
  • Your air sacs bring new oxygen from air you've breathed to your bloodstream.
  • You don't have to tell your lungs to keep working. Your brain does it automatically for you.
· The lungs are like stretchy bags. They are filled with millions of tiny pockets of air called alveoli
· It passes through the back of the nose and mouth and through the voice box. It then enters a system of tubes that leads to the alveoli in the lungs. These tubes are a lot like a tree, which divides into branches and twigs.
  • Your lungs contain almost 1500 miles of air ways and over one million alveoli.
  • Every minute you breath in 13 pints of air.
  • Plants are our partners in breathing.We breath air, use oxygen in it, and release carbon dioxide. Plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Thank goodness!

· In order to give oxygen to the blood and remove carbon dioxide, the lungs must bring in fresh air and get rid of old air. Fresh air is brought in when the muscles in the chest wall cause the lungs to increase in size. When the muscles relax, the lungs become smaller again. Air flows out into the surrounding air.
· Blood that has no oxygen in it is pumped by the heart into the walls of the alveoli. These walls are so thin that oxygen and carbon dioxide move through them easily. Oxygen passes from the alveoli to the blood. The blood travels back to the heart. The oxygen-filled blood is then pumped back to the different parts of the body.

· As blood flows through the lung sit picks up oxygen from the air. The body needs oxygen to live. The blood also gets rid of a gas called carbon dioxide

The lungs are passive bags that cannot expand of their own accord.

Our respiratory system gets oxygen into our body and removes carbon dioxide.

The lung activates are to, inhale and exhale.

Cells need a nonstop supply of oxygen to release the energy that keeps them alive.

To breath, air must be moved in and out of the lungs by breathing.

I think this challenge was a little difficult. We had trouble getting to different places but, we helped each other, so I think we got the hang of it. The good thing is, we put everything on the wiki. We each saved it. We worked together and we got it.

Challenge 2:

Name of Challenge:Who Are You
Today's Date:3/31/11
Summary of Challenge:You have to make a badge so people know who you are.




Our group is very cooperative, and we had a little trouble finding our pictures. But we'll do better next challenge.
