LEADER REFLECTION: (VIDEO TO BE INSERTED HERE)

In this challenge our team had to diagnose a patient named Jerry Atrics.Diagnosing the patient was successful because we all agreed on the disease he had. The thing that didn't work out well was that one of our team members didn't save the diagnosis so we had to do it all over again. The research helped the team diagnose the patient becaus we got to know what type of disease our patient had by his symptoms.The best part was that we got to see the video of our patient.

CRITICAL THINKING QUESTION:


The nervous system can protect you from getting hurt by it sending the brain a message to stay away from certain things that are dangerous and that will keep you from harm.

LEADER REFLECTION:


There were only some difficulties because we were missing one person. Going into wiki and taking the notes was successful because we were used to taking notes. My tribe worked as a team because we helped each other when we needed help. My tribe could do better next time by helping each other more and working a little faster.
