Now go back and pick one part of each organ’s structure that helps it do it’s job.

  • Click back on the links and reread the text. Copy the table above and complete the blank column with a description of this structure.

Now we know the “job” of each of these organs and how its “shape” helps it do its job.

  • Copy the sentences on the following slide into your notebook and use the information from the first two tables you already completed.
