    Extra Credit...........................................
    You can write paragraphs on any life science topic for extra credit.
    For me to accept written work as extra credit, I will need the following:
    1. A list of facts on a topic. (Better yet the facts would be in an outline.)
    2. Compose your own topic sentences that link together your list of facts in a logical way.
    3. Written paragraphs composed by you that contain these topic sentences and facts.
    One way to write paragraphs on a topic is to:
    1. Create a list of question about the topic.
    2. Collect facts that answer these questions.
    3. Create topic sentences that group and link the facts you collected in a way that makes sense.
    4. Write a paragraph that includes the topic sentences and their related facts.
    1. For example, a list of questions might look like this:
    What is the organ's importance?
    Where is the organ located in the body?
    What is the organ's structure or parts?
    What organ system is it part of?
    What is the organ's function in its organ system?
    What is the organ's relationship or connections to other organs?
    What are some diseases related to the organ?
    What are some health practices can keep the organ healthy?
    2. Make a list of facts that answers each of the above questions?
    3. Compose topic sentences that group and relate facts that go together.
    4. Compose paragraphs using your topic sentences and their related facts.
    You could use the above as a guide to write about any body part.
    I would give you some points for the list of questions.
    I would give you more points for facts that answer answer your questions.
    Composing topic sentences involves more thinking, so they would earn a greater number of points.
    Composing paragraphs also involves more thinking, so they would earn a greater number of points.

    1. The pharynx is the region in the back of the throat.
    2. The epiglottis covers the trachea when something is swallowed.
    3. The trachea is the “wind pipe” that air travels through to reach the lungs.
    4. The long muscular tube that moves food from the pharynx is the esophagus.
    5. The successive waves of smooth muscle contraction that moves food through the digestive track is called peristalsis.
    6. The mixing of food by stomach contractions continues mechanical digestion.
    7. Hydrochloric acid and the enzyme pepsin chemically breaks down protein in the stomach.
    8. Mucus lubricates the digestive tract and coats the stomach lining to protect it from digestive fluids.
    9. The digestion of carbohydrates and protein is completed in the small intestine.
    10. Fats are digested in the small intestine by enzymes and bile.
    11. Villi line the internal surface of the small intestine, increasing its surface area for absorption.
    12. Nutrients absorbed by the small intestine pass into blood and lymph vessels in the villi.
    13. The small intestine passes undigested material through a valve to the large intestine.
    14. In the large intestine, water and water-soluble vitamins are absorbed from the undigested material.
    15. Once the water has been removed, the solid undigested material is called feces.
    16. The distance food moves through the digestive tract is about 27 feet.
    17. The liver, gallbladder, and pancreas each play a key role in digestion.
    18. The liver further processes carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in the blood.
    19. the liver produces bile for the gallbladder and breaks down toxins.
    20. The gallbladder concentrates bile and delivers it through duct to the small intestine.
    21. The pancreas produces enzymes which are delivered through ducts to the small intestine.
    22. The pancreas also produces insulin which controls sugar in the blood.
