In a brief, one-page essay, tell me what interests you and why you may consider it as a career for yourself. Use terms from the chapter as you research the specific job. There are six “Medical Careers” found within this chapter, but if you prefer you may choose one of 12 throughout the book. (Look at the 2nd page of the book, under “Contents” to find the page where all 12 careers are listed.)

When making your models, use any material available; play-dough, clay, slime, even food! There are great images online (and in the chapter) of the four structures you will create, as well as videos on YouTube for ideas.

The work assigned in the packet will be due April 21st. Please let me know if you have any questions! You may print the handouts or just write your results from your experiments (or math problems) on plain paper to submit; you do not need a printer to complete any of my assignments. Also, I used all of the remaining "Christmas bonus points" in case some of you were wondering why your grade changed a few points. I have attached a link to all of the posted assignments that are not found in your book: LINK

Feel free to search the internet for similar examples that the book details in order to use the materials you have on hand! (Email me a photo and description of your experiment!)
