Your group represents an organ system, but you have lost one of your organs! You must work together to make a “Missing Organ” poster with the information you fill into this worksheet. Example:

MISSING: HENRY HYPOTHALAMUS
Last seen in Brain City, next to Brain Stem Park Approximately the size of a pearl, but VERY important! The human body cannot survive without it… Needed for Autonomic Function Control, Endocrine Function Control, Bodily Regulation, and Motor Function Control A replacement donor has not yet been found; therefore we NEED to bring Henry Hypothalamus home!

If seen contact the Endocrine System – located primarily in Brain City
