And diagram B. had large vacuole in its cells, which again a plant has and the animal cells would only have small vacuole. 10. Reproduction, because an individual can’t die if it doesn’t reproduce.

Maggots probably come from other living things, and just happen to eat meat or attract to meat odor. 2. That maggots are not alive because of spontaneous generation. Pg. 13- Question Set 2 1. D. An Organ System 2. B. A Tissue 3. C. Nerve NJASK Science Preparation Assignment Name: Caroline Burns Date: 4/1/11 4. B. CellTissueOrganOrgan System 5. A. Skeletal 6. C. Muscular 7. The skeletal system because it supports and protects the body. 8. I go to the lungs, so I can get the oxygen out of the air. Then I travel to the heart. This is so the blood can carry the oxygen around the body to which cells need it. Say it is my leg; my leg cells will get the oxygen and will use it all up. Then the blood cells will come back around and take the waste, and will bring it back to the lungs. This is where we will exhale and all the waste will come out of our body. 9. Cells, tissues, and organs in a multicellular organism have to work together because if they don’t the organism won’t function properly. They all help each other perform their job correctly.
