Teacher's Request: Hello, I am looking for resources related to interactions of organ systems both in humans and in marine life. I teach a marine science course to 8th grade students. Although the TEKS have changed, this year's group of students still needs to learn how organ systems interact. I would like to combine this concept with a comparative anatomy lesson in marine science.
