In our last literature class the teacher asked us to do some research on Edith Wharton, who wrote The Moving Fingers. I worked with Mora Malenchini.
The Moving Finger
- Author: Edith Wharton.

- She was from New York
- She was best known for her stories and novels about the upper-class society into which she was born.
- She criticized novels
- This story is gothic and explores the Uncanny” means that it explores something familiar that becomes strange or mysterious and that is difficult or impossible to explain.
- Plasma (liquid part of the blood)
- red and white cells are carried in plasma
- Plasma is mostly water
- Plasma carries nutrients suck as Glucose, amino acids and mineral lons, also hormones and Carbon Dioxide.
Red Blood Cells
- are made in the Bone Marrow
- They do not live long
- They also don’t have a nucleus
- They contain pigment hemoglobin that carries oxygen
White Blood Cells

- They can move around easily
- They clean up the body
Phagocytes and platelets

Before this presentation, the only thing I knew was that blood was made in the bone marrow. Now I know a lot more, for example: Plasma, White cells, Red cells, Phagocytes and platelets, etcetera.
