You are an alien. Although different from humans, your tissues and organ structure are similar. This is your chance to get creativebriefly describe your alien and environment (i.e. what do you breathe or eat, do you live in an aquatic environment, etc.)
First describe the function(s) of the organ. To do this, you need to research what Earth organs and tissues would reflect the physiology of your organ (i.e. if your organ allows you to breath underwater, you might research fish gills or if your organ is a pump, you might research human cardiac muscle)
Now, describe the tissues that make up the organ and the function of each tissue. Tissue requirements:
2 epithelial tissues (epithelial tissues line structures, so you should have one on the outside of your organ and one lining the inside)
2 connective tissues
1 muscle tissue
1 nervous tissue
Remember that the tissues you choose must reflect the purpose of the organ (i.e. if it is a filtering organ, you would not choose a stratified epithelial tissue as your filtering layer or if the organ needs to contract, this would be the purpose of the muscle layer)
