Build a decision tree (sometimes referred to as a flowchart) that would help an unidentified tissue to be identified.  In other words, if you are looking at a picture of an unidentified tissue, what are the questions that you would ask yourself to identify the tissue? 

At the end of this  you should have produced a decision tree that one of your peers could use to identify any of the tissues contained within your reading this week.  You must have a sufficient level of detail to identify individual tissue types (i.e. its not sufficient to identify muscle tissue, your decision tree must distinguish between the three types of muscle tissue).

Each junction/decision point on your tree must have a clear question (for example, does this tissue contain a large amount of extra-cellular matrix?).
