    Skeletal system

    Supports, protects, produces blood cells, stores minerals

    Bones, cartilage

    Muscular system

    Provides movement

    Muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments - 

    smooth, skeletal, cardiac muscles

    Digestive system

    Processes and breaks down food into nutrients your body can absorb

    Mouth, salivary glands, stomach, liver gallbladder, pancreas, small and large intestine

    Circulatory System/Cardiovascular System

    Transports oxygen, nutrients and waste - helps stabilize body temperature

    Heart, blood arteries, veins,

    Respiratory System

    Gas exchange, delivers oxygen expels carbon dioxide

    Mouth, nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, diaphragm

    Nervous system

    Sends and receives messages

    Brain, spinal cord, nerves, CNS, PNS, eyes, ears, tongue, skin, nose

    Urinary/Excretory System

    Removes, water, waste, salt from blood

    Controls pH

    Kidney, ureters, bladder, urethra


    Defends against infection, disease and moves lymph

    Lymph, lymph nodes, lymph vessels

    Endocrine System

    Provides communication in the body via hormones

    Maintains homeostasis

    Pituitary glands, pineal gland, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas

    Reproductive System

    Different for male and female

    Produces sex cells

    Produces hormones

    Female - fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, ovaries, mammary glands

    Male - testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, penis

    Integumentary System

    Provides protection and aids in homeostasis

    Hair, skin and nails





    Cells make tissues

    Tissues make organs

    Organs make organ systems

    Organ systems make the organism


    Plant systems: 


    • skeletal - stem of a plant (supports and connects)
    • xylem and phloem (circulatory of plants)
    • leaves in a plant (take in CO2 and give off O2)


    Systems we will be focusing on:

    • Skeletal System - Supports and protects soft tissues of the body; provides movement; produces blood cells; and stores minerals - Bones, cartilage, joints, tendons, and ligaments - stem of a plant (supports and connects)
    • Muscular system - Provides movement, support, and heat production - Skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscles 
    • Digestive system - Processes & breaks food down to nutrients your body can absorb  , minerals, vitamins, and water - Mouth, salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine, and large intestine  - 
    • Circulatory system/cardiovascular system - Transports oxygen & nutrients to the cells and transports wastes, carbon dioxide, and other substances away from the cells; it can also help stabilize body temperature - Organs are the Heart, blood, and blood vessels - xylem and phloem (circulatory of plants)
    • Respiratory system - Delivers air to sites where gas exchange can occur - Mouth, nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and diaphragm - leaves in a plant (take in CO2 and give off O2)
    • Nervous system - sends and receives messages   - Brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory organs—eyes, ears, tongue, skin, and nose -  (Central nervous system (CNS) and Peripheral Nervous System (PNS))




    other body systems:

    1. Urinary System/Excretory System – Removes excess water, salts, and waste products from the blood and body and controls pH - Kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra
    2. Lymphatic System/Immune System – Defends against infection and disease and transfers lymph between tissues and the blood stream –Organs include Lymph, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels  
    3. Endocrine System - hormones - Provides communication within the body via hormones and directs long-term change in other organ systems to maintain homeostasis - Pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, pancreas, adrenals.  
    4. Reproductive System – different for both male and females - Produces gametes—sex cells—and sex hormones; ultimately produces offspring - Fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, ovaries, mammary glands (female), testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis (male)  
    5. Integumentary System – skin system, protective cover - involved in temperature control - Skin, hair, and nails.
