The Skin
The skin is a very important and interesting
organ to learn about. The skin is the largest
organ. The skin is a very flexible organ. The
human skin has many layers. Your skin gives you
the ability to feel things. The human body has
many features and the skin is just one of the
many. The skin is one of the most important
organs in our bodies. There are three layers of
skin, the epidermis, the dermis, and the
hypodermis. The skin protects from the suns
harmful rays. It keeps us hydrated by preventing
fluid loss. The skin also produces vitamin D to
maintain strong bones. Healthy hint Do not stay
in the sun to long without suntan lotion.
The Skeleton System
  • The skeleton system is very important to the
    human body. When youre a baby you have over 300
    hundred bones in your body. The spine forms from
    curves. Calcium helps build up your bones and can
    prevent you from breaking your bones. Your bones
    protect your organs. The bones are very important
    to the human body.
  • The skeleton has three major jobs, to protect
    the vital organs, gives us our shape, also allows
    to move and walk. When you are born you have
    around 350 bones in your body. When you are a
    adult you will only have 206 bones in your body.
    When you get older some bones will join together.
    Our bones are held together by strong stretchy
    bands called ligaments.
The Skeleton System
  • Bones are living tissues that rebuild constantly
    throughout your life. During childhood and your
    teens, your body adds new bone mass faster than
    it removes old bone. After about age 20, you can
    lose bone faster than you make bone. A major
    disease affecting your bones is Osteoporosis.
    Osteoporosis, literally means porous bones, and
    is a disease that causes the bones in our body to
    become fragile and prone to break. Osteoporosis
    is a major public health threat for an estimated
    44 million Americans, or 55 percent of the people
    50 years of age and older.
  • To have strong bones when you are young, and to
    prevent bone loss when you are older, follow
    these guides
  • eating a well-balanced diet rich in calcium and
    vitamin D
  • participating in regular exercise
  • taking safety precautions to protect your bones
    and prevent falls
  • avoiding excessive dieting and excessive thinness

The Nervous System
Nervous tissue is made of two main cells neurons
and glial cells. Neurons send nerve messages.
When you are born you have over the number of
nervous cells than all the stars in the
sky. Nervous cells send shock waves through your
body when you are getting injured, so the nervous
cells can protect you being seriously hurt. As
you can see the nervous system is very important
to the human body. The nervous system of an
organism is a network of cells made to process
information and cause reactions in the body
parts .
The Nervous System
  • In the human body the nervous system has two main
    parts, the central nervous system and the
    peripheral nervous system. The central nervous
    system consists of the brain and spinal chord.
    The peripheral nervous system consists of all the
    neurons in the body. Healthy hint Eat foods with
    calcium in them.
The Human Muscles
  • The muscles in the human body are very important
    to use. You need your muscles to be able to
    stretch and bend your body. Your muscles can get
    stressed and strained. Your muscles can grow if
    you exercise. One of your muscles are the bicep,
    the bicep is the muscle that is near the Humurous
    (bone). There are many muscles in the human body
    and they are all very important.

The human muscles are in mostly every part of the
body. There are more than 650 individual muscles
in the human body. Muscle cells contain
contractile filaments that move past each other
and change the size of the cell. They are
classified as skeletal, cardiac, or smooth
muscles. Their function is to produce force and
cause motion.
Healthy hint exercise daily.
The Digestive System
  • The Digestive System is very important to the
    human body . The digestive system is a series of
    organs and glands that process food. In order to
    use the food we eat, our body has to break the
    food down into smaller molecules that it can
    process. It also has to excrete waste. In all
    there are about 30 feet of these convoluted pipe
    works, starting with the mouth and ending with
    the anus.

The digestive system is made out of several
hollow organs, mouth, esophagus, stomach, small
intestine, large intestine, and anus. On the way
the food is broken down, sorted, and reprocessed
before being circulated around the body to
nourish and replace cells and supply energy to
our muscles. For a person to stay healthy,
proper functioning of the digestive systems is
necessary. Healthy hint Eat right and not fast.
The Digestive System
  • The human digestive system is a complex series of
    organs and glands that processes food. In order
    to use the food we eat, our body has to break the
    food down into smaller molecules that it can
    process it also has to excrete waste. Most
    Digestive organs are tube-like shaped and
    contains food as it makes it way through the
    body. The Digestive System is a long, twisting
    tube that runs from the mouth to the anus plus a
    few other organs that produce or store digestive
  • The digestive process begins in the mouth. Food
    is partly broken down by the process of chewing
    and by the chemical. After being chewed and
    swallowed, the food enters the esophagus. The
    esophagus is a long tube that runs from the mouth
    to the stomach. It uses rhythmic, wave-like
    muscle movements (called peristalsis) to force
    food from the throat into the stomach. This
    muscle movement gives us the ability to eat or
    drink even when we're upside-down. action of
    salivary enzymes.

The Respiratory System
  • The respiratory system is very important to the
    human body. The Respiratory System has many
    organs that work together to move oxygen through
    the body to help us breathe. When air passes
    through the nose to the nasal passages called the
    windpipe, it gets filtered, moistened, and
    heated. The lungs are the main part of the
    respiratory, which enables the exchange of oxygen
    and carbon dioxide in the blood. With out the
    Respiratory System we would not be able to
    breathe. http//
  • The Respiratory System has many functions that
    are vital to the human body. Every minute we
    breathe, we take in 13pints of air. We breathe
    about 9 to 20 times every minute. We inhale and
    exhale about 22,000 times per day and in the
    process, transport about 300 cubic feet of air.

The Respiratory System
  • Asthma is a long standing (chronic) disease.
    When you have asthma, your airways are over
    sensitive and inflamed. The tubes that carry air
    into the lungs are called airways or bronchioles.
    They are more sensitive in people with asthma.
    They react to asthma triggers such as colds,
    cigarette smoke and exercise faster and more
    strongly than normal airways.
  • More than 2,000,000 people have learned to manage
    their asthma at home.
  • Healthy hint when you have asthma always carry
    an inhaler.

The Heart
  • The Heart is one of the most important organs in
    the human body. Your heart is located in the
    center of your chest between your lungs. An
    adults heart is the size of a fist. It is
    important to eat healthy meals and exercise
    regularly. If you keep your body in good health
    it makes the heart a more efficient organ.
  • The human heart beats about 50 to 100 times each
    minute for a total of 100,000 times a day. An
    adult heart pumps about 5 quarts of blood each
    minute. That is almost 2,000 gallons of blood
    each day. A mans heart weighs about 10 ounces.
    Without the heart no one would be able to survive.

The Heart
  • Heart disease is a common cause of death for many
    people. More than 24 million people have heart
    disease and more than 900,000 people die from
    heart disease each year.
  • Fortunately there are many ways to prevent heart
    disease and live longer
  • No Smoking or tobacco
  • Regular exercise at least 30 minutes per day
  • Eat a heart-healthy
  • Maintain a healthy weight

The Circulatory System
  • The Circulatory System is very important to the
    human body. The Circulatory System is responsible
    for transporting materials throughout the entire
    body. It transports nutrients, water, and oxygen
    to all of your body cells. The Circulatory has
    three major parts, the Heart, the Blood, and the
    Blood Vessels. Without the Circulatory System we
    would not be able to live.
  • The circulatory system is very interesting to
    learn about. It passes nutrients, gases,
    hormones, blood cells, etc. to and from cells to
    fight diseases and help keep body temperature
    stabile. The main parts of the circulatory system
    are the heart, the blood, and the blood vessels.
    Also, the digestive system works with the
    circulatory system to provide the nutrients the
    system needs to keep the heart pumping.
  • Healthy hint Do not eat a lot because it makes
    the blood travel slower through your body.

  • Circulatory System- The bodily system consisting
    of the heart, blood vessels, and blood that
    circulates blood throughout the body, delivers
    nutrients and other essential materials to cells,
    and removes waste products.
  • Glial cell- Any of the cells making up the glia,
    such as the star shaped cells called astrocytes
  • Neurons cell- A cell of the nervous. Neurons
    carry and transmit electrical signals throughout
    the nervous system.
  • Esophagus- The muscular tube that connects the
    mouth to the stomach and serves as a passageway
    for food.
  • Hypodermis- A subcutaneous layer of loose
    connective tissue containing a varying number of
    fat cells.
