Body Systems and Their Functions · Organ Systems - There are 11 different organ systems in the human body. These include the (1) Integumentary (Skin); (2) Muscular; (3) Skeletal; (4) Nervous; (5) Endocrine; (6) Circulatory; (7) Lymphatic; (8) Respiratory; (9) Digestive; (10) Urinary; and (11) Reproductive. o Integumentary System – This system includes skin and hair as organs. The skin protects all of the other organs of the body from attack by germs and viruses, and helps the body to minimize water loss. Hair helps to protect the body from heat loss and protects the skin from ultraviolet rays (sunburn). o Muscular System – This system includes muscles as an organ. There are three kinds of muscle tissue: skeletal muscles that move the skeleton, smooth muscles are provide control and movement in other organs, and cardiac muscles that pump blood through the heart. In addition, the connective tissue (tendons) connects muscles to bones. o Skeletal System – This system includes bones and joints as organs. This system protects vital organs of the body, such as the lungs, heart, brain and spinal cord, and provides support for all of the organ systems. By working with the muscular system, it also allows the body to move, secure food and protect itself. o Nervous System – This system includes the brain, spinal cord and nerves as organs. It receives information from all the other body organs and then directs each organ how to operate as a team. o Endocrine System – This system includes the pancreas and pituitary gland. It controls homeostasis (under direction from the nervous system) by releasing hormones that control chemical reactions in the body. o Circulatory System – This system includes the heart, veins and arteries as organs. o Lymphatic System – This system includes the spleen and thymus. It removes dead cells and foreign bodies from body fluids. o Respiratory System – This system includes the lungs and trachea as organs. It takes oxygen from the air and transfers it into the blood stream, and takes carbon dioxide from the blood stream and exhales it out of the body.

LECTURE OUTLINE - UNIT 1 The Human Body: An Orientation
[*The following lecture outline follows your textbook very closely; read the outline and the
associated sections in Chapter 1 of your textbook (at the same time); be sure to view the figures
and tables in the book (shown in this outline in parentheses); there is a lot of material in the
textbook that we do not have time to cover in this course, or will cover later on; please read this

published Health standards require second grade students to explore the body systems, individual organs, nutrition, and its effect on the human body as part of the curriculum. This project not only gives the students the opportunity to learn the names of the systems, organs, and their functions, they have the chance to put their newly gained knowledge into practice.

The Human Body
Overview of Unit
The Human Body unit is designed to lay a foundation for individual learning and awareness of each child’s individual needs as a learner by presenting an understanding of what is required to maintain life, how the body systems support each other, and how the systems support the brain. After learning the parts of the brain, students will be introduced to the multiple intelligences. Students will evaluate themselves to determine their own “smart.” Then, they…
exercise and diet go hand in hand and are equally important in this instance.)
Whether chemotherapy or radiation therapy, even these cures for cancer are brutal on the human body.
The word cancercancer:
A group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells in the body. is derived from the name of a mythological crab who was sent by a jealous god on several occasions to harass the hero Hercules. Eventually, Hercules crushed the crab under his heel…
REPRESENTATION OF THE HUMAN BODY
Depict, to represent or show in a form of art. How do cultures depict the human form? What do these depictions tell us about the value of these cultures? There are different views on the human form in ancient arts. The Indian view of art and their sculptures was the link between the body and the natural world. The main focus of Greek sculptures is the human form. Certain sculptures represented or played a political or religious part in their society.

The Human Body: It’s Structure and Operation
In The Human Body: Its Structure and Operation, the author, Isaac Asimov, talks
about where humans as a species come from and where we fall in the universe. He also
discusses how the human body is a single structure made up of cells, tissues, organs,
and systems. He further explains how these different parts work together to comprise
the body and how the body functions and maintains itself. In his book, Asimov…
tends to be course, stays close to the scalp in a long “S”-shaped curl and doesn’t usually have a lot of body. This type is very easy to handle, pliantly blowing out into a straighter style or taking on curlier looks with relative ease.
The next hair type is curly. It is unique, fine and soft with a “Q”-shaped pattern. This hair doesn’t tend to have a lot of sheen, but has tons of body. It also tends to look straight when wet, but has curls as it dries. I know lots of people with this type…
Systems of the Human Body
There are many systems in the human body. These systems include the circulatory system, respiratory system, immune system, skeletal system, excretory system, urinary system, muscular system, endocrine system, digestive system, nervous system and the reproductive system. I will give the basics on each system.
The circulatory system includes the heart and blood vessels. It pumps blood to the body which sends oxygen to the cells and takes away waste. The respiratory system…

ASC3471 Physiology of Flight
Mr. Kirk Webster
As far as any one individual can remember, as a child they loved going fast. There is that brilliance of feeling oneself being propelled forward, and their weight being caressed in a seat. This is a sensation felt in many vehicles, cars, high speed motor boats, motorcycles and last but not least the aircraft and spaceship.
In the world of flying…

Purpose and Functions
The main purpose of the respiratory system is to deliver
oxygen to the body and to take away carbon dioxide.
Some other functions of this system includes voice
production, body temperature and acid-base regulation,
and the sense of smell.
Nose: where air is inhaled and exhaled
Pharynx: tubular part which allows the passage of air into lungs
Epiglottis: flap-like structure which prevents…
