The human body is composed of interactive systems. Most
organs in the body are necessary, a few like tonsils are not. There
are specific functions for each of the organs in the systems, but they
cannot operate by themselves.
Below is a chart that will help you review the different systems
with your students.
||lungs, nasal passages, bronchi, pharynx, trachea, diaphragm,
||intake of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide from body
||spinal cord, brain, nerves, skin, eyes, ears, tongue, nose
||control of body activities and the reaction to stimuli
||stomach, liver, teeth, tongue, pancreas, intestine, esophagus
||break down of food and absorption for use as energy
||kidneys, bladder ureters, skin
||controls water and salt balance
||pituitary gland, adrenal gland, thyroid gland, gonads
||production of hormones and body regulation
|skeletal and muscular
||protection and movement
||blood, blood vessels, heart, lymph
||transport of nutrients, metabolic wastes, water, salts, and disease
||protection of body from injury and bacteria, maintenance of tissue
moisture, holds receptors for stimuli response, body heat regulation
- Use the worksheet to have students identify
the different systems of the body.
- Sing or read Skeletal Hip Hop with students. Go over the
integration of the vocabulary with the rhyme. You may want
students to try and create their own song or poem to go along with some
the information they learned by comparing the different systems.
You may want to just do 2 or 4 lines and then make a class bone of the
