       The Integumentary System

The external covering of the body, or the skin
         Protects deeper tissues from injury and microorganisms
         Excretes body waste products through perspiration
         Synthesizes Vitamin D
         Pain receptors
         Helps regulate body temperature
               The Skeletal System

Consist of bones, cartilages, ligaments and joints
          Supports and provides framework to the body
          Hematopoiesis
          Stores minerals
          Protects some organs
              The Muscular System

Allows one’s body to move
          Provides movement
          Helps to circulate blood through the body
          Also provides heat
               The Nervous System

The fast-acting control system of the body
          Control all the activities of the body
          Send signals from one cell to another
             The Endocrine System

Consist of Pitituary gland, Thyroid and Parathyroid glands Adrenal glands, Thymus,
Pancreas, Pineal, Ovaries (F), Testes (M)
          Produce chemical molecules called hormones
          Regulate processes such as growth and reproduction
      The Cardiovascular System

Commonly known as Circulatory System, includes the heart and blood vessels
        Heart pumps the blood
        Vessels transport blood which carries oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients
          and wastes
             The Lymphatic System

Also known as The lymph nodes and Lymphatic vessels
         Picks up fluid leaked from blood vessels and returns it to blood
         Serves as house for white blood cells
         Helps restore fluid lost by the blood and return it to the circulatory
          The Respiratory System

Consist of Nasal passages, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi and lungs
          Keeps the body constantly supplied with oxygen and removes carbon
             The Digestive System

Is basically a tube running through a body from mouth to anus
          Breaks down food into absorbable units
          Eliminates indigestible foods as feces
                The Urinary System

Often called as the excretory system, composed of kidneys, ureters, bladder and
          Filters out urea ,excess water and other waste products and exit in the
            body as urine
          Maintains the body’s water and salt balance
        The Reproductive System

Male’s reproductive system structures are the Scrotum, Penis, Accessory glands, and
the Duct System
In Females are The Ovaries Fallopian Tubes, Uterus and Vagina
          Production of Offspring
          Testes produce sperm and Ovaries produce egg
