Tissue web quest


  • pg 1
									Tissue Webquest

Within the Essential Study Partner - GO TO: Levels of Organization -> Tissues -> Introduction

In the top left corner of the “Essential Study Partner” screen, click “Click here to choose a unit.” – and a drop down
menu should appear showing “Levels of Organization,” “Support and Movement” etc.
Click on “Levels of Organization”
Next Click on “Tissues” – and another drop down menu should appear – “Introduction” “Epithelial Tissue” Etc.
Click on “Introduction” and you should see a picture of some lungs and the respiratory system.

At the bottom of the screen are icons that represent pages within this section. There is an icon that looks like a
“page” and two that have arrows associated with them. Click on these icons to move between the 5 pages that are
associated with the Introduction section of the Histology unit. Most of the time, no page number will be given and
you’ll have to hunt a bit between the different pages.

You are now ready to begin your quest for information about tissues of the body!!
Part 1 – Introduction
Throughout the semester, we will look at pictures of organs, such as a brain or a heart, and then point to a specific
section of the image and ask, “What general tissue type is this?” When the question “What GENERAL tissue type
is this” arises, you only have four options

    1. What are the four tissue types and where might they be found?

    2. What is a tissue?

    3. What is histology? (you may need to refer to your book for this answer)

    4. What is extracellular material (also called matrix).

Part 2 - Epithelial Tissue
Epithelial tissue is classified according to two different systems: First, the shapes of the cells, e.g., squamous, and
second, the arrangements of the cells, i.e. simple, stratified, or pseudostratified. Combining these two systems you
get terms such as "simple squamous epithelium" or "stratified squamous epithelium."

    5. What are the functions of epithelial tissue?

    6. Epithelial tissues cover internal and external surfaces. True / False Explain.

    7. The lining of the stomach (a common example of a hollow organ) is made of epithelial cells. True / False

8. Basement membrane

9. Free surface (Note: there is a free surface in your stomach, and many other hollow organs, like your bladder,
heart, etc)
10. Make a drawing of each cell/tissue type and provide an example location.

    Simple Squamous Epithelium                   Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
Drawing                                     Drawing

Example Location                            Example Location

     Simple Columnar Epithelium             Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium
Drawing                                     Drawing

Example Location                            Example Location

   Stratified Squamous Epithelium               Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium
Drawing                                     Drawing

Example Location
                                            Example Location

   Stratified Columnar Epithelium                  Transitional Epithelium
Drawing                                     Drawing (This one is difficult to draw)

Example Location                            Example Location

11. What is the difference between simple, stratified, and pseudostratified epithelium? Try to make a drawing of
each tissue type.
      Simple Epithelium               Stratified Epithelium          Pseudostratified Epithelium

12. What is the difference between Columnar, Squamous and Cuboidal arrangement of epithelial cells? Try to
make a drawing of type of arrangement.

          Columnar                         Squamous                            Cuboidal
    13. List a few other “surfaces of the body” that are covered with Epithelial tissues.

    14. What is function of microvilli and cilia? Where can they be found (give examples)?

    15. What are goblet cells?

    16. What is a gland?

    17. What is the difference between an exocrine and an endocrine gland?

Part 3 Connective Tissue
Connective tissue typically has large quantities of extracellular materials, such as collagen and elastin.

    18. What is the difference between a “blast,” “cyte” and a “clast” cell?

    19. What is the function and location of the following connective tissues?

                Adipose tissue

                Cartilage (hyaline, fibro and elastic cartilage)



    20. What is the matrix of blood?

Part 4 Nervous Tissue

    21. Name a few organs that contain nervous tissue.

    22. What is the difference between a neuron and a neuroglia cell?

Part 5 Muscle Tissue
Muscle tissue can essentially do only two things: it can contract and it can relax. Muscle tissue will be examined in
detail later in the course, but for now, answer the following simple questions about muscles.

    23. What are the three types of muscle tissue and where can each be found?

    24. Skeletal muscle makes-up over 50% of a person’s body weight. True / False
    25. Smooth muscle can be found in the walls of hollow organs. True / False
    26. Besides the heart, cardiac muscle can also be found in the liver. True / False
    27. What are intercalated discs?

    28. In which muscle type can you find intercalated discs?

    Be sure to do the activities on the last two screens.

Part 5 Membranes

Review the structure of serous membranes (Serous membranes was initially covered in Chapter 1 of the textbook).

    29. What are Serous membranes and where in the body can they be found?

    30. Watch the movie in screen 3

Part 6 The Quiz

Turn in your computer. You must work alone but you may use you’re your book & your webquest packet.

Pick up your quiz at the front of the class – Everything is due at the end of class today.
