  • 1. The Excretory System
  • 2. What is it?!!??
    The excretory system is the system that is designed to get rid of waste that is present only in your blood.
  • 3. What are the parts of the excretory system!?!!
    There are four main parts of the excretory system, they are the:
    - Kidneys (2)
    - Ureters (2)
    - Urinary Bladder
    - Urethra
  • 4. Lets Take a Closer Look!
  • 5. The Kidneys
    The kidneys are bean-shaped organs that are part of the excretory system
    They are there to filter the blood which produces urine
  • 6. Ureters
    We have two ureters because we have two kidneys
    The ureters carry urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder
  • 7. Urinary Bladder
    The urinary bladder is where the urine is stored until it is released as waste through the urethra
  • 8. Urethra
    It is the tube that carries the urine from the urinary bladder to the outside of the body
  • 9. How it works!
    The kidney filters the blood of any un-needed waste which is urine
    The urine then goes down the ureters to the urinary bladder
    The urinary bladder stores the waste until it is released
    It is then released through the urethra
