Foldable• List all 11 body systems on the flaps of your foldable• Inside the flaps, write information about each of the body systems• Include the basic function of the system and any major organs of that system
Skeletal System • Function: To give the body support and structure. Protects major organs from damage • Organs: Bones and cartilage Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/loush555/
Muscular System• Function: Works with the skeletal system to allow movement of the body.• Organs: Heart, arm and leg muscles, etc.Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/loush555/

Body Systems EQs (p. 64)1. What is homeostasis and how do the systems of the human body help to maintain it?
Body Systems EQs2. (BIG Question) For each of the body systems listed, explain how the system provides for the needs of humans as organisms as well as describing the major organs of that system: Skeletal, Muscular, Integumentary, Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Digestive, Nervous, Reproductive, Endocrine.
Body Systems EQs3. Give four examples (from different systems) of how the structure of an organ is related to its function in the human body.
Body Systems EQs4. Explain three ways in which understanding human body systems helps people make informed decisions about health.
Body Systems Title Page• On page 65 in your notebook, you need to make a title page for HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS• Look through pages 144 – 327 to get ideas for images to include in your title page.• Be sure to include questions you have about the human body
