5 Diseases Chicken Pox Have you ever woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and saw that your face was covered in rashes, spots, or little things that look like zits? Well, either your brother covered you in your mom’s lipstick last night, or you’ve got the CHICKEN POX!!! So what is chicken pox? No it’s not when you turn into a chicken! Chicken pox is actually a disease when you get little red spots all over your body that itch very badly. It is caused by a virus called varicella zoster, which causes you to get the red rash on your skin. It’s also very contagious and you can get it when a person sneezes on you and it last up to 2-5 days. It effects the intergumentary system because the rashes on your skin are itchy and if you scratch them, they can leave scars on your skin. To avoid these nightmare scratches, you may want to get shots for them before they come. Source-www.kids health.org

6 Interesting facts Did you know that your hair is made up of hundreds of dead cells? There is about 20,000 pores on your face. If you stretched out an adults skin it would be the size of a queen mattress. Source-www.kids health.org

7 What Are they? Have you ever wondered what the hair, fingernails, and actually toenails are? Well, your about to find out! Let’s start with the hair. Hair is keratinized pigment that grows from your epidermis ( epidermis is the outer layer of your skin) Keratin is the protein that your hair is made of. Hair actually comes from your parents. That’s the big reason why you have hair! Source-www.kids health.org

8 What are fingernails? Next is the fingernails. These are also made out of long fibers that are made of keratin. The nails also protect the fingertips (which are the transparent plate over your nails) and help you pick up items. Source-www.kidshealth.org

9 What are the toenails? The toenails are the same as your fingernails only their on your toes and they protect the tips of your toes. Not much of a difference there!!!! Source-www.kids health.org

10 What is it connected to? The intergumentary system is actually connected to all of the systems because it holds every other system together. Without this system, you would be a huge blob of organs. YUCK!!!!!

11 More Interesting Facts Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in the body? Did you know that before you where born, you already had fingernails and toenails? Did you know that animals with fur or feathers can also get dandruff? Did you know that when you sleep at night, over a million dust mites are eating dead cells that are on you? Source-
