1 Grade 8 Science “Cells, Tissues, Organs & Systems”

2 Systems... All systems have the following characteristics: Made up of individual parts that work together as a whole

3 Often connected to one or more systems
If one part of a system is missing or damaged, the system will not function well or may not function at all.

4 Levels of Organization
cells tissues Organs Organ systems organisms

5 Tissues Groups of similar cells Found in all multicellular organisms Ex. Muscle tissue, nerve tissue, epithelial tissue, etc.


7 Organs Groups of tissues. Made up of two or more types of tissues. They are distinct structures that perform specific functions.

8 Ex. Lungs, kidneys, heart, etc.

9 Organ Systems A group of organs that perform activities that help the body as a whole. 6 examples of organ systems are...

10 Systems to study Digestive System Circulatory system Nervous System
Respiratory System Excretory System Muscular System

11 Research We are going to create groups and each group will be responsible to learn about, and then teach the rest of the group about their system by answering the questions given. Each group will have to make a quick presentation, will need some sort of graphic and a short write up that can be shared with the rest of the class.

12 The questions to answer are:
What is your organ system? What is the main function of the system? What organs, tissues and cell types are involved in the systems function? How do they all function together? A graphic of the system within the human body

13 Rubric Evaluation Rubric

14 You have a limited time to work on this so I suggest that you assign people to roles and give each person a ‘task’ to complete Ie one person to find organs involved and how they function together, one to make a picture/ structure, one person to find what the system does

15 1. Digestive System Consists of: Mouth Liver Esophagus Gall Bladder Stomach Pancreas Small Intestine Large Intestine

16 Function: To take in and break down food, absorb nutrients, and eliminate solid waste.


18 2. Circulatory System Consists of: Heart Arteries, Veins Capillaries

19 Function: To transport blood, nutrients (chemicals needed for survival), gases and wastes.


21 3. Nervous System Consists of: Brain Spinal cord Nerves Sense organs

22 Function: To detect changes in the environment and to signal these changes to the body which then carries out a response.


24 4. Respiratory System Consists of: Nasal cavity Trachea Lungs

25 Function: To control breathing, and exchange gases in lungs and tissues.


27 5. Excretory System Consists of: Lungs Kidneys Urinary bladder

28 Function: To remove liquid and gas wastes from the body


30 6. Muscular System Consists of: Muscle tissue connected to bones throughout the body.

31 Function: To work with the bones to move body parts
