Transcript of Copy of Levels of Organization


We have 75-100 trillion cells and
210 different types of cells
The surface area of the lungs is roughly
the same size as a tennis court.
The highest recorded “sneeze speed”
Is 103 miles per hour.
Adults eat about
1,100 pounds
of food per year.
The brain looks like a
giant, wrinkled walnut.
About 2 million blood cells die in the human body every second, and the same number
are produced each second.
It takes 20 muscles to smile

Characterized by:

Each organ in your body is part of an organ system, a group of organs working together to perform a special job in the body
a group of biological cells that perform a similar function.
a collection of tissues joined in a structural unit to serve a common function

Plants and animals have organ systems too!
