Transcript of Organization of Living Things

Groups of cells are then organized into tissue. Tissue is groups of the same kind of cells that perform a specific task. Some different types of tissue found in our bodies are: nerve tissue, muscle tissue, and connective tissue. Blood Cells Muscle Cells Organs join together to for an organ system. An ORGAN SYSTEM is a group of organs that work together to accomplish a specific, complex task within an organism. For Example, think about how blood travels through your body. The heart has to pump blood throughout your body's circulatory system in order to transport oxygen to all of your cells. The
Organization of Living Things CELLS are the building blocks of all living things. There are several different kinds of cells. Each kind of cell has a specific job to accomplish within the body. Three examples of the different types of cells we have in our bodies are: Tissue Cells Groups of tissues are then organized to form an organ. An ORGAN is a collection of tissues joined together to preform a specific function. Just as different types of cells and tissues that have specific jobs, different organs have specific jobs as well. The brain, eyes, stomach, lungs, and skin are all examples of organs in our bodies. Finally, organ systems come together to form a (multicellular) organism. An ORGANISM is an individual living thing that can react to stimuli, reproduce, grow, and maintain homeostasis. It can be a virus, bacterium, protist, fungus, plant or an animal. Humans are multicellular organisms. Multicellular organisms have different organ systems that accomplish essential task for the organism allowing it to breath, eat, remove waste, and all other things that organisms need to live. Organs Organ System Skin Cells Nerve Cells Organism Let's go through those again! The interactions between cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems is continuous within our body. Multi-cellular organisms (like humans and other animals) need these different structures and specialized systems to perform functions within their bodies in order to survive.
