What is the difference between cells, tissues, organs and or
Transcript of What is the difference between cells, tissues, organs and or
All living organisms are made up of cells. There are lots of different things made up of cells, like our body for example. You find them in plants and animals. The cells are different when they are in different places shown in the diagrams below. Cells are everywhere!
An Organ is a specialized group of tissues that performs a particular function. There are lots of Organs in the human body like the heart, lungs and intestines.
Organs systems are made up of lots of Organs all working together. These Systems work to perform a particular function. If one part of the system fails, the results can be catastrophic resulting in the whole system shutting down.
What's the difference?
Cells are tiny and they make up every living organism on this planet. Cells are different to tissues because tissues are MADE of cells, and they have lots of similar tiny cells that make them what they are. Both of these are different to Organs because organs are made of tissues; therefore they are made of cells. Finally, Organ Systems differ because they are made up of Organs and we have Organ Systems that run our bodies and without these we wouldn't be able to live.
A tissue consists of groups of similar or the same type of cells. Tissues are made for and carry out a specific function.
Did you know?...
How many major Organ Systems do you think there are in the human body?
There are lots major Organ Systems in the Human Body. These are the skeletal, muscular, nervous, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, reproductive, and urinary systems - there are 8!
Tissues are put into 4 main groups: epithelial tissue, connective
tissue, nerve tissue, and muscle tissue
Please feel free to ask any questions.
What's the difference?
It is like a chain really - Cells to Tissues to Organs to Organ Systems. The only big difference is the complexity.
