SCI.5-8.4.L1.1g: Science

Multicellular animals often have similar organs and specialized systems for carrying out major life activities.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2a: Science

Each system is composed of organs and tissues which perform specific functions and interact with each other, e.g., digestion, gas exchange, excretion, circulation, locomotion, control, coordination, reproduction, and protection from disease.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2b: Science

Tissues, organs, and organ systems help to provide all cells with nutrients, oxygen, and waste removal.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2c: Science

The digestive system consists of organs that are responsible for the mechanical and chemical breakdown of food. The breakdown process results in molecules that can be absorbed and transported to cells.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2d: Science

During respiration, cells use oxygen to release the energy stored in food. The respiratory system supplies oxygen and removes carbon dioxide (gas exchange).

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2e: Science

The excretory system functions in the disposal of dissolved waste molecules, the elimination of liquid and gaseous wastes, and the removal of excess heat energy.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2f: Science

The circulatory system moves substances to and from cells, where they are needed or produced, responding to changing demands.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2g: Science

Locomotion, necessary to escape danger, obtain food and shelter, and reproduce, is accomplished by the interaction of the skeletal and muscular systems, and coordinated by the nervous system.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2h: Science

The nervous and endocrine systems interact to control and coordinate the body's responses to changes in the environment, and to regulate growth, development, and reproduction. Hormones are chemicals produced by the endocrine system; hormones regulate many body functions.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2i: Science

The male and female reproductive systems are responsible for producing sex cells necessary for the production of offspring.

SCI.5-8.4.L1.2j: Science

Disease breaks down the structures or functions of an organism. Some diseases are the result of failures of the system. Other diseases are the result of damage by infection from other organisms (germ theory). Specialized cells protect the body from infectious disease. The chemicals they produce identify and destroy microbes that enter the body.

SCI.9-12.L.4.1.2.a: Science

Important levels of organization for structure and function include organelles, cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and whole organisms.

SCI.9-12.L.4.1.2.b: Science

Humans are complex organisms. They require multiple systems for digestion, respiration, reproduction, circulation, excretion, movement, coordination, and immunity. The systems interact to perform the life functions.

SCI.9-12.L.4.1.2.c: Science

The components of the human body, from organ systems to cell organelles, interact to maintain a balanced internal environment. To successfully accomplish this, organisms possess a diversity of control mechanisms that detect deviations and make corrective actions.

SCI.9-12.L.4.1.2.d: Science

If there is a disruption in any human system, there may be a corresponding imbalance in homeostasis.

SCI.9-12.L.4.1.2.e: Science

The organs and systems of the body help to provide all the cells with their basic needs. The cells of the body are of different kinds and are grouped in ways that enhance how they function together.
