Body Systems - Keynote Slide Show
Human Body Systems Presentation Slide Presentation
Describe how the “nutrients” found in a food item of your choice will be delivered to the proper destination in your body, i.e. the cells in your big toe or even the cells in your brain. Explain how the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and excretory systems are in involved in the delivery, utilization, and waste removal of the nutrient products.
A successful project will:
- Use science concepts/terms accurately.
- Have visuals including pictures and diagrams used appropriately to support the presentation.
- There is a clear beginning, an organized body, and a clear closure.
- Each student will make his/her own slide presentation.
- The slide presentation will have a minimum of 7 slides with a maximum of 20 slides (1 slide will be the title slide and another will include a bibliography).
- Include a minimum of 20 twenty terms, used correctly, listed on the back of this page. 4. Each diagram/picture used must be cited.
- Use the last slide for your bibliography.
Due Date: February 13, 2014
Helpful questions to ponder:
How is the food changed from the form prior to consumption to the form it must be for the cell to use?
How are food molecules transferred from the digestive system to individual cells throughout the body?
What part of the cell processes the food molecules?
What is the name of the process that occurs in the cell?
What are the end products of the process described above?
How are wastes that are formed in the cell removed from the body?
Citation and Plagiarism Resources on the Internet
The following is a list of online resources you can look at to get information about body systems. This information has either been purchase through our access to online databases, or we have vetted the sites for their validity, reliability, and accuracy.
The Circulatory System
From Science Online: The circulatory system governs the circulation of blood around the body.
The Digestive System
From Science Online: The purpose of the digestive system is to take food into the body and convert it to a usable form that can be transported throughout the body.
The Excretory System
From Science Online: The major functions of the excretory system are the removal of nitrogenous wastes from the body and osmoregulation.
The Immune System
The lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, thymus, tonsils, and spleen that work in conjunction with the circulatory system to transport extracellular fluid; the lymph organs aid in immune defense against microbial infection and cancer.
The Musculoskeletal system
From Science Online: The musculoskeletal system comprises the muscular and the skeletal systems. The purpose of the muscular system is locomotion or movement. The functions of the skeletal system are to provide structural support, protect the body's internal organs, and aid in movement by providing a simple mechanical lever system against which the muscles work.
The Nervous System
From Science Online: A ramifying system of cells, found in all animals except sponges, that forms a communication system between receptors and effectors and allows varying degrees of coordination of information from different receptors and stored memory, producing integrated responses to stimuli.
The Respiratory System
The respiratory system enables the exchange of air and the transport of oxygen through the lungs into the circulatory system.
The Skin System
From Science Online: A primary function of skin is forming a barrier that protects the body from dehydration. In fact, the biggest threat to survival for terrestrial animals is dehydration, and the waterproof nature of skin keeps fluids and other important substances inside. Skin also protects the entire body from physical or external injury (bumps, abrasions, and cuts), as well as chemical damage (acids and bases). In addition, skin shields us from continual bacterial invasion and ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.

Books on the Systems of the Body
In this readable, lively book, Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang dispel common myths about the brain and provide a comprehensive, useful overview of how it really works. In its pages, you'll discover how to cope with jet lag, how your brain affects your religion, and how men's and women's brains differ. With witty, accessible prose decorated by charts, trivia, quizzes, and illustrations, this book is great for quick reference or extended reading.
Both practical and fun, Welcome to Your Brain is perfect whether you want to impress your friends or simply use your brain better.
