Body Systems

A body system is a group of organs or tissues that work together to complete the same function. There are many systems in the human body. Some of these systems include the skeletal system, muscular system, nervous system, circulatory system, and the digestive system.

Other systems in the body include the respiratory system, the immune system, the urinary system, the endocrine system, and the reproductive system. Each body system accomplishes a different function such as breathing or digesting the food that we eat.

All of these systems are unique, and we need all of them for our bodies to function properly. Every body system is important and we need and use all of them every day in our lives.

The human body has two arms, two legs, a torso, a neck, and a head. Within these parts, there are many smaller parts. Your arm, for example, includes your elbow, your arm muscles, and your hand. Inside the hand are even more parts.

Some of these parts are your fingers, your palm, and the muscles in your hand. Although your bicep muscles in your arm and your elbow are both parts of your arm, they are a part of different body systems. Your biceps are a part of the muscular system, and your elbow is a part of your skeletal system!
