The Body Systems

By: Megan L.

Introduction

Hi, my name is Megan. When you read this flyer you will be learning about the three body systems. The three systems in the human body are the Respiratory System, the Digestive System, and the Circulatory system. Have fun reading about the three systems in the human body!

The Circulatory System

The function of the circulatory system is to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the body and take away cell waste. There are many important parts in the Circulatory System. These parts are the heart, blood, veins, arteries, and capillaries. Did you know that the circulatory system works with other systems? Well... it does! The Circulatory System works with the Digestive System because it breaks down food and nutrients so the blood can circulate it. It also works with the Respiratory System because the lungs breathe in oxygen so the blood can circulate it. You just learned about the Circulatory System!

The Respiratory System

The function of the Respiratory System is to breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. There are important parts of the Respiratory System as well. These important parts are lungs, sinus cavity, trachea, bronchial tubes, bronchial, air sacs and the diaphragm. The Respiratory System works with the Circulatory System because the Circulatory System moves the oxygen around the body. You just learned about the Respiratory System!

The Digestive System

The function of the Digestive System is to break down food so that the blood can carry it to the rest of the body. There are many important parts if the Digestive System as well. These parts are teeth, tongue, epiglottis, esophagus, small intestine, large intestine, and the colon. The Digestive System works with the Circulatory System because the Circulatory System breaks down food so that the nutrients can be distributed by the blood to the body cells. You just learned about the Digestive System!
