  14. Integumentary system
    • regulates body temperature
    • the skin (integumentary), liver (digestive), and kidneys (urinary) assist to produce Vitamin D.
    • Skin (dermis and hypodermis)
    • Hair
    • Glands (sweat and sebaceous)

    • function is frame work structure, protect vital organs, produce blood cells
    • blood cells are: red, white, and platelets
    • red bone marrow produces: red, white, and platelets
