    Organ Level
  16. Organ Systems consist of different organs that work together closely.
    Organ System Level
  17. The human organism is made up of many organ systems.
    Organismal Level
  18. This body system forms the external body covering, and protects deeper tissues from injury. Synthesizes vitamin D, and houses cutaneous (pain, pressure, etc.), receptors and sweat and oil glands.
    Integumentary System
  19. This body system protects and supports body organs, and provides a framework the muscles use to cause movement. Blood cells are formed within bones. Bones store minerals.
    Skeletal System
  20. This body system allows manipulation of the environment, locomotion, and facial expression. Maintains posture and produces heat.
    Muscular System
  21. This body system is the fast-acting control system of the body, it responds to internal and external changes by activating appropriate muscles and glands.
