    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Connective tissue proper: loose connective tissue, areolar.

    2. Wraps and cushions organs; its macrophages phagocytize bacteria; plays important role in inflammation; holds and conveys tissue fluid.

    3. Widely distributed under epithelia of the body, e.g., forms lamina propria of mucous membranes; packages organs; surrounds capillaries.

    1. Connective tissue proper: loose connective tissue, adipose.

    2. Provides reserve fuel; insulates agains heat loss; supports and protects organs.

    3. It is found under skin; around kidneys and eyeballs; within abdomen; in breasts.

    1. Connective tissue proper: loose connective tissue, reticular.

    2. Fibers form a soft internal skeleton (stroma) that supports other cells types including white blood cells, mast cells, and macrophages.

    3. Lymphoid organs (lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen.)

    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Connective tissue proper: dense connective tissue, dense regular.

    2. Attaches muscles to bones or to muscles; attaches bones to bones; withstands great tensile stress when pulling force is applied in one direction.

    3. Tendons, most ligaments, aponeuroses.

    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Connective tissue proper: dense connective tisue, dense irregular.

    2. Able to withstand tension exerted in many directions; provides structural strength.

    3. Dermis of the skin; submucosa of digestive tract; fibrous capsules of organs and joints.

    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Cartilage: hyaline

    2. Supports and reinforces; has resists cushioning properties; resists compressive stress.

    3. Forms most of the embryonic skeleton; covers the ends of long bones in joint cavities; forms costal cartilages of the ribs; cartilages of the nose, trachea, and larynx.

    1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Cartilage: elastic

    2. Maintains the shape of a structure while allowing great flexibility.

    3. Supports the external ear (pinna); epiglottis.

    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Cartilage: fibrocarilage

    2. Tensile strength with the ability to absorb compressive shock.

    3. Intervertabral discs; public symphysis; discs of knee joint.

    1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Bone (osseous tissue)

    2. Bone supports and protects (by enclosing); provides levers for the muscles to act on; stores calcium and other minerals and fat; marrow inside bones is the site for blood cell formation (hematopoiesis).

    3. Bones
