What are the functions of the cardiovascular system?
It brings oxygen to cells, fights infection, removes cell waste, and regulates body temperature
What are the major organs of the cardiovascular system?
heart, veins, blood vessels, and arteries
How does the cardiovascular system interact with the respiratory system?
Red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs to other cells in your body
How does the cardiovascular system interact with the digestive system?
Red blood cells carry digested food and nutrients to cells in our body
How does the cardiovascular system interact with the endocrine system?
Red blood cells carry hormones that deliver messages around the body
What are the functions of the skeletal system?
It protects our organs, helps us move, and gives us shape
What are the major organs in the skeletal system?
How does the skeletal system interact with the muscular system?
Bones and muscles are attached together so when you move your muscles and bones are working together
How does the skeletal system interact with the cardiovascular system?
Marrow which is inside bones creates red and white blood cells. Both types of blood cells wouldn't be able to circulate without the bones of the skeletal system which made them
What are the functions of the muscular system?
It helps you circulate blood and food and allows you to produce voluntary movement

What systems does the endocrine system work most closely with?
Cardiovascular, Reproductive, Nervous, and Digestive
What are the main functions of the digestive system?
Converts and absorbs food into molecules for cell use and eliminates solid waste

What systems does the reproductive system work most closely with?
Endocrine and Cardiovascular/Respiratory/Digestive system if your pregnant
What two systems interact to allow you to move and complete daily activities?
Muscular and Skeletal
