Chloe and The Nurb was a mini series about a girl names Chloe and a purple thing named Nurb, the series would teach you about the body, and how to take care of it. The series was educational but it was always filled with cringe, if you watch it you will know what I mean.
The human body is a single structure but it is made up of billions of smaller structures of four major kinds: cells, tissues, organs, and systems. An organ is an organization of several different kinds of tissues so arranged that together they can perform a special function.
Knowing how the body functions is important. If you understand how a body operates, then you’ll know if everything is working the way it’s supposed to. And knowing why it operates the way it does helps you to know how to develop a lifelong plan for good health.
Point to your baby’s body parts and name them. Start by pointing to your own nose and say ‘nose’. Then point to your baby’s nose and repeat ‘nose’. Do this for a few days consecutively, before moving on to other body parts – the eyes, mouth, ears, hair, hands, toes, fingers and more.
Cells, Tissues, and Organs
Like all living organisms, the human body is made up of cells. There are all different types of cells in the human body. When lots of similar cells work together to perform a function, they make up tissue.
The skeletal system works as a support structure for your body. It gives the body its shape, allows movement, makes blood cells, provides protection for organs and stores minerals. The skeletal system is also called the musculoskeletal system.
The human body is made up of many different parts, all of which have a special function or job. When several parts work together they are called body systems. The study of the human body is called human anatomy.
There are many systems in the body, such as the skeletal, muscular, circulatory, nervous, digestive, immune, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems and they all interact with each other every second of our lives. Without these systems, humans would not be able to grow, maintain life, and reproduce.
Tell them, “If you want/need to talk about private parts, talk to Mommy or Daddy privately or within our house but not in public.” It’s not only important to explain to kids that their parts are private, but that others’ parts are private as well. We respect others by allowing them to keep their parts private.
Hands and feet are the first to expand. Needing new shoes is the first sign of trouble. Next, arms and legs grow longer, and even here the ‘outside-in’ rule applies. The shin bones lengthen before the thigh, and the forearm before the upper arm.
The only part of the human body which does not grow in size from birth to death is the ‘innermost ear ossicle’ or the ‘Stapes’. EXPLANATION: The stapes is 3 mm is size when a person is born. As a person grows or develops, this ossicle does not grow in size.
Our noses and ears are unique compared to the rest of our bodies because they’re composed of soft tissue enveloped in cartilage. And it’s this soft tissue that keeps growing throughout our entire lives.
These different body systems include the skeletal, nervous, muscular, respiratory, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular/circulatory, urinary, integumentary, reproductive, and digestive systems.
|Body System||Primary Function|
|Nervous/Sensory||Communication between and coordination of all the body systems|
|Integumentary||Protects against damage|
|Muscular/Skeletal||Provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body|
Skin has three layers: The epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands. The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat and connective tissue.
