organs of your

Let’s have a look
at them in more
detail.
lungs
stomach
small intestine
skin
It is a bit like your body’s own
control centre.
It sends messages to the rest
of your body.
Your brain needs oxygen from
blood to work properly. Nearly
2,000 liters of blood flow
through the brain every day!
Your body needs
oxygen to stay
alive. When you
breathe in, oxygen
enters your lungs.
Here, the oxygen
goes into your
bloods.
Your heart is like a pump but it is really a muscle.
It's located a little to the left of the middle of
your chest.
The heart sends blood
around your body. The
blood provides your
body with the oxygen
and nutrients.
The liver is the
largest organ
inside your
body.
The liver helps the body
eliminate toxins.
When you eat food passes
into your stomach and stays
there for two-and-a-half to
three hours.
Your stomach muscles
squash the food until it
is a creamy pulp.
Your stomach produces
juices to break down the
food and kill germs you
may have swallowed.
Your intestines are in
two parts.
The small
intestine
The large
intestine
Your small intestine is a
narrow tube that is
about 6 or 7 metres long.
When food leaves your
stomach it comes here
so that nutrients can be
absorbed back into the
body.
Water and food that cannot
be digested pass into your
large intestine and come out
of your body as waste.
Your skin covers
and protects
everything inside
your body.
Skin is always renewing
itself . Every minute of the
day we lose about 30,000
dead skin cells and get new
skin cells.
There are many others, too many for us to
look at now.
Let’s just look at a couple more that are
important.
The kidneys are every bit
as important as the heart.
You need at least one
kidney to live!
Kidneys is to filter the waste out of
the blood. The waste that is
collected combines with water to
make urine.
The bladder is a
bag that collects
the urine that
leaves the
kidneys.
The
bladder
It sends
message to your
brain and you go
to the toilet.
