Believe it or not, I still have a few more anatomy notebooking sets that I haven’t shared. The integumentary system is one of them. Again, I created these to to along with Exploring Creation with Anatomy.
Here are some questions, taken from an old book, to think about as you do your study on the integumentary system.
- Give a brief description of the skin.
- What is its structure?
- How does the skin protect the body?
- What is the structure of the epidermis?
- What causes a blister?
- What gives the skin its color?
- How are the nails formed? The hair?
- What are the uses of the hair and nails? How do they grow?
- How does the cuticle protect the cutis?
- Describe the perspiratory glands.
- Of what use is perspiration?
- How do we take cold, and what can be done to prevent it?
- What can you say of the nerves of the skin?
- Why is bathing necessary?
EXPERIMENTS ON THE SKIN
1. The hair, nails, and bits of cuticle and scarf-skin may be examined with a microscope.
2. A magnifying-glass should be used in the examination of the skin itself.
The perspiration-pores may be best seen in the palms of the hands.
