The Integumentary System
The integumentary system is made up of the skin, hair, nails, and glands. The skin is the largest organ in the body and acts as a barrier between the internal organs and the outside world.
The hair and nails are made of keratin, a tough protein that helps protect the skin. The glands produce sweat, which helps regulate body temperature, and sebum, which moisturizes the skin and keeps it healthy.

The Function of the Integumentary System
The primary function of the integumentary system is to protect the body from environmental threats. It is responsible for protecting the body from environmental threats like UV radiation, bacteria, and toxins.
The skin protects against UV radiation, bacteria, and toxins. The skin is the largest organ in the body and acts as a barrier between the internal organs and the outside world.
The hair provides insulation against heat and cold. The nails protect against cuts and scrapes. And the sweat and sebum produced by the glands help keep the skin healthy.
Skin Labeling Worksheet Supplies
- Printer (I have this one)
I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s still running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink-ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.
