Body Organization
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Your body is like a complex machine. It takes a lot to keep it working properly. It must keep your internal environment stable to support healthy cells. Homeostasis refers to the maintenance of a stable internal environment.
 
2     In order to successfully complete all the jobs necessary to maintain stability, cells are organized into different groups. Cells are the basic unit of all living things. Similar cells grouped together make a tissue. There are four main groups of tissue - epithelial tissue, nervous tissue, muscle tissue, and connective tissue. Epithelial tissue protects underlying tissue. Nervous tissue sends electrical signals. Muscle tissue helps produce movement. Connective tissue joins, protects, and supports organs.
