  • How is the endocrine system similar to a thermostat? Explain this analogy and include a discussion of homeostasis in your answer.
  • If you had to choose one gland or resulting hormone to live without, which one would it be and why?
  • Which gland and/or resulting hormones do you think serve the most important function and why? Include an example from personal experience or a scenarioA table of the major endocrine organs and their associated hormones

Step 2 Create a table.

Create a table of the major endocrine organs of the human body. For each organ, include:

  • Hormones associated with each organ and the target cells affected by those hormones
  • One example of a disease or disorder
  • Brief comment about whether this organ is impacted by stage of life

part 2

Create a PowerPoint presentation

Create a five-slide PowerPoint presentation that covers the following topics:

o Anatomy of the urinary system

o Path of urine formation

o Composition of urine

Conduct research as necessary and include images in your slides (cite your sources). Be concise. Put detailed notes in the notes section of each slide.
