  • Cell Organisation
    • Large Multicellular Organisms
      • Differentiation occurs during the the development of a multicellular organsim
      • Specialised cells form tissues, which form organ systems
    • Tissue
      • A group of similar cells that work together to carry out a particular function
      • Muscular tissue- contracts to move whatever it's attached to
      • Glandular tissue- makes and secretes chemicals like enzymes and hormones
      • Epithelial Tissue- covers some parts of the body
    • Organ
      • A group of different tissues that work together to perform a particular function
      • Muscular tissue- moves the stomach wall to churn up the food
      • Glandular Tissue- makes digestive juices to digest food
      • Epithelial tissue- covers the outside and the inside of the stomach
    • Organ Systems
      • A group of organs working together to perform a particular function eg. the digestive system
      • The stomach and small intestine- digest food
      • Liver- produces bile
      • Small intestine- absorbs food soluble food molecules
      • Large intestine- absorbs water from undigested food, leaving faeces
