Okay, class. Today we will be learning about the function of the endocrine system.
Firstly, I would like to know if anybody knows anything about the endocrine system already.
The endocrine system has lots of glands that realease hormones through the body.
Correct! The endocrine system is the chief communicator and coordinator for most body systems. It consists of a collection of glands that have different functions.
Some of the things that the endocrine system helps regulate are metabolism, growth and reproduction involvement, regulate water and electrolyte balance, and helping the body handle infections, trauma, and stress.
