Lab Exercise 7: Integumentary System
I. Lab Objectives
A. View, draw, and label a microscope slide of skin tissue
B. Observe a model of the skin and name its structures
Activity 1: Locating Structures on a Skin Model – identify the following structures on the skin model (see picture on next page) and answer the questions below.
-Epidermis layers (from superficial to deep) Tissue type?
Type of cells? Function?
Type of cells? Only found where?
Type of cells? What do they produce?
Type of cells? What protective cells are found in this layer?
3 types of cells? What processes occur here?
Type of tissue? Sensory cell type found here?
Main tissue type? 2 gland types?
Pressure receptor type? Blood vessels present or absent?
Hair follicles & arrector pili present or absent?
Hypodermis (subcutaneous tissue under the skin)
2 tissue types: Blood vessels present or absent?
Activity 2: Identifying nail structure - Do this
Activities 3 & 4: Microscope slide of hairy skin – view the skin microscope slide provided and be able to identify the following structures.
Hair follicles, hair root, sebaceous gland, sweat gland
Activities 5: Plotting the distribution of sweat glands – Do this
Activity 6: OMIT
Homework: Complete the Lab 7 Review Sheets.
Identify the numbered structures on the picture of the cell model below.
