A103 Anatomy and Physiology   Problem 9 ­ Scratched  Worksheet    The student resource is meant to help students where to start their research into solving  the problem, as well as to provide some clues to the direction of learning they should be  taking.     1.  2.  3.    Skin  Thickness  Colour tone  Texture  Additional  (very thin – very  observations  thick)  Palm  Thin  Fair  Rough    Foot          Scalp          Oral cavity          Any other part          of the body  1. By observing yourself, compare the skin on your palm, foot, scalp and mouth with  other parts of the body. Fill in the table below with their characteristics.                Propose reasons for the differences (if any) in characteristics.      2. Just like the shape of feet or the color of hair, skin tone is unique to an individual.   a. Look around you and list down the skin tones of people you see around you.    b. In your view what factors are involved in determining skin tone?     c. Why do we get darker when exposed to too much sun?    d. We all hear that too much exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer. At the  same time, is it a good idea to avoid the sun altogether?      1      3. Below is a cross­section of the skin.    a. Identify the various layers of the skin.             2    b. What are the basic functions of skin?    c. In the table below, identify the layers of the skin and relate to their functions.    Main layer of skin  Important structures  Main functions  Epidermis  ???  Protection, melanin for  UV protection.  Dermis  ???  Sensory perception,  sweat production  Subcutaneous tissue  Adipose tissue, connective  ???  tissue    4. Your entire body is covered with millions of hair.  What is the role of hair?    5. When you handle household chemicals such as detergents, washing liquid etc., the  detergent sloughs off the dirt from the clothes, but it does not cause irritation to  your skin. How does the skin prevent this from happening?    6. Recall what you learnt in P8 about homeostasis. Provide some examples of how  the skin participates in the homeostasis of the body.    7. When you are wounded, the area would be reddish too.  This is due to the  increased blood circulation at the wounded area.  How does the increased blood  circulation at this area help the wound?    8. How do you think skin injuries recover?  Explain using the 3 main phases of wound healing.      Going further  8.  Compare how the anatomy of the skin is linked to the classification of burns.    End of Activity  3
