Muscle tissue - responds to stimulation and contracts to provide movement. It is divided into three major types: skeletal (voluntary) muscles, smooth muscles, and the cardiac muscle in the heart.
Epithelial tissue - made of layers of cells that cover the surfaces of the body that come into contact with the exterior world, line internal cavities, and form glands.
Nervous tissue - allows the body to receive signals and transmit information as electric impulses from one region of the body to another.
Specialist connective tissues (bone) – highly calcified, solid, hard. Provides internal support, stores minerals, protects vital organs, enables movements, provides attachment sites to muscles.
Specialist connective tissues - binds the cells and organs of the body together and performs many functions, especially in the protection, support, and integration of the body.
