  • What would happen if these wastes were left surrounding the cell?


Lymphatic organs

Lymphatic Organs

  • Lymph nodes

  • Thymus

  • Spleen

  • Tonsils


Lymph nodes

Lymph Nodes

  • Bean shaped organs that are found connected to the lymph vessels that remove particles such as pathogens and dead cells from the Lymph

  • Contain wbc’s

  • Get swollen when we are fighting an infection

  • Why do you think the lymph nodes swell?


Thymus gland

Thymus Gland

  • Located above the heart

  • Releases and produces wbc’s


Spleen

Spleen

  • Largest Lymphatic organ

  • Located in the upper side of the abdomen

  • Filters the blood – rbc recycling center

  • Produces and releases wbc’s


T onsils

Tonsils

  • Made up of Lymphatic tissue at the back of the tongue
