Educator Resources for Endocrine System

Are your hormones raging? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby explain the functions of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that spur cellular activity. You’ll learn about the eight major glands, or collections of cells, that make up the endocrine system. Find out which gland is responsible for making you grow, which regulates the level of sugar in your blood, and which one gives you an extra burst of energy just when you need it the most. Plus, find out about some of the different hormones produced by these glands; the role your brain plays in the endocrine system; and how negative feedback tells your glands to stop producing hormones.
