Epithelial Tissue Warm  Up

Welcome to the electronic Human Anatomy and Physiology classroom of the 21st century. Epithelial tissue covers the whole surface of the body. This warm up permits an unlimited number of attempts to aid in learning this material. Each attempt will provide 10 random questions and answers! I hope you enjoy this warm up exercise as it relates to the different types of epithelial tissue.
