Video: Heart and circulatory system — How they work

It's a muscular organ about the size of your fist and located slightly left of center in your chest. Your heart is divided into the right and the left side. The division protects oxygen-rich blood from mixing with oxygen-poor blood. Together, your heart and blood vessels comprise your cardiovascular system, which circulates blood and oxygen around your body. In fact: Your heart pumps about 5 quarts of blood every minute. Oxygen-poor blood, "blue blood," returns to the heart after circulating through your body. Science hang man. 7th Grade Health Learns the Digestive System. 3D Models of the Human Anatomy.

We have begun our unit on living systems in science (thank GOSH because Earth and Physical science have quite literally killed me this year...seriously, I feel like the most incompetent teacher when I teach science...but I digress...).

Circulation and Respiration

Our main focus for the past week before Spring Break was the circulatory and respiratory systems. I thought I would share some of the things we have been doing, in case some of you are in the same unit yourselves. To get us started, we watched a few BrainPOP videos about circulation and blood. I found these in the HEALTH section, not the science section. The kids were very enthralled with these videos (they ALWAYS are really) There was quite a lot of information in them, which got us started on the right foot. The videos mentioned how the circulatory system was the delivery system of the body and that all systems were connected to this one. Book. We then used the Easy Make & Learn Projects: Human Body (Grades 2-4) book and created a model of the heart.
