The Circulatory System

The blood is the transport system by which oxygen and nutrients reach the bodys
cells, and waste materials are carried away. The heart, a muscular organ, positioned
behind the ribcage and between the lungs, is pump that keeps this transport system
moving.

Blood leaves the left side of the heart and traels through arteries, which gradually
divide into capillaries. In the capillaries, food and oxygen are realeased to the body
cells, and carbon dioxide and other waste products are returned to the bloodstream.
The blood then travels in veins back to right side of the heart, where it is pumped
directly to the lungs. In the lungs, carbon dioxide is exchanged for oxygen, and this
renewed blood flows back to the left side of the heart, and whole process begins
again.

There are many kinds of cactus plants, but most grow in deserts and other dry
places. These plants have adaptations, or special features, that let them live in
places where there is little water.

Imagine only having to take one big drink of water to or three times a year! Thats
aa the water a cactus plant needs. The cactus is made up mostly of sterms and
roots. Most kinds of cactus have no leaves or leaves that are very small. The cactus
I madde for storing water, and water can escape through leaves.

The roots of a cactus spread out close to the surface of the ground. When it rains,
the roots soak up as much water as possible. Cactus plants dont close one another.
Each plant needs losts of room to collect water. The stem of the cactus stores the
