What is the
Circulatory System?

The Circulatory System


is how good and bad
materials travel through
our bodies.

The Circulatory System removes


carbon dioxide and waste
from our bodies.

&
The Circulatory System
moves food and oxygen to our cells.

Cells use food and oxygen to make


energy, which keeps us alive.

http://www.biology.arizona.edu/cell_bio/activities/cell_cycle/cell_cycle.html

Food, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and


Waste is carried throughout our bodies
within a fluid called BLOOD.
Under a microscope, blood
looks like cinnamon candy!

Blood travels through tubes called

blood vessels
There are 3 types of
blood vessels:

Arteries (red)
Veins (blue)
Capillaries

The inside of our

veins & arteries


looks something like this!
See all the red and white blood cells?

Stay tuned for more about veins & arteries

When we breathe in,


our lungs take
In OXYGEN.
The oxygen passes into
our blood through our
blood vessels.
Stille, Darlene R. , pg 16

BLOOD, with fresh oxygen


is pushed through our
blood vessels by a muscular
pump the size of our fist
known as the

HEART

The Human HEART has


4 Chambers

Blood Flows down


Through the:
Right Atrium to the
Right Ventricle
then to the
Left Atrium
to the
Left Ventricle

Lets take a look at the

Heart at work

See the difference in the HEART rate


when we are resting, in school, or
playing sports?

When we do not

exercise or eat

properly, we damage our heart.

Fatty foods can make the inside of our


Blood vessels narrow

This blocks blood flow

If blood cannot reach the heart, the


HEART muscle begins to die

This causes a HEART ATTACK

Do You
REMEMBER
What Veins & Arteries
Are?

BLOOD VESSELS

VEINS are blood vessels that


carry used blood back to the heart.

The heart sends the blood


back to the lungs
to pick up
more oxygen.

What color are veins?


Its a Fact! Your Body, p.g. 12

Arteries are blood vessels that


carry blood AWAY from the heart.
The Aorta

The AORTA within the


heart is the largest
ARTERY

The Aorta takes


blood with
oxygen and
delivers it to every
part of our body.
Its a Fact! Your Body pg 12

Capillaries
Are the smallest blood vessels

They branch off from every


Vein and Artery.

Lets Review some of the important


Facts weve learned about the

http://www.besttreatments.co.uk/btuk/images/circluation_animation.gif

How does our body transport food,


Oxygen, carbon dioxide and waste?
Answer: through a fluid called

Blood travels through our bodies


Through BLOOD VESSELS
What are the 3 types of BLOOD VESSELS?

VEINS
ARTERIES
& CAPILLARIES

How many chambers does the


HEART have?

Right Atrium, Right Ventricle


Left Atrium & Left Ventricle

Which blood vessels carry


used blood BACK to the heart?

Which blood vessels carry blood AWAY from the


heart to other parts of our bodies?

What is the name of the LARGEST

ARTERY?
Hint: It is located within the HEART.

What can happen if we


do not eat HEALTHY
or EXERCISE?

Fatty Foods can block blood flow


If BLOOD cannot reach the HEART
YIKES!

This can cause a

HEART ATTACK

So Remember:
Take Good care of your HEART!
Eat Healthy
Exercise
And get plenty of sleep!

ENCORE?!
Okay! Heres a fact that will
AMAZE your friends
Did you know that if all your
ARTERIES, VEINS, & CAPILLARIES
Were joined together end to end
They would stretch more than
62,000 miles or 2 and a half times
Around the EARTH???!!!
