As students explore the different body systems from our current unit of inquiry, Inside Me – The Human Body, they are discovering that these systems work together to make our bodies function.
Students were asked to reflect on the following question:
How do your body’s respiratory and circulatory systems work together?
“The circulatory system is your heart and blood vessels. Blood takes food and oxygen to cells in your body.” – Noah
“Once air is in your lungs, blood removes the oxygen and takes it to the cells.” – Faris
“Your lungs remove carbon dioxide from your blood.” – Danni
“The respiratory system helps you take in oxygen and puts it in the circulatory system so your heart can beat and pump the blood.” – Aidan
To learn more about the circulatory system we watched the following School House Rock video – Do The Circulation.
