The circulatory system delivers oxygen and nutrients to cells and takes away wastes! In this class, students will be guided through the circulatory system as well as the organs and tissues associated with it. Students will gain a better understanding of the passage of blood through the heart and how each blood vessel is adapted to its function. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is a great lesson to use a review for any biology student!
