Week #5: September 21 - September 25
Arteries carry the blood away from your heart, veins carry the blood back towards your heart. Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in the body and connect arteries to veins.
Your Blood consists of Blood Cells and Blood Plasma. Blood Plasma is the liquid substance that blood is made of. Red blood cells transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the body. White blood cells are your bodies disease fighting cells. They are part of your immune system. Platelets help your blood clot and repair damaged tissue.
Week #4: September 14 - September 18
You breathe in air through your nose and mouth.
Air travels down the trachea or windpipe. Do not confuse your windpipe and your esophagus they are two separate tubes.
The trachea will then divide into two separate smaller tubes known as bronchi tubes. at the end of these are small air sacks called alveoli.
The lungs are less like balloons and more like spongy tissue created by the alveoli.
Week #3: September 8 - September 11
The right side of the heart fills with non oxygenated blood from the body. It then pumps to the lungs.
The left side of the heart receives oxygen rich blood from the lungs.
The left ventricle pumps blood out through the Aorta, the largest artery in the body.
The Aorta may be an Artery but it is also considered part of the heart.
Week #2: August 31 - September 4
The Heart is the pump that pushes blood throughout the body.
The Lungs are your body's way of obtaining oxygen. Your lungs also help your body remove carbon dioxide.
The Blood Vessels are your arteries and veins. Arteries and veins are the way that your body uses to transport nutrients to your body's cells.
Arteries cary blood away from your heart, and veins cary blood back towards your heart.
