If I only had a heart …

This is one of my favourite topics 🙂  We’ll learn about the human transport system – blood, blood vessels and the heart.

These are the one and two presentations that we will use in class. This one from Mr Hobbins also very good: How-your-Heart-beats and 6.2 Transport

And for all you budding surgeons, here is a virtual heart transplant to try.

Just a few of the questions we need to answer:

  • What is blood made of?
  • Why do we need a transport system?
  • How is the structure of the heart related to its function?
  • Why and how is the structure of arteries, veins and capillaries different?
  • How is heart rate controlled?
