We’re always looking for ways to improve. If you’ve got feedback or suggestions about how we can do better, we’d love to hear from you.
Finish your journey through the human body with a ride through the bloodstream to visit all the organs in our body. Our resource breaks down each system of the human body to make it easier to understand as a whole. Start off by exploring the arteries, veins and capillaries. Examine your own heartbeat as you learn how to take your pulse. Then, follow the red blood cells as they bring oxygen to the rest of the body. Discover how the food we eat travels down to our stomach and gets digested. Learn how we get energy from that food, and what happens to waste that our body cannot digest. Travel through the excretory system to learn about all the different organs that help us get rid of waste. Build a model of a kidney to see it working in action. Finally, find out how two cells come together to create life. Aligned to the Next Generation State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on experiments, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
