Circulatory System

Circulatory System

The Life Pump

circulatorysystem

The Circulatory System moves nutrients to the cells of the body to feed them and help them fight disease. The main parts of the Circulatory System are the heart, blood and blood vessels. Arteries carry blood and the oxygen in it from the lungs to all of the other cells of the body. Once the oxygen is used, veins carry the blood back to the heart. Inside the heart are four chambers. Each chamber is a little pump that pushes the blood through the body. It takes 1-2 minutes for blood to circulate all around your body.

Excretory System

Excretory System
excretorysystem The Excretory System removes waste that collects in the body during metabolism. Metabolism is when the bady takes in air, food and liquid. The body uses most of these things to grow and make energy, but the body can’t use all of it. The leftovers are called waste. These waste products can be toxic if they are not eliminated. Major organs of the excretory system include the kidneys, liver, bladder, lungs and large intestine. Yes, even the lungs – when you exhale, the lungs eliminate gases your body can’t use.
