Circulatory System

The Life Pump


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.

Lol I have a test tomorrow and I’m pretty much desperate because I have no idea what the circulatory system is and I have to get the test SIGNED and I don’t wanna disappoint my mom and it’s the beginning of the school year so it’s kinda important. I just got on this site…. Is it any good? The results are kinda mixed up in the comments….. Lol
