Circulatory and Respiratory Review

A few resources:

Study Guide

Standards Assessed:

In multicellular organisms, the body is a system of multiple interacting subsystems. These subsystems are groups of cells that work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions. (MS-LS1-3)

Topics Covered:
1. Structures and functions of the Circulatory System - Cover sheet and readings

2. Structures and functions of the Respiratory System - Cover sheet and readings

3. How do the circulatory and respiratory system work together to perform the gas exchange? - Work sheets, constructed responses, interactive links.

4. How do we breathe? - class simulation, worksheets, interactive links

5. How does the blood flow in the heart? - performance assessment, video on blog, worksheet

6. How do molecules of oxygen flow in the respiratory system from the outside air to the alveoli? - reading, questions.
