what do you already know about this topic?
Respiration - delivers oxygen to the cells and removing carbon dioxide from them Nutrition - carries digested food substances to the cells of the body Waste Removal - disposes of waste products and poisons that would harm the body if they accumulated Immunity - helps protect the body from disease Cellular Communication - the circulatory system provides a mode of transport for hormones Thermoregulation - the circulatory system transports heat (can both warm and cool body) Heart - which is a muscular pump that contracts to propel blood out to the body through arteries, and a series of blood vessels. The upper chamber of the heart, the atrium, is where the blood enters the heart. Passing through a valve, blood enters the lower chamber, the ventricle. Contraction of the ventricle forces blood from the heart through an artery.
