The Circulatory System:

A Unit of Study

Last updated 26 October 2003

This unit of study focuses on the human circulatory system. The links in this unit direct students to pages that present many aspects of the system including the heart, the movement of blood, and the vessels. In addition, the unit includes sites for viewing open heart surgery and virtual dissections as well as sites for learning about and diagnosing heart conditions. Finally, the unit incorporates information for maintaining a healthy heart.
This unit was designed for sixth grade students. Since Michigan's curriculum calls for the dissection of animal hearts in the sixth grade, I assume students at this level will find the unit to be relevant and interesting.
