  3. 3. The heart • The heart is a muscular organ inside the rib cage, between the lungs. • It’s about the size of your fist (closed hand)
  4. 4. But the heart muscle is special because of what it does. • The heart sends blood around your body. • The blood provides your body with the oxygen and nutrients it needs. • It also carries away waste.
  5. 5. Heart Parts • The heart is made up of four different areas, and each of these areas is called a chamber. • There are two chambers on each side of the heart. One chamber is on the top and one chamber is on the bottom. Chambers
  6. 6. Chambers • The two chambers on top are called the atrium . • The heart has a left atrium and a right atrium. • The two chambers on the bottom are called the ventricles. • The heart has a left ventricle and a right ventricle. Right Atrium Right ventricle Left Atrium Left ventricle
  7. 7. Septum • Running down the middle of the heart is a thick wall of muscle called the septum. • The septum's job is to separate the left side and the right side of the heart. Septum
  8. 8. Blood • The blood moves through many tubes called arteries, veins and capillaries. • Which together are called blood vessels.
  9. 9. Blood vessels • These blood vessels are attached to the heart. Blood vessels types • The blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart are called arteries. • The ones that carry blood back to the heart are called veins. • The tiny blood vessels that connect the smallest arteries to the smallest veins are called capillaries. Arteries Veins Capillaries
  10. 10. Blood • Blood is a red liquid that flows through blood vessels. • Blood contains liquid plasma and solid blood cells. • There are three types of blood cells: • Red blood cells • White blood cells and • Platelest.
