Activity 2B: Getting Around Pulmo Park: Pulmonary Circulation Activity Suggestion

The focus of this activity is to teach students about the pulmonary circulation in their bodies. Students will be learning how blood circulates to and from the lungs. They will follow the veins carrying oxygen depleted blood from the body to the heart, which pumps it to the lungs. The lungs will enrich the blood with oxygen and return it to the heart to be pumped to the rest of the body.

Keywords: 

Carbon dioxide, oxygen, design, heart, pulmonary circulation, oxygen depleted blood, lungs
