Biology KS3 & KS4: Human circulatory and digestive system
A look at respiration and a tour around the circulatory system and digestive system.
Using detailed CGI images, it takes the student inside blood vessels.
There is a detailed description of red blood cells and their journey around the body including the way that they are adapted to carry oxygen.
It also has up-close images of mitochondria and the villi inside the small intestine.
Students could make models of red blood cells in capillaries or of mitochondria.
Alternatively, they could draw a journey to the mitochondria for two characters - an oxygen atom and a glucose molecule.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Biology at KS3 and KS4/GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 4/5 in Scotland. Appears in AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL, CCEA, WJEC, SQA
