Biology KS3/4: Human circulation

A look at the circulatory system using the example of a baby's first breath.

A live water birth is shown and real life images combined with CGI to illustrate the anatomy and function of the circulatory system.

Teacher Notes

This clip could be used either when talking about circulation or about birth as it has good footage of both.

The coverage of circulation is a good concise summary and would be useful to use as a recap or to consolidate learning.

This footage could link to practical experiments on heart rate and respiration or students could be asked to create their own models of the circulatory and respiratory systems after watching the clip.
