    2. Blood
    3. Blood Vessels
  2. Appreciate the interconnection among the various parts of the circulatory system.

    2. Blood (fluid)
    3. Blood vessels (network)
    The heart pumps liquid blood through blood vessels.

Rationale:

As blood flows in the body of human beings it passes within specific parts. The learners need to know the major parts of the circulatory system so that they understand their bodies and how they work together.

Prerequisite/ Previous knowledge:

The learners know what a system is.
