Part 1 Layers of the Blood Vessels Organizer: A graphic organizer of the blood vessel layers with explanations of the structure and function of each layer will be created by students.
Part 2 Structure and Function of Blood Vessels Concept Map and Venn Diagram: Students will then be able to describe the structure and function of different blood vessels by using images to complete a concept map and Venn diagram. In groups, students will be able to compare cross section images of veins, arteries, and capillaries. Students will have the opportunity to identify and observe the differences of the blood vessel layers and describe them in their graphic organizer.
Part 3 Blood Flow Mat: A kinesthetic activity will be used to help students observe the inner workings of the blood vessels to further help define the structure and function of veins, arteries, and capillaries and to explore pulmonary and systemic circulation.
