Storyboard Text

  • Artery 
  • The Red Blood Cells are created in the bones. They move around within capillaries and travel through areteries and veins.  
  • Red Blood Cells
  • Capillaries 
  • Vein
  • After the red blood cells have traveled through the body, they return to the heart through the vena cava de-oxygenated. 
  • Heart
  • After the right ventricle receives the red blood cells, the right ventricle contracts and pushes the red blood cells out of the heart through the pulmonary valve and out the pulmonary artery. 
  • The de-oxygenated blood enters into the right atrium. There the right atrium contracts and pushes the blood into the right ventricle through the opening of the tricuspid valve. 
  • The red blood cells are then oxygenated in the lungs and returned to the hear via the pulmonary vein.
  • There, the red blood cells enter the left atrium.
  • The left atrium contracts and pushes the red blood cells through the mitral valve into the left ventricle. 
  • The left ventricle contracts and pushes the red blood cells through the aortic valve and into the body through the aorta. 
  • The red blood cells leave the aorta and travel to the lower parts of the human body (legs). After, the red bloods cells make their way to the rest of the body. 
  • Aorta
  • And the process repeats with the de-oxygenated blood coming back to the heart after it exchanged oxygen and nutrients with the tissues.
