The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body. It is also involved in the removal of metabolic wastes.

In this activity, students use online and paper resources to identify and label the main parts of the heart.

By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

  • identify the main parts of a heart
  • describe the functions of the different parts of the heart.

This online interactive supports students to identify the different parts of the heart and the role they have in blood circulation. It can be used as both a formative and summative tool for learning.
