Human systems

Everything in the world is made up of different parts that work together to perform a function. These parts can be living or non-living, and they can be small or large. When these parts work together, they form a system. Here, we will understand two human systems: the respiratory system and the circulatory system in humans. 

Digestive System

Essential Takeaways

  • The respiratory system is responsible for breathing, which is essential for the release of energy. 
  • The circulatory system is responsible for transporting oxygen, carbon-di-oxide and nutrients to different parts of the body. 

Learning Objectives

  • Name the parts of respiratory and circulatory systems in humans. 
  • Describe the function of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. 

Core ideas

  • Systems are made up of different parts. 
  • Each part of a system has its own unique function. 
  • Different parts of a system influence and work together to perform a specific function. 

Points to Remember

  • The respiratory system includes the nose, respiratory tract, lungs, and diaphragm. 
  • The circulatory system includes the heart, blood vessels, and blood.
