Jim Holland, Educator & Author, from Arlington, TX has provided this deck and science activity for middle school.
In this activity, students sequence the pathway of blood flow through the body by arranging cards in a clockwise sequence. Then, students demonstrate their understanding of oxygen levels in the blood by changing each card’s color according to the amount of oxygen present in each stage.
- Open the Circulation Pathway deck in the iCardSort application.
- Drag the cards to sequence them according to pathway of blood flow through the body. Start with the right atrium at the top and work around in a clockwise direction.
- Once you have the cards sequenced, change the color of each card according to this key: Red = oxygen-rich Blue= oxygen-deprived Purple = site of oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange
- Add a green card to the deck and place it in the center of the circle of arranged cards. Enter your name and class period number on the card.
