Science Experiment at Home! The Pumping Heart Model
We have learnt a lot about the heart recently. Let's do a revision and then you can try this experiment at home!
The heart pumps blood all around the body. The left side of the heart pumps blood that contain oxygen around the body through the arteries. The blood travel from the arteries into capillaries where it delivers oxygen and nutrients to every parts of the body.
Veins take the blood back to the right side of the heart. It is then pumped to the lungs.
Artery- Away from the heart
Vein- In the heart
The heart has two features that keep blood flowing in the right directions. These are chambers and valves. The chambers fill with blood and then squeeze to pump the blood out. The upper chamber is called an atrium and the lower chamber is called a ventricle. There is a valve between the atrium and the ventricle that control the direction of the flow of blood between these two chambers.
Now, who is ready to make a heart model at home?
You will need the following:
A clean and transparent jar
Red food colouring
2 plastic straws
When you push down on the balloon this is like your heart is contracting and squeezing the heart chambers. This pushes blood out of the heart and into the arteries.
