2 What is the function of the circulatory system? The function of the circulatory system is divided into two parts. The cardiovascular system delivers nutrients to the cells of the body through the blood. Blood is pumped by the heart and carried to the tissues and cells through the blood vessels.

3 What are the parts of the circulatory system?. The parts of the circulatory system are the heart, the blood vessels, and the blood.

4 What does each part of the system do? The heart pumps blood throughout the body. The veins carry blood back to the heart. (the blue color is used to show blood with carbon dioxide) The artery carries blood away from the heart.
