The apex of the heart is inferior and the base is superior. Label each chamber of the heart and color them each a different color. Locate the coronary arteries and their branches and color them in red. The right coronary artery leads to the right marginal artery. The left coronary artery takes blood to the anterior interventricular branch and the circumflex branch. The cardiac veins can also be seen on the anterior side. The great cardiac vein runs in the interventricular sulcus on the anterior side. Label all of the major vessels entering and exiting the heart.
