The figure 6.10 given in NCERT book is a simple diagram of heart. For drawing this figure well, you need to first understand the structure of heart as well as its functioning. Remember points like:

  • The right side of heart carries deoxygenated blood whereas the left side carries oxygenated blood.
  • The wall of ventricles is thicker than that of atria
  • The direction of flow of blood (eg- from vena cava to right atrium to right ventricle to pulmonary arteries to lungs for purification)

Constant practice will make it easy for you to draw the figure quickly.
