    From the right ventricle -> Pulmonary Artery (deoxygenated) -> Lung -> Pulmonary Vein(oxygenated) -> Left Atrium -> Left Ventricle -> Aorta -> Arteries around the body-> capillaries -> Veins (deoxygenated) -> Vena Cava -> Right Atrium -> Right ventricle... Repeat.

    To add to the above:

    The tricuspid valve separates Right Atrium and Right Ventricle.
    The pulmonary semilunar valve separates Right Ventricle and pulmonary artery.
    The bicuspid (mitral) valve separates Left Atrium and Left Ventricle.
    The aortic semilunar valve separates Left Ventricle and aorta.
    Arteries branch into arterioles and then capillaries.
    Capillaries come together into venules which become veins.
