Students explore the major causes of heat attacks as the topics of the human circulatory system, blood pressure, heart disease, arteries and veins are examined. Opinions on the topics are developed as researched material is presented to the group.
Ninth graders examine the causes and effects of Heart Disease. In this ESL Current Events lesson plan, 9th graders read an article on Heart Disease. Students complete guided questions on the reading.
Young scholars investigate the dangers associated with heart disease. They conduct research in order to find some of the risk factors associated with contracting the disease. Students make a life health plan in order to prevent the adult onset of heart disease.
Students examine the primary controllable and uncontrollable factors that put one at greater risk for developing heart disease. Through discussion, research, physical tests, and questionnaires they determine whether or not they are at risk of some day having a heart attack. They explore how to make lifestyle choices that encourage good cardiovascular and general health.
Students study heart disease and how to prevent it.  In this investigative lesson students list heart disease and stroke risk factors. 
Interpret data and learn about the human heart in one activity! After learning about the way blood flows in the body, fifth graders answer two questions about a graph displaying pulse rate. They then take their own pulses to find the difference between resting and active heart rate.
Students explore biology by completing a human anatomy activity. In this human heart lesson, students identify the purpose of the heart within the body and count their heart beats. Students record their pulse while not moving and after a physical event.
Middle schoolers explore basic heart anatomy, review basic definition of heart disease, research different tests used to diagnose heart disease and heart attacks, discuss what constitutes a "healthy heart" lifestyle, and incorporate it into their daily habits. Students then prepare Powerpoint presentation on their research.
Take a look at this four-page handout on exercise and the heart. Heart disease is the number one killer in the US, and most of that could be prevented. Learn about the benefits of physical activity and a longer healthier life. Check out some myths about exercise and what it really takes to stay in shape. Then answer the questions on the two-page activity.
Students assess their risk of heart disease. In this adult health lesson, students differentiate saturated and unsaturated fats. They discuss different heart healthy food ideas.
Fifth graders view a transparency of the human heart and answer questions based on their observations. They read pages from their textbook and discuss the information presented. They visit a website to view the human heart and create a model at home.
Click on this link and find two animated graphics of the pumping human heart. The path of blood-flow is listed in steps. The connection to the "teacher lesson plan information" does not work, but there are other links to superb resources on this page. Create a reading comprehension worksheet and have your young biologists visit this website as homework. This is a valuable resource to use when working on the human body system or organs.
Fourth graders get into groups and brainstorm ways to obtain physical activity and different healthy foods to eat. They then develop and write and individual plan for healthy living and commit to enforcing their plan for a minimum of one week, recording their activity.
Students create a PowerPoint presentation on heart disease.  In this creative lesson students include symptoms, causes, treatments and ideas for prevention in their presentation. 
Fifth graders make their observations about the structure of the human heart. Students trace the flow of blood through the human heart. They touch a model of the human heart, 5th graders read aloud a handout that is found in their biology books ( Science Explorer: Human Biology and Health).
In this human heart quiz worksheet, students complete an on-line game, clicking on questions and matching answer cards and scoring 1 point per correct answer. Printable version available also.

After reading an excellent description of the human heart, fifth graders look at a drawing of a human body, and choose the circle they think represents where the human heart is found. There are four circles inside the character's chest. The pulse is also a part of the learning, and there's an excellent at-home activity described.
Because medical terms can be confusing, this lecture helps the student to understand what each means and how they refer to the human condition of heart disease.
Students play a game to explore the relationship between genetic variation and environmental factors in the onset of heart disease. They consider the implications for disease prevention of increased knowledge about genetic variation.
