Break hearts with this lesson; chicken or sheep hearts, that is! Your class examines the external and internal structure of the heart with a dissection activity. Extremely detailed notes are provided for you to safely guide learners through the exploration. It is highly recommended that you access and teach the previous two lessons that are part of the same unit on the heart and circulation so that pupils are already familiar with the structures they will be looking at. If you cannot purchase class sets of hearts, you could opt to dissect one as a demonstration.
Students explore how the heart works, examine pictures of a troubled heart, and discuss how to keep the heart healthy.
Fifth graders explore the human heart and label all of its parts. In this the heart instructional activity, 5th graders examine how the human heart works. Students discuss ways in which they can keep their heart healthy and complete the "label the Heart's Parts" activity sheet.
Students mode the transport of blood through the circulatory system with a water relay. In this circulation lesson plan, students measure amounts of water and transfer them from one container to another. They use this activity to model the movement of blood through the circulatory system.
Fifth graders examine how a red blood cell travels throughout the body. Using a model, they recreate the flow of blood through the heart. They also label the lungs and the differece between the blood that enters the heart and the blood that leaves the heart.
Students design a mobile or wall hanging that reviews the circulatory system. In this circulatory system lesson, students work in small groups to identify the structures of the heart, and create a model in the form of a two or three dimensional structure. A written description must accompany the model.
Fifth graders examine how a red blood cell travels throughout the body. Using a model, they follow the flow of blood throughout the entire body. They identify the functions of the lungs and discuss the difference of the blood entering and leaving the heart.
In this heart anatomy instructional activity, students study the diagram of the heart and write in the terms to complete the diagram: aortic valve, multi valve, pulmonary valve, left ventricle, right ventricle, aorta, pulmonary artery, right atrium, muscle wall of heart, tricuspid valve, and left atrium.
Circulate this news: the heart is a pump containing one-way valves! Following the previous activity on the external structure of the heart, learners now take a look at the inside. They use a three-color diagram to label a black-and-white photograph of a human heart cross section. If working through the entire unit, they also take time to add to their concept maps. When you want to get deep into the heart with your middle schoolers, this activity will take you there!
Aspiring anatomists label a photograph of a human heart by comparing it to a colored diagram on the same page. The video that is mentioned in the procedure does not seem to be available, but the overview provides plentiful background information, a detailed set of instructions, and a crisp worksheet focused on the external view of the heart. Classroom slides that you can project for a larger view of the image are available at the publisher's website. Use the lesson alone or in conjunction with the next lesson in the larger unit, which takes a look at the interior of the heart.
Teach your exercise enthusiasts to read their pulse rate at the radial artery for 15 seconds and multiply by four to calculate beats per minute. Have them perform a variety of activities, recording their heart rates after one minute of each. Though this is a classic activity to conduct when studying the heart, this particular resource provides extensive background information and a detailed lab sheet that will keep your heart rate in check as you prepare! If you are interested, how the blood is affected by space travel can also be discussed with your class.
Students examine organisms that are composed of tissues, organs, and systems. They dissect a fetal pig and explore the assigned organs systems such as the skeletal, muscular, and circulatory organs. Students identify and explain their organ and its function to other their peers.
In groups of six, anatomy and physiology fans imitate how blood flows from place to place in the circulatory system. They will discover that different sizes of vessels transport various volumes of blood. The activity requires the class to actually construct and calibrate their own measurement cups, which requires more time that the demonstration itself; but as long as you follow up with an in-depth discussion, it would be worthwhile. The lesson is part of a larger unit by a trustworthy source, but it can stand alone as well.
Assess anatomists' understanding of the structure of the mammalian heart by giving a pretest. Have them visit some websites to further learn about heart anatomy. Then take them into the laboratory to perform a dissection so that they get hands-on experience. There are handouts, background information, detailed procedures, modifications, and extensions all rolled into this resource. Use it to pump up your biology class when studying anatomy or the circulatory system.
Watch as the Khan Academy explains why red bloods are efficient carriers of hemoglobin and explains the difference between pulmonary arteries and veins. This thorough video with great explanations and diagrams will surely help your biologists or beginning anatomists.
Students discuss health. In this healthy heart lesson, students discover the functions of veins and arteries and what a healthy heart sounds like. They discuss as a class the different parts of the heart and get a chance to listen to a partners heart through a stethoscope. This lesson includes a resource link and worksheets that go along with this activity.
Seventh graders dissect animals to investigate their anatomy. In this life science instructional activity, 7th graders name at least three different internal organs. They explain the functions of these organs.
Students explore several examples of cardiovascular diseases. In this anatomy lesson plan, students explain why physical fitness is very important. They count their pulse rate and record them on a data table.
In this cardiac worksheet, students read through notes then answer 28 review questions in the format of short answer, labeling, matching, true or false, and fill in the blank.
In this cardiovascular instructional activity, students read through notes, label 2 diagrams, and complete 15 review questions in the format of short answer and matching.
