Human Body Series - Cardiovascular System

Pump up your class while studying the cardiovascular system with this pair of activities. In one, learners record heart rates during different actions. In the second, they read kid-friendly heart health articles online and then write a haiku reflecting what they learned. A data table and haiku worksheet are both included as well as the URLs for the related articles. Consider assigning small groups different articles to read and write about and then have them each report to the class on their subtopic or cardiovascular health. Also, be aware that the articles and video have been updated since the publication of this lesson plan, keeping it fresh for classroom use.
