Human Body Series - Cardiovascular System Activity

Which activity gets your heart pumping more: using the computer, climbing the stairs, jumping a rope, running, or walking? Youngsters take a heart rate reading after 30 seconds, one minute, and three minutes of each activity. Directions and a data table for organizing results are included on the handout. This exercise is relevant to an outstanding lesson plan by the same publisher on the heart. A video is available as well!
