How does exercise affect blood pressure? With a blood pressure meter and a simple activity, kids will discover the answer, then discuss a few follow-up questions. In the procedure, one of the suggested activities has learners getting up and down on a chair, which could pose a safety risk; going with the jumping jacks option may be best. Additionally, be sure to find out if any pupils have asthma or other conditions which might make this activity difficult; those children could assist in blood pressure readings and record data for others.
