Straight from the Heart

Students explore the heart and its functions. In this lesson plan about the heart, students use observation to understand the heart. Students construct a heart model, watch the vibration of their pulse, and listen to a heartbeat with a stethoscope. Students gain understanding of the heart chambers, a regular heartbeat, what it sounds like and how many beats per minute it should be.

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
