The Heart of the Matter

Upper elementary pupils learn about the blood transportation system and anatomy of the human heart. They fill in an outline of the human heart  (not included) focusing on the flow of blood to and from the heart. Using stethoscopes, they track blood flow in resting and elevated states. Includes links to interactive support materials that are integral to the activity. Recommended for Inspiration software, but it's not required. This resource has the makings of a strong, engaging lesson, but you will need to flesh it out on your own.
