This What is Blood Pressure? activity & project also includes:
Find out how we describe the force created by the blood against the walls of the vessels in a heart-pumping lesson! As part of a unit on the heart and circulatory system, cardiology kids use a blood pressure monitor to find their systolic and diastolic pressures. To conclude the lesson, they discuss how blood pressure relates to health and graph class member's readings. As well-written as this lesson plan is, pressure to prepare will be removed from your heart!
