In this activity, learners investigate circulation and measure their own your heartbeat. A heart rate, or pulse, is the number of times the heart beats per minute.
Why Circulate?Add to list Details
In this activity related to the human circulatory system (on page 10 of the PDF), learners observe the dispersion of a drop of food coloring in water, draw conclusions about the movement of dissolved
The Pulse is RightAdd to list Details
In this online activity, learners measure their pulse rates and investigate how their pulses change when they engage in different activities.
Under Pressure: Your Blood PressureAdd to list Details
During this lesson, learners will determine their blood pressure and learn about systolic and diastolic pressures.
Pulse of Life: Measure Your PulseAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners take their own pulse and explore how heart rate is affected by various activities.
Inside OutAdd to list Details
Learners draw and cut out shapes of organs from construction paper. Then they attach these organs to the body of one learner to make a life-sized map of all the internal organs.
The Heart as a PumpAdd to list Details
Learners will build a homemade pump using a balloon, a mason jar, and some straws.
Examining the HeartAdd to list Details
In this activity about the heart (on page 22 of the PDF), learners examine sheep or chicken hearts to learn about the heart's structure and the flow of blood through the heart.
What Goes Around Comes Around
In this simulation activity, learners act as parts of the circulatory system and discover how it serves as a transport system for food/nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide and waste.
Respiration RelayAdd to list Details
In this physical activity, groups of learners act as blood cells traveling through the circulatory system.
Go with the Flow
In this activity, learners discover how hard their hearts work to pump blood.
This experiment is designed to illustrate how fluids, including water, have the ability to flow.
The Nose Knows!
In this activity on page 9 of the PDF, learners test how flavoring extracts move through the walls of a balloon.
Lub Dub: Make a Heart ValveAdd to list Details
Learners will construct a model of a heart valve using a film canister, a piece of masking tape, and a piece of paper.
What is Blood Pressure?Add to list Details
In this activity about heart health (on page 34 of the PDF), learners measure their own blood pressure using an electronic blood pressure monitor with a self-inflating cuff (included in cost of materi
Slowing the Flow
In this experiment, pairs of learners explore how cold water affects circulation. The mammalian diving reflex (MDR) slows circulation when the body is exposed to cold water.
Circulatory System Skit: Act out the Flow of BloodAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners act out the flow of blood in the human body! A great way to get learners up and moving while learning about the circulatory system.
Heart Rate and ExerciseAdd to list Details
In this activity about heart health (on page 27 of the PDF), learners measure their heart rates after a variety of physical activities and compare the results with their resting heart rates, and with
Sounds of the HeartAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will investigate the sounds of the heart.
All Systems are Go!Add to list Details
In this online activity, learners role-play as medics, treating a patient with missing organs. Learners select different organs, then drag them into the proper location in the patient's body.
