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
Heart and Lungs
In this environmental health activity, learners investigate their breathing and pulse rates, and learn how these measurements are affected by physical activity.
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.
Changing Body Positions: How Does the Circulatory System Adjust?Add to list Details
In this activity about how the body regulates blood pressure (page 117 of the PDF), learners make and compare measurements of heart rate and blood pressure from three body positions: sitting, standing
Heart to Heart
In this activity, learners compare ways to measure their heart rates. Learners build their own stethoscopes and learn how exercise affects heart rate.
Space Stations: Measure Up!
In this activity, learners work in pairs to measure each other's ankles with lengths of string.
A System of TransportAdd to list Details
In this activity about the human heart (on page 5 of the PDF), learners work in teams to simulate the volume of blood moved through the circulatory system by transferring liquid into--and through--a s
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
Challenge: MicrogravityAdd to list Details
In this activity about the circulatory system and space travel (on page 38 of the PDF), learners use water balloons to simulate the effects of gravity and microgravity on fluid distribution in the bod
Circulatory System Skit: Act out the Flow of Blood
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
