In this activity about the baroreceptor reflex (BR) arc (page 123 of the PDF), learners discover the importance of maintaining adequate arterial blood pressure through a role playing exercise.
Your heart pumps blood throughout your body in one direction, around in a loop. In this activity, learners will make a model of one type of heart chamber called a ventricle.
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.
This activity (on pages 16-23) lets learners measure each other's vital signs—the signs that help doctors understand what's going on in a patient body.
In this activity, learners use plastic tubing and a funnel to listen to their heart. Learners also discover that if they run around, their heart pumps harder and faster, making it easier to hear.
This activity gets learners looking at 6-sided shapes in nature, including the cells of a beehive, as well as other shapes.
In this online activity, learners measure their pulse rates and investigate how their pulses change when they engage in different activities.
In this environmental health activity, learners investigate their breathing and pulse rates, and learn how these measurements are affected by physical activity.
This is a demonstration you can use to show learners how valves and pumps work in concert to move blood through the circulatory system.
In this activity, learners take their own pulse and explore how heart rate is affected by various activities.
Learners will build a homemade pump using a balloon, a mason jar, and some straws.
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.
In this activity, learners explore the concept of valve operation and how engineers have adapted valves for use in mechanical heart valve design.
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.
In this activity, learners discover how hard their hearts work to pump blood.
Make a copy of the first stethoscope with only a cardboard tube! René Laennec invented the first stethoscope in 1819 using an actual paper tube!
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
In this activity (page 105 of the PDF), learners measure heart rate and blood pressure and learn how to obtain consistent measurements during repeated tests.
In this activity, learners discover how their heart rate changes in different situations.
