In this astronomy activity (page 3 of the PDF), learners will examine the effects of gravity on a person’s pulse and explore how gravity can differ from planet to planet.
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 explore how to stay fit the fun way. Learners participate in three physical activities.
In this outdoor activity linking human health to the environment, learners use their pulse rates as a measure of the effort expended in walking on different slopes.
In this outdoor winter activity, learners search for and create hibernation sites that will protect gelatin "animals" from freezing.
In this environmental health activity, learners investigate their breathing and pulse rates, and learn how these measurements are affected by physical activity.
In this activity about daily rhythms (on page 17 of the PDF), learners will explore circadian patterns in humans, animals and plants.
In this activity, learners take their own pulse and explore how heart rate is affected by various activities.
In this self-measuring activity, learners observe and record how many times a minute they blink, take a breath, and chew, as well as how many times a minute their heart beats.
In this activity, learners explore the importance of active play.
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.
In this health activity, learners create a device so that they not only feel their heartbeat, but also see it, using a straw and some clay.
In this activity, learners compare ways to measure their heart rates. Learners build their own stethoscopes and learn how exercise affects heart rate.
In this activity, learners discover how exercise helps keep the body healthy. Learners increase their heart rates by running and understand how running fast versus walking affects their pulse rates.
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.
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
