Circulation
Getting Oxygen and Nutrients to your Body

Grades 4-6

By measuring their own heart rates and examining actual heart specimens,
students explore the components of the cardiovascular system (heart,
lungs, veins, arteries, capillaries, and blood) and learn to see them as
interconnected elements of a single dynamic system. Students apply the
scientific method by analyzing the effect of a factor (height, gender,
physical activity, or emotions) on the resting heart rates of the class
members.
