Our Circulatory System Lesson Plan engages students as they explore the parts of the circulatory system and their functions, including the parts and substances in blood, and defines high blood pressure.  Students also explore how they can feel their pulse and what causes their heart to beat in this hands-on lesson.

Sample Classroom Procedure Snippet:

  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Instruct students on how to use their pulse to count the number of beats in one minute, using 15 second intervals.
  4. You may have students use their own pulses, or pair students to count each other’s’ heartbeats using the pulse.
  5. Ask students why there may be different heart rates among the students. Allow for responses and discussion.
  6. Ask students if they know what causes the heart to beat, and how they can feel it in their pulse. Allow for responses and discussion.
