Grade 5 - Hard Working Heart
It beats like a drum supporting all life. Join us on a cardiovascular journey. Explore parts of the heart and how it works using a plasticized real pig's heart. Compare real heart specimens and see if you can identify the creature it belonged to? Partner up in a fun activity to test your pulse. Participate in experiments that explore the heart as a pump and how red blood cells travel through the circulatory system. Identify common diseases of the heart and circulatory system and preventative measures we can take one beat at a time.
