How Does Your Heart Rate?

Encourage physical activity through this energising lesson that gets your class moving and measuring their heart rates. Students will learn how physical activity affects the heartbeat and why this is a good thing. They will reflect on their own physical activity levels and identify ways to improve them.

Recommended for Years 3 – 6.

Make a Stethoscope

Use simple everyday materials to create your very own stethoscope in this lesson. Students will use their stethoscope to listen to each other’s heartbeats and investigate whether heart rate is affected by exercise.
