Investigating Heart Rate with Elementary Students



How does exercise affect your heart rate?  Students will learn how to take their pulse to compare their heart rate while doing different activities.


Each grade level version expands from the other.  This investigation is a great introduction to the scientific method.  Students will also learn about independent and dependent variable.  Older students will create a graph and write a conclusion. 

This is a great introduction to writing a lab report.  STEM is about educating students about science related careers.  In science you will read, write, and evaluate lots of lab reports.  It is a big part of the job if you are a chemist, biologist, or any field related to product testing.  Introducing elementary students to investigation journals will help them be more comfortable in higher level science classes later on.  

The best part, all you need is a second hand, chair, and yourself.  Great for classrooms, science fairs, and teaching multiple grade levels at once.

Here's what teachers are saying about

Investigating Heart Rate.


Thank you so much for making this. It saved me so much time and the students loved doing this experiment.

Loved this Lab!

Kids love this! Fun lab activity!

Nice addition to our Human Body packet! It was fun for the kids to do!

I used this when teaching health to my 3rd graders! I only have 30 minutes per class with health, so I did have to break it up into two lessons, but I love that it is all bundled into one packet! Definitely will reuse this each year!

This will be a great resource to use with my K & One students. Thank you!

2016 was a great year of teaching.  I focused on Matter and Its Interactions and Forces and Motion.  These topics are so much fun to teach.  I make sure every product I post is something I have used in my own teaching.  I also have to keep a budget in mind.  Here are the top 5 selling products in my store for 2016.  I think you will like the use of simple supplies with great impact.
