This activity would best be used in a Psychology or AP Psychology course as an example of classical conditioning.
Students get with a partner and perform a classical conditioning experiment. They use a Neutral Stimulus (in this case, shouting JUMP AROUND!) in association with jumping rope to produce an increased heart rate to the shouting.
The worksheet has step-by-step directions for the kids, asks them to record their heart rate data, and asks follow-up questions which include having the students label the process (US, UR, NS, CS, CR) and create examples of what generalization/discrimination/higher-order conditioning would look like.
Please note that the fonts "Candara" and "Lithos Pro Regular" are used in these documents. If your computer does not have these fonts installed, it will automatically replace them with a default font, which will cause it to look different than the screenshots indicated and require you to re-format the slides.
