Product Description
Can kindergartners and first graders do science investigations? Of course, they can and they love it. Investigate the effects of increasing exercise on your heart rate. Low prep activity that is lots of fun. Great for teaching the scientific method, variables, and graphing. Teachers will appreciate the ease of use and students will love getting active in class.

This journal is formatted with the younger scientist in mind. It focuses on one change in the experiment. Students are able to easily construct a hypothesis and clearly explain the results in the end.

This investigation looks at the effects of increasing the exercise on your heart rate. Students will follow the scientific method to answer the question. The journal contains 6 well-organized pages and the answer key. They will learn where to find their pulse and rank how fast it is. By the end of the investigation students should be able to:

* Choose a hypothesis and investigate the answer.
* Explain that as exercise increases my heart beats faster
* Record observations and data.
* Create a bar graph
*Summarize the results of the experiment in an age-appropriate way.
*Find possible errors in the experiment.
