A great PowerPoint presentation with notes on how to teach children the basics of our heart muscles.
The PowerPoint covers:
-size of heart
-location of heart
-the sound of heart makes
-the job of the heart muscle
-the heart never stops working (even when we're asleep!) and we do not have to think about making it work
-the importance of a healthy heart
A great follow up to this lesson is my Healthy Heart Coloring Page.
