In this lab students will measure their resting pulse and compare it to their pulse standing up and their pulse while holding their breath. This is an excellent lab to do during your scientific method unit because students practice all the steps of the scientific method and have to identify the control and variables at the end.
If you want to have your students do fewer trials and answer simpler questions at the end of the lab, check out my middle school version here:
