Students will take their pulse after laying down, standing up, and jogging in place. They will compare their pulse after each activity and brainstorm why our heart beats faster after physical activity. They will also compare their own pulse to a partner's pulse and discuss why everyone's pulse is a little different.
If you want to have your students do more trials, calculate an average pulse, and answer higher level questions at the end of the lab, check out my high school version here:
