The Heart – Science this week!

This week we were learning about the heart and how it works. We found out that our hearts are about the size of a clenched fist. We know that the heart pumps blood around our bodies- so our heart is very important to keep us alive.

We counted our heart beats for 6 seconds using a stethoscope or finding our pulse and then multiplied that by 10 to find out how many beats our heart were doing each minute.

We took our resting heart rate and also did some exercises to see if the number of beats changed depending on what we were doing.  We were amazed at how many beats our heart did at times!

We also compared our resting heart rate and researched where ours should be for our age.

We are going to learn more about the body next week!

P3a and Miss Christie
