In this interdisciplinary lesson plan, students must complete several physical activities and monitor their heart rate in order to collect data and make predictions about the effects of exercise on one's heartrate. The lesson includes charts to track data, a graph to display data, suggested questions, and literature resources.

      Great connection to Health and Physical Education

    • I love activities that tie together different curricular areas. In addition to getting kids moving, learning about health, there are also some literature connections suggested in this activity.
