Heartbeat

Third graders examine the instrument called the stethoscope as it relates to listening the human heart. In this heartbeat lesson, 3rd graders work in pairs to listen to their partner's heartbeat and count the number of beats per 30 seconds. Students run in place for one minute then listen to their heartbeat again then subtract the first number from the second number to determine how many more beats per minute the heart beats after exercise.
