7th Grade: Heartbeats on Valentine’s Day

The 7th Grade celebrated Valentine’s Day with a special guest appearance by Nurse Cathy Gorman. The class is in the middle of their Physiology main lesson block, and Nurse Gorman brought her stethoscopes to enable the students to hear each other’s heartbeats. Above, 7th graders experience the famous “lub-dub” of the human heartbeat. Below, more students experience the heartbeat after completing vigorous jumping jacks. What a difference! The class then drew a color picture in their main lesson books of the human circulatory system.
