Title of Bulletin Board: Lub Dub, Lub Dub
Category: About the Body
Suggested Grade Level: 3-5
Materials: Bulletin Board Paper, Boarder, Cut out Letters, photos of the heart, parts of the heart (words)
This board was created during our Cardiovascular System Unit, which focus on the parts of the heart, the blood flow pattern and how the heart pumps. Students were taught that the "Lub Dub" sound that comes from the heart, is the atrium and ventricles pumping both the oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood to the body and the lungs. As a part of this unit, students learned how to find their pulse, count their heart beats for 6 seconds, and then multiply the amount of beats by 10 to get their heart rate. They also learned what their target heart rate zone is, and how that number changes for every year you grow older.
