Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

The Zone - during class students learned how to find their heart rate by checking their carotid and radial arteries. The Zone was a bulletin board made in the corner of the gym for students to check their heart rate anytime during the lesson. The bulletin board reminds the students how to find their pulse and how to calculate their heart rate. It also provides them with a training zone as immediate feedback as to their level of exertion in class.
