Purpose of Event: To see if students understand various lesson outcomes related to the heart unit presented.

Learning outcomes addressed:

The heart is a special muscle which beats every minute to the day.
For a healthy body we need to work on keeping out heart healthy. We can do this by making choices - healthy food choices and keeping active and fit.

b) Children should be able to identify habits that lead to feelings of wellness vs. unwellness (pg. 2). They are to provide examples of aerobic activities (active habits) and healthy food choices, as was explored during the previous units of work.

c) Children should be able to recall that their heart is a big as their fist - and demonstrate this drawing outline of fist on sheet (pg. 3)

d) Children should be able to locate correctly position of heart within the rib-cage (e.g., slightly left of the middle) (pg.3)
