Our Human Heart lesson plan introduces students to the human heart and its importance to the circulatory system and the human body. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create a poster either showing the movement of blood through the heart and to the body or showing how a person can maintain a healthy heart, and students must include drawings or pictures and accurate information; once finished, students must present their posters to the class. Students are also asked to label a diagram of a heart in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain the heart’s role as part of the circulatory system of the human body, name and label parts of the heart, and list some other facts related to the human heart.
