Our The Circulatory System lesson plan engages students as they explore the parts of the circulatory system and their functions. Students also explore how they can feel their pulse and what causes their heart to beat in this hands-on lesson. During this lesson, students are asked to create their own flashcards with lesson vocabulary, and then use this lesson vocabulary to complete a crossword puzzle, demonstrating their understanding of the definitions of these words.
At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to identify the parts of the circulatory system and their functions, including the parts and substances in the blood, and define high blood pressure.
