Monday: B Day

 

Aim: What is your pulse rate?

 

Do Now: Take a lab work packet and your lab folder to your desk. Record this lab #26: Making Connections; state lab

 

Procedure: Students will make observations about themselves and their classmates, They will look for patterns and or connections. We will discuss what a pulse is and then students will practice taking their pulse. They will take their pulse three times and then average their pulse rates for their data tables. Collect data from the class and write on overhead transparency. Students will construct a bar graph with the collected data.  Students will then go to the questions in their lab packets and answer them. TO continue with this activity students will exercise doing jumping jacks and they will record their pulses after one minute. Record results. Ask four classmates what their results were.  Respond to question.
