Scientific Decision-making: Supplementary Activities on the Cardiovascular System
  • Grades:
  • 6-8 9-12

Students explore the heart and cardiovascular system by dissecting a sheep’s heart, building a model of coronary artery disease, creating a poster of a heart attack, and learning about signs and symptoms of a heart attack. This guide provides the following activities and readings.

  1. Heart and Circulation: Outside and Inside - How does the heart circulate blood throughout the body?

  2. Coronary Artery Disease Model - How do arteries become blocked, and how does this process lead to heart attack?

  3. Is It a Heart Attack? - What are the warning signs and symptoms of a heart attack?

The activities in this guide may be used in conjunction with the Scientific Decision-making Teacher's Guide: A Case-based Approach for Middle or High School Students.
