What affects your heart rate?

The circulatory system (Ages 9- 11)

Help your child learn to find and take their own pulse to measure heart rate before and after exercise. You don’t need any special equipment, just a watch with seconds or a stop watch and space to jump up and down! The first video shows how to carry out an investigation to find out how exercise affects heart rate. This video will help you run this activity at home. The lesson plan will support the running of the activity. If you are interested the last two videos show Brian Cox finding out about the heart rates of athletes and how exercise affects climbers at high altitudes.
