Subject Matter/Content: Heart rate
● Counting
● Subtracting
● Where to find your pulse
● Knowledge about exercise
● Types of exercise
Key Vocabulary:
● Cardiovascular System- made up of the heart and the blood vessels
● Heart Rate- the number of heartbeats per unit of time
● Pulse- It is a rhythm of beats that tells you how many times your heart beats.
It is usually found in the wrists or the neck.
● Resting heart rate- heart rate when you are relaxing and at rest. Best read
right after one wakes up
● Active heart rate- heart rate after one has been exercising for a period of time.
● Target heart rate- average active heart rate you try to reach when exercising
● Healthy heart rate (resting: 70-120 bpm, Active: Subtract age from 220)
● How to maintain a healthy heart rate
● Benefits of raising heart rate
● Cardiovascular system
○ Heart is major muscle in this system
● What a pulse is (define)
● What heart rate means (define)

Introduction/Activating/Launch Strategies:
● Come to class dressed like a goofy workout person in workout clothing
○ Start jogging in place, say “wow this is really getting my heart rate
● Place children in small groups

Development/Teaching Approaches
Mini lesson:
1. Using a PowerPoint presentation discussing content needed on heart rate
Slide 1: Title slide
Slide 2: Key Vocab
● Cardiovascular system
● Heart rate
● Pulse
Slide 3: Healthy Heart Rate
● Resting heart rate
● Active heart rate
○ How to find active heart rate (give example)
Slide 4: Benefits of a healthy heart rate
● Less risk for cardiovascular disease
● Keeps the heart (muscle) strong
● Less risk of heart attack
Slide 5: How to Maintain a Healthy Heart Rate
● How long to exercise
● How many days a week to exercise
○ Examples of appropriate exercise
● School aged children and inactivity
○ Unless sleeping
2. Place the students into pairs.
● Ask the students to turn and talk with their partner about different
forms of exercise
● Bring the group back together
● Using the board/chart paper make a list of the different forms of
exercise the children came up with
○ They will be allowed to choose from there forms of exercise
when they complete the activity.
Guided Practice:
1. Ask the children “What do I need to do in order to find my resting heart rate?”
a. Answer: measure beats per minute
2. The teacher will demonstrate by measuring his/her own resting heart rate.
(ask for a student volunteer to help time it)
3. Ask the children “What is the first step to finding my active heart rate?”
a. Answer: exercise
4. The teacher will then exercise by choosing and activity from the chart made
with the childrens ideas
a. Ask the children to choose 2 exercises they would like you to complete
(ask them to raise their hands.. Allow 2 students to choose your
5. The teacher will then measure his/her active heart rate. (again use the
student volunteer as your timer)
Independent practice:
1. Have the children take their resting heart rate (one student times for 1 minute
while the other student takes his/her own pulse)
2. Repeat step one having the children reverse roles as pulse counter and time
3. Allow the children to choose a form of exercise (one child will exercise at a
a. Exercises should be selected from the created list of student ideas in
the front of the classroom.
4. Children will then record their active heart rate
a. One child will time while the other takes his/her own pulse
5. The children will relax and time how long it takes for their heart rate to get
back to their resting heart rate
6. Children will then compare their resting heart rate and active heart rate to that
of the average child on the data sheet
7. The teacher will then tell the students that after comparing their heart rate to
the average child on the data sheet, learning what makes our heart healthy
and how to stay healthy, we will create a plan for someone who is not so
8. The teacher will give the student the following scenario. “Bill is 10 years old.
He weighs about 85 pounds. Bill’s current resting heart rate is 110 bpm and
his active heart rate is usually 225 bpm. Bill loves watching TV so he typically
watches TV for four hours a day. Bill also loves eating ice cream, chips, and
pop tarts for dinner. He works out once a week for about 20 minutes. Bill
wants to know what his active and resting heart rate should be, how he can
get his goal heart rate and how often he should be doing the plan that you
make for him.”
9. Tell the students that you want to help Bill be as healthy as possible and keep
his heart healthy! Bill said that he is willing to take any suggestions that you
may have to help him have a healthier heart and body. Help Bill make a plan
to become healthier on the poster given to you. Please include at least three
things he can do to have a healthier heart, using what we have discussed in
class about how you can ensure that you have a healthy heart and body.
Please also include what his active and resting heart rate should be. Lastly,
please include how he can measure his heart rate to ensure he is becoming
10. The students will independently create a poster of a plan to make Bill
11. The students will hand in the poster as a grade for their performance

Closure/Summarizing Strategies:
● Ask the children to discuss things such as how they felt before exercising,
after exercising; what they saw happen to their heart rate as they exercised;
did they hear things such as heavy breathing for example.
● Exit slip about resting and active heart rate

● A student with ASD does not enjoy working with partners he has not chosen
therefore we allow the students all to select his/her own partner.
● Allow the use of calculators for students with math difficulties

● Stop watches (12)
● Data collection worksheets (23)
● Powerpoint
● Exit slip (23)
● Pencils
● Markers
● Crayons
● Poster (23)

Data Collection Worksheet

1. Using the following equation find what your average active heart rate should be

220 beats per minutes - your age = average active heart rate
2. Collect your resting heart rate in beats per minute

3. Choose a form of exercise. List it below

4. Exercise for 30 seconds. Collect your active heart rate in beats per minute.

Exit Slip
