Another post from our Support team member, Kelsey Johnson!
Did you know that Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America? February is National Heart Month, and we want to help you raise awareness in your classrooms. Discovery Education has several resources that can help you plan a lesson that could save someone’s life.
Check out some of our videos to inform you and your students on the disease. The video segment “Risk Factors for Heart Disease” does a great job of explaining the factors that put you at greater risk for heart disease.
Get creative and add some exercise into your lesson plans! You can start the lesson off with a quick video segment about heart rate, and do various activities to get their heart rates up. The video segment “Heart Rate & Health” shows how students can check their own heart rate.
