This science unit provides information and activities about the importance of good nutrition. The unit includes directions, topics for class discussion, and a mini book titled “I Eat Healthy Foods." 

Grades 2-5

Two simple diagrams of the circulatory system and heart; also includes labels.

Grades 4-6
You've Got the Beat
A fun ten-minute science activity in which students learn how to check their heart rate while at rest and after running in place.
