GFJ students are heart healthy

GFJ students in P.E. classes have been discovering how a heart functions as part of February’s Heart-Healthy month. 

All activities and games were designed to increase student awareness of heart-healthy choices, what the heart and lungs do, as well as teach the basic structure and anatomy of the cardiovascular system.

To end the unit, students participated in a 3D heart obstacle course where they traveled as tiny blood cells through the four chambers of the heart, controlled blood flow in the aorta, and traveled along the pulmonary artery. They were also given the opportunity to observe a cow’s heart being dissected so that they could see the anatomy of a heart and make connections to the curriculum they learned in the heart-healthy unit.
