        SciGirls | Heart to Heart

        The heart is the hardest working muscle in the human body, pumping out oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood with every beat. But no matter how hard this muscle works each second, it still needs exercise to stay strong. Hearts that get regular exercise can pump more blood with less strain. In this activity, students will compare ways to measure heart rate (and build their own stethoscopes!) to learn how exercise affects heart rate.
