Explain why our circulatory system (including the arteries and blood) is essential for our survival
Describe the cause and effect of obstructed blood flow through plaque buildup in the arteries
Assess flow rates of liquids using a blood flow model
Why is it important to eat healthy and exercise? In this hands-on lesson plan, students will build a simple model to explore the effects of plaque buildup in arteries. The model allows them to demonstrate what happens to blood flow when heart disease narrows a person's arteries.
