Fifth Graders Learn About the Role of the Heart Within the Circulatory System

Within the PYP Transdisciplinary Theme of Who We Are, with the Central Idea being: Effective interactions between human body systems contribute to health and survival, fifth graders learned about the circulatory system. Last week their lesson focus was on the role of the heart. They started by brainstorming what they already knew about the heart. Then they wrote down questions that they wanted to inquire about. (See list). From there, they worked in groups researching and sharing their learning with their peers. It was a collaborative effort and the students walked away from the activity with a great deal of knowledge about the role the heart plays within the circulatory system. Bravo fifth graders!
