Timber Point Students Learn About Healthy Hearts

Students at Timber Point recently celebrated Heart Month by learning all about the heart and circulatory system as well as the importance of exercise for personal heart fitness.

During physical education classes with Patricia Bush and Diane Wahrenburg, the students participated in healthy heart stations that got their hearts pumping. One station even imitated the body’s actual circulatory system in delivering oxygen to the muscles and bringing carbon dioxide back to the heart and lungs. Students also learned about the anatomy and function of the heart, lungs and circulatory system through viewing posters as visual aids and watching videos on the school’s Smart Board. 

“Many students found these body systems to be fascinating and participated in the healthy heart stations with enthusiasm,” said Wahrenburg. “Healthy hearts are happy hearts.”
