Measure Your Pulse with a Straw!
Want to let your kid see her heart in action? A simple device constructed out of a drinking straw and clay makes learning about the pulse visual and hands-on! The straw twitches up and down with each heart contraction, giving kids a firsthand look at how the heart works. She'll even practice making a hypothesis, or guess, and then observe the difference between resting and recovery pulse rates.
