Physiology Presentation

Contrary to what I anticipated about teaching physiology lessons to elementary students, Peter's presentation had a positive influence on my thinking. The two activities that we performed - to explore the concept of reactions using meter sticks & Wil's demonstration of holding his breath while face down in ice - were exciting for me. I'm totally convinced that elementary students would be even more so excited. A plus is that the materials needed for the activities and the preparation for set up and procedure are easy. There is an opportunity for students to work in pairs or small groups and they could use their math skills as well as writing skills to record data and write before, during, and after the activities.
