Grade Level: 3-5
Draw a general diagram of the heart and its four chambers on tagboard. Label each of the four quadrants. Attach the posters to the wall. Discuss the flow of blood into and out of the heart. Create small teams of players and have them each stand in a single file line behind one of the posters. Give each team a ball. On “Go!” players from each team take turns trying to hit the four quadrants of the heart in the same order that blood would flow. Give teams one point for each successful series of hits. Offer students a chance to earn shots at a basket as a reward for each point that they earn.
Throws overhand to a partner or at a target with accuracy at a reasonable distance. (S1.E14.4b)
