Exercise and your Heart

In fourth class we have been busy testing our heart rates. Before exercise we tested children’s heart rates using the heart rate monitor. After the exercise we tested them again to see if there was any change in their heart rates. The heart rate monitor told us how many times their heart beat per minute (bpm). Here are some of the results we collected.

Results

Kalya                Before exercise 96bpm

                          After exercise 120bpm

Oliver                Before exercise 90bpm

                           After exercise 130bpm

Declan              Before exercise 78bpm

                          After exercise 135bpm

Oscar               Before exercise 150bpm

                          After exercise 200bpm

 Conclusion

We found out that your heart rate changes after exercise. It beats faster. Oscar had a high heart rate before exercise and we know this was because he was nervous and excited about using the heart rate monitor. He was also doing a lot of talking at the beginning!!

For the next few weeks we are hoping to use the heart rate monitor before and after P.E every week.
