Whoa, theres a lot of stuff in this module!
I don't know if my HEART can take it.
Complete the following activites and labs. Fill out the online study guides and save to your files. An arrow indicates a study guide to be filled out. A sign shows those activites that will give you a basic understanding of the concepts. Do these first if you are having difficulty. Document your work in your science website portfolio. Take all assessments.

Blood Pressure Clinic
Hey look! It's a free blood pressure clinic.
Go see your teacher to get your Blood Pressure Checked!!
I am done with Module V when ...
I can identify the composition of blood ... Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells, Platelets, etc.
I can interpret results from Hematocrit, Blood Typing, and other Blood tests as found in "Get Body Smart".
I can identify the chambers, major blood vessels, and valves in and around the heart.
I can demonstrate the flow of blood through the heart.
I can interpret basic Electrocardiograms (ECG) to distinguish normal from abnormal heart rhythms.
I have visited every activity in this Module and evaluated it for its usefulness to me.
I have placed the most important things on my science website portfolio including study guides, images, and summaries.
I have completed the Summative Assessment.

What does my Blood Pressure Mean use this link after you have had your blood pressure taken to better understand what your reading means.
Note: this lab is divided into two parts. In Part 1 you will be making a slide of synthetic blood to view under the microscope. In Part two you will be typing blood and determining which donor could safely give blood to our patient. You MUST do the two activities above before doing this lab.
