    We took red and blue tape and taped out a HUGE heart on our gym floor. We included the major arteries and veins so the kids could see where the blood came from and where it went. Then we all lined up and became the blood pumping through the heart. Another teacher even got creative and brought in a drum so someone could "thump-thump" as we trotted around the heart. Then we got REAL creative and stationed teachers at every place in the heart where there would be a valve. The teachers "opened" and "closed" to let kids through a few at a time as the heart beat. It was lots of fun. As a follow-up we listened to our own hearts with a stethescope.
