    We have learned:


    ·        That a heart beat represents the pumping action of the heart.


    ·        The heart and lungs work as a team to supply the body with fresh oxygen.


    ·        The heart is a muscle located in the chest and is about the size of your fist.


    ·        You can feel your pulse on your neck or wrist.


    ·        The risk factors for heart disease are: inactivity, overweight, and smoking.


    ·        A risk means you are more likely to have heart disease.


    ·         If you play everyday for 60 minutes and eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits and veggies you reduce you risk of heart disease.


    ·        The arteries carry blood and oxygen away from the heart to the muscles.


    ·        You should only play computer games and watch TV for up to 2 hours a day.


    ·        In an emergency call 911.
