Exploring the Virtual Heart can make any student think like a scientist! Ask students as a group to brainstorm questions about the functions of the heart. Using the Inspiration Lite app (free) is an excellent way to map out prior knowledge and create questions based on their curiosity. Then introduce the Virtual Heart app (free) as their questions will make these images more meaningful. Continuing to use an inquiry model, ask students to explore any of these activities from the Science Museum of Minnesota to learn more through experimentation.
