Reflection: Real World Applications Heart Attack - Section 2: Explain


Many of my students have family members who have been impacted by heart disease and/or heart attack. While their lives have been impacted, the students do not have a solid understanding of what heart disease is and how it can be prevented.  

Students also have difficulty understanding that the diet and exercise choices they make today will impact them in the future. The use of this online interactive helps them see the real world application of what we are learning in class and enables them to make more informed decisions about their diet and exercise choices.
