Beats Per Minute

What happens your heart when you do exercise? Let's find out. 

  

Record your heart rate, before and after exercise, in a table like the one below.  

An adult’s resting heart rate should be between 60 and 100bpm and a child’s should be between 70 and 110bpm and when they do exercise it should increase a lot. 

Are your family’s heart rates very different?
