    Students learn through: racing around the cardiac system, competing in fitness challenges as their favourite superstars, experiencing arousal/ stress first hand and becoming a sponsor for a lesson!

What do teachers say about this resource? (7579)

This resource is of great educational value. The lessons are fully explained step by step and aid students to visually see often complex concepts and ideas. These also help to reach disaffected students who are more practical learners and struggle with theoretical concepts.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7711)

This resource enhances learning hugely. It brings the issues and debates to life and also helps to encourage students who otherwise find theory difficult. I particularly like the clear lesson plans that are included. These give sufficient detail to lead a lesson as well as using the practical aspects to illustrate the key concepts.
