Title: The Heart: The Engine of Life
Url: https://www.fi.edu/heart-engine-of-life
Publisher: Franklin Institute (Philadelphia, Pa.)
Description: This website from The Franklin Institute lets visitors explore the mysteries and inner workings of the human heart. The site contains some remarkable facts, including the observation that over the average human's lifetime the heart beats more than two and a half billion times. The site includes seven sections, including "Development," "Structure," "Vessels," "Blood," and "Monitoring." The "Development" section is a great place to start because it contains a brief discussion about how the heart grows over time and an engrossing image of a preserved heart. Educators will find much to enjoy in the "Enrichment" area. Here they will find activities for the classroom and an extensive heart image gallery. Finally, visitors should not miss the "History" area, as it contains information on milestones in cardiology and examples of hearts in popular film, books, poetry, and music.
