Mrs Klassen Grade 7 and 8s Getting to the Heart of the Matter!

December 10, 2018

Grade 7 & 8 Science students at Darwin School first learned about the human heart by studying power point slides, listening to class lectures, and watching videos. Studying a list of anatomical features and seeing pictures of the heart on paper is a very different experience than actually getting your hands "dirty" by dissecting a real heart where you can see and feel the heart's structures. Using a pig heart, grade 7 & 8 students observed the major chambers, valves, and vessels of the heart and described the circulation of blood through the heart to the lungs and back and out to the rest of the body. The pig heart was used because it is very similar to the human heart in structure, size & function.  Thanks to Alex & David from Wise- Kidnetic Energy for facilitating the Open Heart Surgery labs at Darwin School!
