Mrs. E. Winter’s 7th grade science class is currently learning about different body systems. Students got to see real pig lungs inflated and compared healthy lungs and smoker’s lungs. Students were surprised how light, spongy and porous the lungs were and gained a new appreciation for their own hard working organs.
They are also learning about organ systems in the human body. While learning about the cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels) students got to experience 4 different learning centers throughout the room. The different stations included a CSI blood splatter lab, heart dissection and vascular system demonstration and blood simulation tub. Students enjoyed digging in and learning first-hand about how their bodies work!
