Year 8 Science Heart Dissection

The Year 8 students have been learning about the Respiration System and Circulatory System in Science this term. In Week 8 all students got to learn more deeply about the structures of these Systems and how they work together, by observing a lamb’s hearts and lungs. Following a demonstration, students had the opportunity to dissect a lamb’s heart. This experiment enabled students to gain an even deeper understanding of the hearts structures and functions. Once students got past the initial fears and squeamishness, they were very interested in the dissection and left the lesson with much excitement.
