Third-year Science - Heart Dissections

Mindy's and Claud's third-year science group completed their two-week study of the heart. Parents Molly Lagrou and Becky Wyatt did a presentation of the heart, lungs, trachea, and esophagus and then helped to facilitate individual pig-heart dissections. After some initial squeamishness, the students were all actively engaged in the work. Many students don't have this opportunity until they are in high school, if ever.  This group also completed a study of the eye and dissected sheep eyes - all while in the third grade!
