Saint Leo the Great Catholic School eighth Graders sat with their queasy stomachs, their curiosity, and their care to dissect sheep hearts. The students very methodically opened up the hearts to examine the structures. They wrote down their observations and conclusions while comparing it to what they know about the human heart.
Mrs. Jordan and Ms. Scofield, the two Junior High Science teachers, prepared the students with information about the heart. The students did their own research and work, prepped for their dissection lab, and “oohed,” “aahed,” and “yucked” their way through the lab. We are grateful to our parent volunteers who helped supervise the budding scientists!
