The past few weeks the seventh and eighth grade students have been learning the following systems of the human body: skeletal, muscular, lymphatic, cardiac, and circulatory. Elevating their learning outside of the textbook, they explored these systems in a variety of labs. One showed a fun difference between male versus female’s center of gravity. (Ask one of the students to explain it to you, and try it out for yourself!) Other recent labs had the students exploring hands-on by dissecting: chicken wings (finding and understanding ligaments, tendons, skeletal, muscular, marrow, etc), a cow tail (vertebrae, meniscus, more ligaments and tendons), and they also viewed and explored cow and pig hearts (the four chambers: aortas, ventricles, arteries, veins, capillaries, and the flow of the closed circulatory system.) We have such an amazing God, who created such complex creatures and it is a marvel to see it firsthand! We would like to extend a HUGE thanks to those who donated items to make this happen!
