My posts this week have centered around this super cool science activity that students completed today. These pics were snapped as they were finishing everything off. I can say, without a doubt, that student understanding of how the heart functions is so much better now that they have done this project. I could really tell that one area that they really struggled with was the idea that the pulmonary artery carries oxygen deprived blood and that the pulmonary vein carries the oxygen rich blood. It seemed that they kept coming back to that idea over and over again, trying to wrap their brains around it. (FYI, arteries go away from the heart didn't seem to satisfy their understanding.)
