Heart lab

September 6, 2012

So I went down to the local butcher and bought some porcine hearts. We watched a Teaching Co lecture on the heart and then we dove in.

I offered the kids plastic bags for hand protection and all accepted except Maggie who said that it was more fun sans gloves.

She may be the family surgeon. We talked about:

Peri-
Myo-
Endo-

Chambers and function
Smooth

Left/right functions

Blood vessel system to heart

  1. Gross and awesome! I’m a nurse so I appreciate a parent not afraid to show their kids a real heart, and not just a cute drawing on a piece of paper.
