Pig Heart Dissection with Dr. Addison

Kate's mom came to school and guided the class through a pig heart dissection. Students were able to see the big the vena cava and aorta are, how thick the walls of the left ventricle are, to examine the valves between the heart chambers, and more. Dr. Addison also brought in a variety of stethoscopes and blood pressure monitors for the students to examine and experiment with. Thanks, Dr. Addison! This is definitely a highlight of our unit for the students!
