A Weyauwega-Fremont High School science class recently worked on a science lesson with Fremont Elementary students.
On Dec. 16, students from Lynn Ponto’s high school Anatomy and Physiology Class joined Kris Sroka’s fifth-grade class to dissect pig hearts.
Students in both of the classes studied the parts of the heart and the functions using diagrams, videos, songs and models.
They learned about the flow of blood and how the heart functions within the body.
High school students were also available to take blood pressure and quiz the fifth graders using a model heart.
The high school students were eager to teach students about the heart as they work toward their own potential medical careers.
Thirteen of the 17 students in the high school class are interested in some type of medical career.
Niemuth’s Steak & Chop Shop, of Waupaca, donated the pig hearts.
