Grade 12 created a fantastic Body Circus that included 4 stations:
S1: Real Animal Lung that students could manipulate to see how gas expands the lungs. Next they were able to make a model of lungs by using a bottle, balloon and some imagination.
S2: Microscopes: G12 students took a sample of G4 student’s cheek cells and allowed them to examine them under a microscope.
S3: Body Models and Real Animal Bones. In order to learn about human organs, students were allowed to take apart body models and had competitions to see which one could put the organs back in the proper places the quickest. Also, students were give the femur bone of a cow, goat and sheep and compared the similarities and differences with our human skeleton model.
S4: Students played a digestion game.
