Pump Up: The Heart | 9th–12th Grade
Challenge your students to get to the heart of the matter during this guided dissection of the body’s hardest-working muscle! By dissecting a sheep’s heart, students will learn about the structure and function of a mammal heart as well as how oxygen, nutrients, and hormones are transported throughout the body. Students will work in pairs as assigned by the Museum Educator.
