This past week, students in Ms. Warren’s 8th grade Animal Science class were able to get an up close look at how circulatory systems work thanks to a student’s good aim during deer hunt.

Animal Science student Lance Shepherd brought in a deer heart from his successful hunt.  “We talked about the circulatory system first and how the heart works.  As a class we cut open the heart and looked at the different chambers and students were able to visualize what we had talked about,” explained Ms. Warren.

Thank you, Ms. Warren, for creating an authentic learning experience for your Animal Science students.  And Lance, enjoy all that deer meat.
