IB Biology - Heart Dissection

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Today IB Grade 12 Biology  students have performed a mammal heart dissection.  The purpose of this activity is to be able to identify the different external and internal structures of the heart and to distinguish, for example, between arteries and veins.

Since the heart came with part of the respiratory system, they were able to observe and analyze the structure of the lungs, bronchi and bronchiole.

The students have enjoyed  this activity and were able to apply what they learned in their  theory class about arteries and veins.
