Four deer hearts and lungs were donated to the CIS Anatomy and Physiology class by the Pattison family from their family hunting trip. Mrs. Cripe encouraged students to arrive 15 minutes early to class and examine and dissect the organs. Once getting past the “gross factor,” the students Â happily held and cut open the heart and lungs. Early in the year, they dissected rats during class, but the dear hearts and lungs were much larger so students were able to take a better look at the surrounding veins and arteries. A symphony of “This is so cool!” and “I love this!” echoed throughout the room.
