In the 2/3 yellow class, students were inquiring into organs and what they really look like. After talking about medical illustration, the students observed dissections of a cow lung and the hearts of both a pig and cow. On their clipboards the learners recorded the sights, smells and details from the dissections which were led by upper school science students.
