Blood and Guts – Lungs Dissection


We just love to get down and dirty with our anatomy class!  We’re finishing up our study on the Respiratory System, and today we got the awesome chance to dissect a couple of cow lungs.

We had two sets, so I divided the class in half to allow the kids more hands-on teamwork.  They really liked this dissections because it was so big, BUT it didn’t have the awful smells of the GI Tract (I’m STILL gagging) and the kidneys.

Here are some pictures of our fun experience:

Here’s an awesome video of us blowing air in a lung to inflate it!
