A typical Blood Slide on High Power

What are we seeing in this slide?
Could this represent a "normal" blood sample?

Cell Membrane Experiment! 12/16

Here we are setting up the experiment.

This is what the set-up looked like when we were done following the instructions.

What did we learn by doing this experiment?

Enigineering Heart Valves in class!

The students did a GREAT job today engineering heart valve in science class!

Here are a few images of the action!

We gotta make this, fit into this, using that!

Failure is NOT an option!

The heart is a STRONG muscle!

HI All,
We did our best to use pumps to simulate how strong our heart is by pumping iquid and the same rate as our heart!
Kids measured tha amount of fluid they could pump in one minute and compared the data to what their heart can do!
That was tough! The heart is a strong muscle!

NSTA visit!

It was great visiting with representatives form the National Science Teacher's Association. They visited our classroom and spoke with a few representatives from our KIVA and Scratch Programming clubs!
Great Job kids!
Mr. F :-)

Your heart is a "DOUBLE PUMP"

Why is the heart a Double pump? Blood carries oxygen and many other substances around your body. Oxygen from your blood reacts with sugar in your cells to make energy. The waste product of this process, carbon dioxide, is carried away from your cells in your blood. Your heart is a single organ, but it acts as a double pump. The first pump carries oxygen-poor blood to your lungs, where it unloads carbon dioxide and picks up oxygen. It then delivers oxygen-rich blood back to your heart. (Right side of your heart) The second pump delivers oxygen-rich blood to every part of your body. (Left side of your heart) Blood needing more oxygen is sent back to the heart to begin the cycle again. In one day your heart transports all your blood around your body about 1000 times. Amazing right? Mr. F :-)
