Have you ever dissected the heart before? I have and it’s very cool. A couple of days ago our class dissected the heart and lungs in our classroom. We are learning about the circulatory system, and the heart is part of it.

We placed a plastic cover on the table we were going to dissect the heart on, and then the dissection started. Ms Salem, who demonstrated the dissection to the student got a heart and from lungs from a sheep. Then she blew into the trachea, and the lungs inflated a little not a lot, because there was a puncture in the trachea, so the air leaked out. Then came the interesting part Ms Salem cut through the fatty tissue and out slid the heart it was the coolest thing ever. The heart was light red and dry. Ms Salem let us stick our finger in the aorta. The aorta is the biggest vessel in the body. She then cut the heart and we saw the inside chambers, and strings that are in the heart called cordetas. They are very hard and make a guitar sound if you play them with your nails. Ms Salem sliced the lungs in half the inside of the lungs was so cool.

Other people thought that it was disgusting and it smelled bad, but I thought it was normal. Other people thought it was very cool.

I really enjoyed the dissection. It was very cool and I can’t wait till we dissect the brain. I will not become a doctor however because I don’t learning about the body.
