Mrs. Paula Dean conducts virtual pig heart dissection with Anatomy class

Houston Academy moved to a Distance Learning Model on March 17, 2020. Throughout this time, HA teachers have continued to be creative in their teachings and communicate frequently with students through distance learning. This has been consistent throughout all levels of the school, grades 3P through 12. Feel free to view our virtual teaching highlights during the stay-at-home order.

Mrs. Paula Dean conducted a pig heart dissection with her anatomy class recently. Students were finishing the cardiovascular unit in anatomy and part of the unit included this dissection. Mrs. Dean didn’t want the students to miss out on this, and she knew it would be a great review before the unit test. She videoed the dissection of the heart and uploaded it to the dissection to Google Classroom along with questions concerning the dissection. Students watched the video and completed the lab questions. It wasn’t a perfect case scenario, but she believed it was better than not having the dissection at all.
