In anatomy, the kids are studying the cardiovascular system. To help them remember the four chambers of the heart and the main veins and arteries coming out of the heart, we decided to do a project that was suggested in the textbook we use.
We used graham crackers for the four chambers of the heart. Then I mixed up some frosting to help illustrate the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Marshmallows were used for the veins and arteries coming out of the heart.
Both of our kids had a lot of fun with the projected and it really helped them to remember facts about the heart that they might not have otherwise. Plus, it tasted pretty good, too!
We love homeschooling!
