Katie Welaka, Amy Slatier, and Matthew Gang (L-R), second grade students at Goodwin Primary School, get a lesson on the construction of a heart from Dr. Mark Slatier. Not pictured: Andrew Webb. Close examination of an animal heart was the interesting conclusion of a class unit on the heart.
The Goodwin Primary School second grade students in Sandra Shelton's gifted and talented class received an up clote and personal explanation about how the heart worics.
“The project began with Valentine's Day and concluded with the examination of an animal heart," Shelton said.
The main focus was to study blood flow. Students studied the circulatory system, blood flow through the heart, learned lo identify the parts of the heart, and the difference between veins and arteries, according to Shelton.
“We also talked about the influence that diet and exercise have upon the heart,” she said.
“Students learned how to take their pulse, and measured their pulse rate after exercise and when at rest to understand the effect of exercise on the heart,” Shelton said.
For the actual examination of the heart, the class called on an expert --Dr. Mark Staller, s New Braunfels pediatrician and father of Amy, one of the students in Shelton's class.
“Why do we wear gloves?,” he ■titfd the students
“Because you could catch something from the blood,” several students answered Slatier.
“Part of the learning experience was to perform the examination under ‘hospital’ conditions. So students wore hospital clothing, rubber gloves, and the examination was performed under ’sterile' conditions,” Shelton said.
Students learned that the heart is a very strong muscle. “To demonstrate the strength and stamina of the heart, students squeezed a rubber ball in their hand. It wasn't easy,” she said.
Evan Shimtk (teated), fourth grade student, was crowned Bulverde Elementary School's chest champion after spirited competition. Jason Conetanzo won second place. Sherry Metzger, BES gifted and talented teacher, taught each fourth grade clast how to play cheat. Clast champions challenged each other for the school championship. Cheat is a teaching tool used in many of the nation’s largest public school districts. Chese strengthens students’ reasoning, logic and problem-solving abilities, while improving memory and concentration, according to Metzger.
