North Shore students learn heart smarts

Email News Alerts

Last Thursday, fifth and sixth graders at North Shore Community School in Duluth Township dissected deer hearts as part of a unit on cardiovascular health. The dissection is an annual tradition and the students typically react well, according to their teacher Robbie Tietge. The deer hearts, which were donated by local hunters, serve as models for the students to learn about their own hearts, including how they function and what keeps a heart healthy.
