Fourth graders get a tour of the heart

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Fourth grade students at Edison Elementary in Waterloo are taking a different approach in learning the heart.

Students are learning about the circulatory system by walking through this model of the heart.

The students stand in as the blood being pumped through the arteries.

Teacher Stephanie McCombs created the model to help them better understand the heart's duties.

"The heart is so three dimensional that it is hard to just look at it on paper and really understand what it's like. As the kids move through one of the strategies the kids learn through is movement," said McCombs.

McCombs monitors the student's progress by having them journal about their experience.
