5th Grade Body Study

5th graders with science teacher Cindy Cartwright spent the last weeks of school studying human anatomy and creating some splendid Body Books that contain their drawings and outlines of each body system. They even got a visit from Dr. Brett Kurpiel, a Department of Pathology resident at UVA Hospital, who came to talk about the brain and other organs, and brought some very cool and carefully preserved organ samples, mostly of brain cross sections, that were especially fascinating and provided a sense of organ size and function. Check out some examples of their amazing Body Books work here.
