Dr Anjanette teaches el aparato respiratorio
Samuel's 2nd grade class are currently learning about the respiratory system. They have been learning in a really exciting and interactive way, this would possibly not be allowed in the UK but Samuel was certainly very excited to touch a cow's heart and lungs to gain a better understanding of the structures.
Anjanette was invited to talk to the year group about the subject. It was great fun we taught the children about the equipment that we use to measure peak flow rate, oxygen saturation and respiratory rate. Then we all had a go at measuring and comparing these statistics as well as showing them some teaching X Rays.
It was a real treat to go and meet Samuel's class mates and to spend some time with them . When we got near the end of my session it was amazing how they suddenly thought up many enthusiastic interesting questions to delay having to go back to their "normal classes" What clever children!
