Year 12 biologists find a novel way to revise the heart by fashioning Easter eggs and sweets to represent the major components.
On Tuesday, we finished our Biology topic on animal transport which includes lots of details about internal structures and the control of the heart beat. We decided that a good way of remembering all the keywords and the chronology of the events in one heart beat would be to make an edible heart! We used Easter eggs and liquorice sticks to form the chambers and the blood vessels entering and leaving the heart.
This is something you could try at home with any spare eggs you might receive at Easter!
