HHS HOSA students learn at the Memphis Zoo’s Classroom


HHS Health Science teachers Julie Taylor and Kristin Carlton took their HOSA students to the Memphis Zoo on Friday, October 26, for an outstanding learning experience. The class was held at the Memphis Zoo Education classroom.

According to Mrs. Taylor, the class was on rat anatomy. The focus was on mammalian organ systems within the abdominal and thoracic body cavities. By participating in this dissection class, students were able to identify structures and discuss similarities and differences between human anatomy and the specimen. This class met many of the state science standards.

“It was a very positive experience, and one we will make an annual fall experience,” Mrs. Taylor said.
