The Heart of the Matter

Perelman Jewish Day School
As a part of our interdisciplinary body unit, fifth graders engaged in a very special science rotation. The first stop was Dr. & Dr. Ufberg. Current parent, David Ufberg, and former parent, Jacob Ufberg, gave a hands-on demonstration about how the muscles of the heart work. Students had the opportunity to feel the muscles and valves of an actual cow's heart. Next in line was a course in first aid. As our growing students prepare for the greater independence of middle school, first aid basics are essential to help them begin taking care of themselves. Dr. Ezekiel Taylor also taught the fifth graders how to assess a scene in an emergency, make sure their peers are safe, and think through the next logical steps to get help. As always, we are thankful for our Perelman family that enhances the educational experience for our students by bringing real-life experiences into the classroom.
