Students in the Roland-Story veterinary science class recently completed an activity in which they learned new skills sets in the area of the animal’s circulatory system.

The activity required the students to go around the classroom and to take measurements of the 2-week-old chick’s heart rate, respiratory rate and pulse rate. These were infused within the lesson of learning how to use various pieces of veterinary equipment such as a stethoscope.

“The activity allowed the students the opportunity to put into practice items within our current unit that we have been studying in regards to the circulatory system of animals,” said Brad Taylor, R-S agriculture instructor.
