High School Health Class

Monday and Tuesday students were able to interact with pig lungs in health class to better understand the dangers associated with smoking.  Students were able to compare/contrast a healthy lung to that of a “smoker’s” lung.  Within the blackened lung students were able to see and feel a cancerous tumor (one of many side effects from tobacco use).
