DISSECTION - DAY 1: Evidence of teamwork and collaboration were apparent as Ms. Hanks' biology classes began dissecting frogs today in the science lab. The student group conversations were that of removing membranes, using the scalpel, probing the eye socket and cutting connective tissue. The first task was to examine the frogs and record findings such as size, color, and shape. The next task involved the removal the eyeball of the frog along with analysis, observation and recording of data.
The students were highly engaged and curious. They discussed with each other, reviewed the text they were given, and asked questions of Ms. Hanks. Students were making inferences as they collected data, they were evaluating the conditions of the specimen. They were DOING science - and they looked as if they thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thanks, Ms. Hanks for the wonderful learning activity.
