Students will observe the dissection of a frog and answer questions during the observation.
- dissection pan and tools
- student sheet (see below)
- Open lesson with this statement: "In this activity you will watch as your teacher dissects a frog. You may think this is disgusting and icky, but it can also be a great learning experience for you. As you watch the dissections, answer the questions below. The questions may not be answered in order, so go back and forth as needed."
- Make sure that all students can see and have the opportunity to ask questions.
- The flex-cam can be use to project the view on to a TV or screen and may be easier for squeamish students to watch.
