The 2nd quarter “Grossology” elective class with Ms. Sandvig has been dissecting rats! First, students learned the internal organs by labeling colored diagrams. Next, they skin the rats (see pictures). Finally, they will look at, identify and remove the internal organs. It is the highlight of the class! Previously in this class they learned how to dissect owl pellets, sheep hearts, and sheep eyes before they could start their rat dissections. It may be a bit smelly and gross but the students are loving this hands-on learning opportunity!
