Today was our last science class and we learned some comparative anatomy. Since it’s a bit unethical to dissect humans in order to study structure and exact location of our organs, we need to study animals with comparable organ systems. Therefore, the young scientists rolled up their sleeves and dissected frogs. We worked in groups through a worksheet, which guided us through our dissection. We located organs belonging part of the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems.
It was a fun and somewhat challenging lessons. This was the first dissection most (if not all) students did and they did so very bravely!
It’s been a wonderful year and I’m super honored to have been your science instructor for the year. Henderson 5th graders – you have been amazing. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
And remember, never stop asking questions. Learn something new every day. And most importantly, stay wonderful and continue to become the beautiful individuals that you are!
