One child was thrilled the other not at all excited about seeing the heart, liver gal bladder, lungs, stomach, intestine, fat bodies and more of the frog. I enjoyed the process more than my kids! Most likely because I was not paying attention when I took Biology and missed out on all the fun.
Hands on school is the best. The gals did lots of diagrams and studying prior to the dissection. Each was able to identify all of the parts that we could locate. ( we could not find the pancress)
So these ( the photos) loaded backwards.... this was at the end. We got a great lesson on the spinal cord and all the veins.
Cutting him open was hard. This specimen was very tough.
The frog has vomerine teeth on the roof of their mouth. They are sharp and easy to feel.
Stay tuned for future dissections. We have 3 more planned.
We have had our first snow and several light snowfalls since. With three of us taking photos sometimes the photos do not get uploaded to the computer in a timely fashion. Here is the first snow fall of the year. What are the kids doing? Well they are attempting to catch the snowflakes on their tongues! I promise you there were snowflakes falling!
