All About Dissections, is week-long class and a children’s favorite! In a group setting, over password protected Zoom platform, we spend one hour a day dissecting four different specimens. We then conclude the week by using all the evidence collected through dissections and make a “big” scientific claim that helps us answer our focus question.
In this class, your child will learn about the classification of living things, the difference between invertebrate and vertebrate organisms, and how animals’ external and internal structures help them meet some fundamental needs.
Day One: Classification of living things and dissection of an annelid.
Day Two: Dissection of a crustacean
Day Three: Dissection of an insect
Day Four: Dissection of an amphibian
Day Five: Wrap-up with “big” scientific claims
When: September 14-18, 2020
Time: 4:00-5:00pm US-EDT
