The dissection tools that have been selected for this project will provide 50 students with experiences in exploring the anatomy of various species and all of its implications in the life sciences throughout the year. Initially, we will examine an owl pellet to identify, via its anatomy, what particular species was consumed by the owl. We will discuss the phenomena of the owl's diet, ingestion process, and digestion. A large impetus for this project has been student interest. So many of my students have not taken science for at least one year and are excited to get their hands dirty! Moving forward this semester, we plan on ordering more items for dissection so that students get more comfortable and confident with the tools acquired and processes enacted from this set. We will be engaged in a larger project this year in which students investigate GMOs, the selective advantage of particular traits and the future of genetic technology. Students will draw connections between the anatomy they will investigate with the materials from this project and the larger project throughout the year.
