My students need a better understanding of animal anatomy to better prepare them for careers in the animal care field.
No bones about it, anatomy is an important part of understanding animals. My students have a difficult time understanding the anatomy of animals when they are not able to physically see or touch what they are learning.
The program that I teach is a prep program that designed to get students ready for a career in the animal care industry.
It has strong emphasis on the students furthering their education into the field of Veterinary Science. We are a technical school located in northern NY. My class is composed of over 60 students all from diverse populations. The students range from military children to farm kids. I have learners of varying levels, some with special needs and others who take advanced placement courses. They are a motivated group of individuals who have a passion for animals and a desire to learn all they can about their future careers. The students receive a hands on education by performing labs, working with animals, and interning with local animal industry professionals.
These supplies will help my students acquire a better understanding of canine anatomy as well as anatomical differences between species. The anatomical charts will help my students view the internal workings of a canine so that they will no how the body correctly functions. I teach that if you know what normal looks/acts like, then you will be able to identify when a problem has occurred. Many of my students are visual/hands on learners and we are unable to perform dissections on every body system. These manuals will save an animals life as well as help the student see internal anatomy of a dog. The cow skull will help show the difference between herbivore and carnivore teeth. It will also allow me the chance to teach the students how to examine teeth and halter a cow.
This project will impact my students by exposing them to new means in which to learn about anatomy.
They will be able to manipulate the cow skull and develop studying strategies through the use of the canine anatomy manuals. After the anatomy unit the students will be able to identify and locate the parts of the canine as well as halter a cow safely and affectively.Read More
