Comparing Pig vs. Human Anatomy

Help me give my students the opportunity to reinforce the concepts they have learned about the organ systems of the human body.

My Students

My students are extremely inquisitive and would benefit from hands-on experiments that reinforce the concepts taught in class. Our district does not supply a science budget, therefore any help would benefit my students' desire to learn.

Reinforcement through hands-on labs is one of the excellent ways I use to get my students excited about science.

My students' excitement is contagious when they get to successfully complete lab assignments. This is the best way to get students involved in STEM. Book work helps; but labs last a lifetime.

My Project

What an awesome opportunity for my students to be able to visually see and experience the similarities between a pig's anatomy and their own!

We have studied all the organ systems of the human body, and now I would love to reinforce these concepts through the hands on lab dissection of a fetal pig.

My students would not forget this wonderful experience, which will give them a lifetime of knowledge that they will not soon forget. I am asking for twelve pigs and dissecting resources. I appreciate so much the opportunity to provide this gift to my students. They too would be so appreciative of this learning experience.
