Dissecting in Kinder...Oh My!

My students need preserved owl pellets and frogs, dissection tools, aprons, and gloves to help them become excited about Science and to give them a unique opportunity to learn in an exciting and fun way.

My Students

I teach at a small, rural, Title I school where 100% of the students receive free lunch. We are very isolated from the rest of our county, but that doesn't keep my students from receiving a top notch education.

My students are kind, considerate, and very respectful in all aspects.

They love to learn by creating, constructing, and using their critical thinking skills. They are being taught to be problem solvers and skill users. They love to use their critical thinking skills to solve problems and design different ways to solve them, because we all know there is usually more than one way to do so.

My Project

Last year I had a crazy idea to teach my Kindergarten class about internal body structures using frogs. I was amazed at how well they retained the information we discussed. My students were engaged and excited for the culminating activity of dissecting a frog! I would love to recreate this project. With parental involvement and the help of a few older students we were able to create a unique learning experience.

My hope for this project is to expand their knowledge and to continue to grow their enthusiasm concerning biological sciences.

We will begin this project by examining food chains and learning about their purpose in the environment. The owl pellets will allow my students to discover what an owl might eat on a daily basis. The students can discover and sort their findings using a bar or pictograph this will allow them to have a visual representation available for further discussion.

We will then discuss the organ systems found in a human body. Frogs are perfect for allowing young students visualize what the human body looks like inside. We watch videos that show us exactly what to do and learn the name of the organs we are seeing. This build the excitement for the big day.

Many people think dissecting can not be done with young minds, but I have proven that it can be. The students learn listening, math, science, cooperation, conversation, as well as many other important skills necessary in everyday life.
