Ms. Duncan from Bakersfield CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.


My students need dissecting kits, a bull frog and dog fish sharks to practice dissecting in order to have a real life understanding of life systems.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students need to be exposed to many facets of life. Dissecting is a facet that opens many doors for students futures.

My students need enough dissecting supplies to fully be immersed in groups of 3-4 to enhance their biological experience.

My students excel and thrive with hands-on dissecting experiences. This project will kick start my fall semester off with a culminating activity that reinforces their understanding of the digestive system, nervous system, and skeletal system.

My Project

My students will use dissection kits to learn about the digestive system, nervous system, and skeletal system of the bullfrog and dog fish shark through dissection. They will be working in groups of 3-4 as they dissect along with documenting their findings and then do a final presentation at the end of the session.

My students are from families that primarily survive on a single income and do not have the resources to expose their children to biological activities.

My students will be gaining lab experience to enhance their high school and college experience. Opening up the world of life science with my students will promote curiosity, life long learning and paths that would not traditionally be tapped.
