Help Scientists Dissect!

My students need dissection supplies such as 30 frogs, and two fetal pig packs pus a 240 piece dissection kits! Students have been asking to dissect since the beginning of the year and I would love to give them such an opportunity! Thanks!

My Students

Do you remember the worksheets or lectures you had in school? How about the activities you did? Chances are, the hands-on stuff you did in school is what really helped you learn. My students really want to dissect this year, and I would love to provide them with this hands-on opportunity!

My students are 7th graders in an urban school in Illinois.

The are so eager to learn, especially science! I love providing them with hands-on activities, but the cost can be overwhelming. My students have been bringing up dissection since the first day of school. I told them if they worked hard for me, I would see what I could do. Please help me reward my young scientists!

My Project

My students need dissection supplies such as 30 frogs, and two fetal pig packs pus a 240 piece dissection kits! These resources will allow my students to dissect two different organisms. One will be randomly drawn and then everyone will dissect a frog. I will have the students work in pairs so if students don't want to be quite as hands-on as their classmates they can do more observing. Although students will only dissect two organisms, they will be able to see a total of six different organisms. I'm so excited to watch my kids open a frog and see how large the liver is, or what a female's eggs look like! They are going to LOVE it!

My students show a natural interest in science.

I need to do everything in my power to foster this and help form young scientists. These donations will help keep a motivated group of students moving forward in their education!
