My students need the Perch Dissection BioKit and Carolina Forensic Dissection Kit.
It is hard enough these days to engage students in science. Most science curriculum is done through reading the text books, but is that the best way to learn science? No! Students learn through hands-on experiences!
Our school was once in one of the highest foreclosure areas in California.
My core group of students is a diverse mixture of 32 seventh and eighth graders from all abilities and backgrounds. All of my students are an energetic bunch of kids! Some of these kids are very eager to learn, but as with most students many need the extra push to learn about science, and to learn to love science.
Students learn science best through hands-on experiences. Many students today will never be able to experience a true dissection. By allowing students to experience this activity at an early age you are insuring that my students will learn to love science!
We will begin with the basic dissection of the Perch. This activity will teach the students the fundamentals of how to do a dissection properly. We will then follow up with a forensic "Who Dunnit" lab experiment. The students will have to dissect the fetal pig in order to solve the crime!
My students will be able to get down and dirty while learning how to properly dissect and respect an animal that gave its life for science.
Without your support my students won't be able to explore their intuitive side.
Your help will ensure that my students continue their love of science. And those who do not enjoy science will see new reasons to start loving it!
