Description

Class Experience

Lesson1&2 Using diagrams, videos, and the teacher's guidance, the student will successfully learn about the external anatomy of the frog. They will also learn what are the parts of the frog's mouth.
Lesson 3 Students will learn that within the eye, the frog has aqueous humor that holds the lens in place. Several eyelids must be penetrated in order to physically remove it. 
Students will learn the cranium in a preserves frog is tough and durable for the protection of the brain. 
Students will learn how to easily remove the skin of the frog. 
Students will learn the names of major muscle parts using printable diagrams.
Lesson 3 and 4 Students will learn to extract each body part from the inside of a frog's body cavity after using a coloring page to locate these organs to familiarize themselves. 
Lesson 5 will be an assessment through a Google Form quiz, This will help them they review information they learned through the dissection.
I have been dissecting preserved frogs for over thirty-five years. As a secondary Biology instructor, this never gets old. I love teaching the anatomy of all sorts of animals. I've taught children from ages 7 to 18 how to dissect and eliminate the fear of exploring what the inside of animals look like.
Lesson 1 Students are prompted to write the instructor in an asynchronous format during the course.
If students followed along with the video lesson, a pic is optional to send to the instructor. They will also engage in the "I spy" game to interact with their peers
Lesson 2 Students will need to cut out labels and have them ready for the dissection if they choose to do it. Otherwise, students will study them if they are only observing them prepare for the online quiz. They will also engage in the "I spy" game to interact with their peers
Lesson 3 Students will answer the teacher's questions if she asks anything through the classroom format. 
Lesson 4 Students will share their observations with their peers in a  "High Five Question" game to interact with their peers.
Lesson 5 Assessment and Certification
***Please note that the videos are set to private because these are classes people pay a fee for; they are not free to the public. Let me know your email to directly send the links to you a day or two prior to your dissections so there is no delay. Optional: If you'd like your child to follow along, you would need a preserved frog. I suggest getting one from homesciencetools.com https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/frog-dissection-kit/ Design your own dissection kit: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hyo2dqQX62blqGHlcZp2kxW6RHdtb7BIKIh9m88HyCM/edit?usp=sharing
There will be an online quiz towards the end of the class that pertains to the dissection of the class to check the student's understanding of the diagrams and videos presented in the course. 

Optional: Take a pic of them dissecting a frog. This pic will remain private unless you as the parent state otherwise. 

Upon completion of the three frog dissection classes (Parts 1 Frog External Anatomy and Mouth, 2 Frog eye, brain and muscles, 3 Frog Internal Anatomy), the student will receive a digital certificate that they may print for their own records. Plus, receive a plastic frog dissection apron by snail mail if they so desire. I would love for you to send me a picture of you wearing it once you receive yours in the mail.

Lesson 5 Students will have an online Google form quiz of the Frog Internal Anatomy. This quiz can be taken repeatedly. It was created as a learning tool.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
WARNING: If your child is sensitive to viewing the inside of animals, this may not be the course they should take. 
Since some dissection tools are sharp, I ask that parents supervise their children if they are following along. Safety is important. 
If your child wants more in-depth information, I would suggest this book. How to Dissect: Exploring With Probe and Scalpel - Special Projects for Advanced Study
* This is not required to do the course. This would a supplemental reference book.
