In this multi-class camp that meets three times in one week, students will perform the dissection of a crayfish, perch, and frog. Beginner Dissection Summer Camp (or previous dissection) is a pre-requisite.

Class experience

After this summer camp, students will successfully have passed the intermediate dissection techniques and be ready to move onto Advanced classes.
I was a middle school science teach for 10 years and in that time, have lead hundreds of students through many dissections including the hot dog, earthworms, clams, frogs, and sharks. In my college Zoology class, I was the only student to successfully extract the entire spinal nerve of a crayfish that the professor had ever had! I find dissections fascinating and a good stepping stone for any student interested in anatomy, physiology, zoology, or college sciences.
Must have taken Beginner Camp with me, done beginner dissection classes with me (earthworm, starfish, clam), or have previous dissection experience. If you have not taken a class with me but do have previous experience, please message me.

Home Science Tools (homesciencetools.com) is not the only place to purchase a dissection kit or the three specimens; however, they are who I personally use because they are very cost effective. They have a dissection kit for roughly $12, the crayfish cost is roughly $3, the perch is $5, and the frog is roughly $6. Amazon also has a dissection kit for roughly $15. You will need to purchase one crayfish, one perch, and one frog along with a dissection kit. Students will also need a clean place to work on their dissection (it can get messy!) so a paper plate, plate, paper towels, dissection tray....something that is easy to clean up.

Dissection kits contain sharp tools. It is at the discretion of the parent to make sure your student is mature enough to independently operate them during a dissection.

I will be on vacation from April 5-20th. I will still be answering messages but may be slower in doing so than usual as some of the time I am gone, I will not have access to wifi/cell phone data.
