In this multi-day summer camp that meets three times in one week, we will be focusing on a different dissection each day. You must have taken Beginner Dissection Summer Camp (or have previous dissection experience----please message teacher) in order to enroll in this summer camp. In class one, we will be starting our intermediate dissection with the crayfish (or crawdad). This specimen has a truly fabulous set of gills! In class two, we will be moving onto another aquatic specimen, the...
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.
No homework will be assigned.
6 files available upon enrollmentHome 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 $5.60, the crayfish cost is $2.15, the perch is $3.60, and the frog is $5.90. Amazon also has a dissection kit for roughly $10. 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.

2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
