8th Grade Dissection

The eighth grade has been studying all of the body systems, the organs involved, and how they interact.  They used the dissection of a leopard frog to identify and review some of the major organs and systems.  Before the hands-on dissection, each student completed a virtual frog dissection on an iPad.
