Monday, August 22, 2016 - Welcome back to school, 7th graders!  This is the year you will focus on Life Science.  See the photos below from last June to see one of the labs you will do later this year.
The seventh grade science classes spent part of the last week of school dissecting a preserved frog.  Each student worked with a partner.  Students were excited to see actual tendons, ligaments and organs that they had read about in preparation for the dissection.
Also, in preparation for the frog dissection, students dissected fresh chicken feet, and saw a demo of the dissection of a fresh pig kidney, as well as fresh pig heart, pig stomach, and chicken livers.
