High School Class Dissects A Pig

High School students learned the muscle parts of a pig. Two groups of senior students dissected piglets and had to find all the muscle parts.

While dissecting the piglet, students used a handout of the pigs muscles. Students could reflect back to the handout any time during the dissecting process. Credit: Laura Fitzgerald for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
