First dissection day! In class the students have been studying both the external anatomy and internal systems of the earthworm. They have looked at characteristics that has put this animal in the phylum Annelida meaning ‘ringed’ or segmented worms. They have created a 3D paper model of the earthworm that contains the circulatory and digestive system. Now the children have the opportunity to look at the real anatomy through their first dissection. They were impressive by displaying proper lab procedure, technique and engagement.
