Virtual Dissections

Yes. It’s me. I’m still here. My semester has been extremely busy (since I am prepping 4 lectures and 3 labs per week). I can’t believe that it is almost November…and the last day of the semester is December 10th.

Anyway, back to talking about science in the classroom. We dissect fetal pigs in my Biology for Majors lab. I found a couple of virtual fetal pig dissection sites this past summer:

  • The Virtual Fetal Pig Dissection (from Whitman)
  • The Virtual Pig Dissection (from Fort Kent Community High School in Fort Kent, Maine)

    These sites are extremely useful as ancillaries for actual dissections, which is how I use them in my lab. But they could also stand on their own for those who don’t want to use actual fetal pigs in the classroom.

    I would be very interested in any additional links for other virtual dissections of any other organism (cats, earthworms, frogs, crayfish, humans, etc.). Post any relevant links in the comments section. Thanks!!
