This week ninth grade students in the Human Systems and Disease class worked in their teams to dissect and learn about the anatomy of a fetal pig. The class, over the course of the semester, learned how to properly dissect several specimens such as livers and eyeballs. The class had to work together to properly and safely dissect the pig. The class is taught by ninth grade bio teacher Jill Rutter. This was one of the final dissections the class did for the year.
