Roland-Story students in the veterinary science class have been studying about animal anatomy in their recent unit. In their current lab, the students are dissecting fetal pigs to learn more about animal internal anatomy and the organs that comprise the various systems.
“This is a great opportunity for our kids to learn about proper procedures that are involved with working with animals and surgical procedures. Students were given instructions on the ethics of dissection as well as the various tools and equipment being used,” said Brad Taylor, veterinary science instructor.
This is one of the recognized lessons from the CASE curriculum (Curriculum for Agriculture Science Education) in which Roland-Story has been certified. Students are learning about different types of muscle tissues as well as the internal organs and what their functions are.
