Who doesn’t love a sale? John and I try to stock up on resources that we have in our Teachers Pay Teachers shopping cart during sale times. Are you lucky enough to know what you are teaching next year? Get a jump start on gathering fun materials while they’re on sale! The best way to find what you need in our store is to go to our home page and look to the left where it ways “Custom Categories”
Well another Valentine’s Day has rolled around so what better time than now to dissect a heart? We started the Sheep Heart Dissection Lab today in my class. This lab is part of my Cardiovascular System Unit. Sheep hearts are used and the students really like doing this type of hands on lab activities. I also enjoy this unit and particularly this lab very much.
Well it’s been a little while but we’re back! Holidays seem to get out of control and getting swamped with things to do always happens not to mention it’s cold and flu season :(. With all that behind us now, what better way to start the new year than with a good old “Cow Eye Dissection”. Actually I’m sure there are much better ways to start the new year but we just finished our Nervous System Unit and now we are covering some special senses. This is a good, quick, one day lab that is great for learning the structures of the eye up close and personal. (Please note you need to have gone over eye anatomy and preview the lab ahead of time to make sure you can get finished in one class period.) Beware this can be considered a little gross for some people but in anatomy this is pretty cool.
