This activity is used to help students compare homologous traits between different arthropods. The activity provides general background knowledge to review the different classes of arthropods.
Students may then begin a virtual dissection, which allows them to utilize various instruments to dissect and analyze different organisms. This is completely virtual and good for squeamish students who may not want to take part in a larger dissection activity.
I use this assignment as an alternative to when we dissect blue crabs in class. The lab has a full set of questions and extension options as well. (Computer Required)
