Product Description

Dissections can be daunting- but not anymore! This thorough and engaging fetal pig activity is perfect for an upper level Biology or introductory Anatomy and Physiology course. Your students will love the detailed instructions, diagrams, photos, and worksheets included in this bundle!

Addresses NGSS HS-LS1-2.

This resource includes 2 versions:

1. Basic: Dissection instructions + explanations of structures and functions for each body system (perfect for an introduction or students needing more assistance)

2. Advanced: Dissection instructions only (perfect for a cumulative assessment or higher level, independent students)

BOTH versions work perfectly with the 5-page student lab packet including diagrams to label and comprehension questions (Answer key is included).

NOW UPDATED to include a link to a video demonstration of the lab on YouTube. This is perfect for pre-lab prep or absent students!

*Note: Teaching upper elementary or middle school? You may prefer my Fetal Pig Dissection for Young Learners, which provides an introduction to the body systems through exploration and dissection.

The lab includes student observations of both external and internal anatomy of the pig:

External Anatomy:

Gestation & Gender- age of pig, male/female

Anatomical Directions- dorsal/ventral, anterior/posterior

Basic External Structures- legs, ears, snout, etc.

Integumentary System- hair, sweat glands

Skeletal & Muscular System Overview

Internal Anatomy:

Digestive System- liver, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, sphincters, rectum, anus

Lymphatic System- spleen

Excretory System- kidneys (renal vein/artery, cortex, medulla, renal pyramids) ureters, bladder, urethra

Respiratory System- diaphragm, trachea, larynx, lungs

Circulatory System- heart (atria/ventricles), valves, coronary blood vessels, septum
