Assess your frog dissection in a meaningful way with this fun and engaging project. With a combination of writing and scientific drawing, creating this booklet will help students process their feelings about the dissection, solidify what they learned, and create a “souvenir” of their memorable experience.
Since the frog dissection focuses on anatomy and science skills, it makes sense to pick an assessment that will both measure and reinforce students' ability to make observations, create scientific diagrams, and describe procedures. At the same time, the frog dissection is a big deal for many middle school students and this project captures that with its fun, personal, and engaging format.
Students will love telling the story of their dissection, which means they will be much more likely to take pride in their work. Several of my students commented that this project also helped them learn more from the dissection, which is a win in my book!
Teacher directions and additional dissection resources included.
