PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A 19-page dissection guide that covers the internal and external anatomy of the squid.

This student-led lab activity is a great introduction to invertebrate anatomy for biology students. This comprehensive guide includes a pre-lab reading, student-led external dissection, student-led internal dissection, two blank anatomical diagrams to label, discussion questions, and an answer key that allows for greater comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the common or European squid (Loligo vulgaris).


Please Note:

This guide serves as a basic introduction to invertebrate anatomy for general Biology courses. It is not designed to be a comprehensive or exhaustive exploration of anatomy and physiology. Please check the preview carefully to make sure it fits your curriculum.
