Fish Dissection



*PLEASE NOTE, THE PHOTO'S IN THIS POST MAY NOT BE FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!*

Our fish dissection went well :) I found a couple of great links to help us.

E did some observational sketching whist dissecting. The whole process was fascinating.

We discovered the heart, liver, Pyloric caecae, swim bladder, gut, spent ages wondering over the gills, the eyes & even the brain!






Miss R was not terribly impressed with what we were doing. She chose to make a robot instead:

LOVE it; we did a sheep heart last week as part of our human body project (could't get a human one!!). My daughter poked it with a pencil whilst my son and I got stuck in!!

And Miss Mason was concerned about kids dissecting flowers...

Did she have fun...or would she have preferred the robot?
