On April 11th, the second-hour Biology class dissected dogfish sharks. Mrs. Wakefield orders different reptiles, mammals, and aquatic creatures from a science supply company for this school year which included eight different organisms this year such as earthworms, crayfish, fish, frogs, sharks, pregnant rats, starfish, and snakes. The reason she started dissections is because pictures do not do justice to the animals in real life. When dissecting, students are given a list of organs to identify. One of the groups also found that their shark was pregnant. Dissections take a lot of time and preparation but in the end, it is a fun and interesting experience for the students.
