Dissection, the NGSS, and Three-Dimensional Instruction

Are you looking for ways to integrate dissection into your three-dimensional instruction? We’re here to help with teaching tips and resources, webinars, lab kits, and supplies.

Carolina Staff

The Next Generation Science Standards* (NGSS) do not explicitly refer to dissection, but you can easily meet several science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and performance expectations with dissection. It’s an ideal way to emphasize hands-on, minds-on learning while getting your students excited about science.

Check out the resources below for ideas on how to do it!
