Carolina® Forensic Dissection Kit for a Class of 32

$260.00
Product: (in stock)

Description

In this unique lab activity, students conduct a forensic pig dissection by modeling the protocols used by a pathologist for a human autopsy. They record their observations of external anatomy and then use a Y incision to open the body cavity for a detailed examination. Students remove all organ systems and take detailed measurements and observations of each organ on the provided Autopsy Report. When students complete the forensic dissection, they return the organs to the body cavity and suture the incisions. Along with the Carolina's Perfect Solution® pigs, a preserved adult pig heart and pig kidney are also included for comparison with the dissected specimen. A set of 7 prepared slides allows students to extend and enhance the dissection by examining some of the tissue types found within each system. This fresh, new approach to pig dissection provides a real-world connection to the popular world of forensics.

Time Requirement
Teacher prep, 45 minutes. Dissection, approximately one 3-hour block (or can be divided into multiple class periods). Note: Carolina’s Wetting Solution (items #220120A and #220121A) is recommended if completing dissection over multiple days.

Digital Resources
Includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS. Digital resources may include a teacher manual and student guide, pre-lab activities and setup videos, phenomenon videos, simulations, and post-lab analysis and assessments.
