Worm Dissection

Today Saint James School 6th graders, with parents’ permission, dissected worms during their Earth Science class.  Throughout the dissection, Mrs. Plante used images on the SMARTboard to help the students identify various parts of their worm including it’s brain, intestine, and gizzard – to name a few.  Last week, the 7th grade class dissected frogs using a similar process.  Special thanks to all the parent volunteers who came in to assist with both dissection programs (click pictures to enlarge).
