A Seasonal Science Lesson

A Seasonal Science Lesson  thumbnail178646
Shoreham-Wading River High School students conducted a seasonal scientific investigation as a culminating activity for a histology unit with a turkey leg dissection.

During the unit with science teacher Ms. Lauren Ocker, the students explored the four types of body tissues – epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous – both in structure and how they function together. Once they conducted the dissection they were able to examine how tendons work and how the different tissues can interact together in the body.

“They were able to see three of the four types of body tissues in their turkey leg and did a great job working independently,” Ms. Ocker said.
