Advanced Biology Dissects Turtles

Along with many hours of taking notes and studying, Mr. Bradley's Advanced Biology class opened up a world of hands-on learning activities. Not only has the class dissected crawfish, and frogs, but recently they were able to dissect a turtle. The class learned many skills during this lab, listening and following directions on a paper, teamwork, and the slow and steady hands of a scientist dissecting its specimen. The class was divided up into groups of two, each group received their own materials and turtle to dissect. The process was difficult.
