Dissection guidelines

Dissection guidelines

  • Find any of many online protocols, including the ones below. YouTubes are also effective guides.

Document your dissection

DOCUMENT YOUR DISSECTION

  • You will take pictures of your quahog and label its parts

    • First do an external picture

    • Then do an internal of what you initially see

    • Finally, do a deep internal picture.

    • Include a little card with your names in the corner

    • You will put these on 3 Google Drive presentation slides. There will be a class presentation to which you will add yours. White background only.

Quahog presentation

Quahog presentation


Clam videos

Quahog Research:

Each group needs to produce between 2 and 4 ppt slides that address your assigned area of research.

Some questions to get you started follow, but you are not limited to them.

Focus your research on the local hard shell clam, Mercenariamercenaria.

Your slides should have information and illustration. White background only.

Save them to the class-made Google doc.
