By: Abril Salinas, Executive|February 25, 2019
Before beginning the dissection, students take a look at the rat and are instructed to open its mouth.
Cutting into the specimen, students in Biology Enhanced were given the opportunity to further learn about the digestive tract.
After cutting open the abdomen, students were instructed to look for the stomach and intestines to understand how they are similar to those in a human.
Teacher Benjamin Balika and senior Michaela Gibbons, look into the rat’s digestive track where they were able to see the contents of the rats stomach.
Further opening up the rat, students are able to see the liver, pancreas and spleen.
