Chicken Wing Dissection in South Middle School Science Classes

Seventh grade science teacher Samantha Kuehl led her students in a chicken wing dissection on March 25. Students learned how ligaments, tendons, joints and bones come to life at the end of their musculoskeletal unit!

“It was awesome! I learned a lot,” Edi Cokovic said. He was ambitious, taking the lead in his group.

Others were not so fearless. “I am never eating chicken again!” Dara Karadsheh laughed.

“This lab helps bring to life what we talk about in class and read in the textbook. We focus on structure and function, so this allows students to experience what it does in real life,” Kuehl commented. While this lab is required for students, Kuehl has other dissections throughout the year that are optional for students.
