I want to make sure my students at Maynard Jackson High School have the materials they need to succeed, so I created a request for my classroom at DonorsChoose.org:
Anatomy and Physiology Students Need Dissection Specimens!
My project only has 30 days to go and we need your support. If you chip in to help my students, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.

Cat Dissection
Learning Objectives:
1. SWBAT identify and describe the principal structures of the cat brain; IOT relate each to its function in the body.

2. SWBAT identify important parts of the cat brain in a preserved specimen; IOT demonstrate techniques used by scientist in the lab.


Autopsy Article - read about the history of autopsies
Lab Guide - Lists all of the structures you will need to identify on the cat
Lab Guide Questions - answer as your group dissects the cat, describe the anatomy, structures and locations
Cat Dissection Gallery - shows the main structures you will need to identify for the cat practice.











  
​                                  Unit 9:   Immune System
                      Learning Goals:  SWBAT analyze the physical, chemical, and                                                            biological properties of process systems as these relate to                                                            transportation, absorption and excretion within the immune                                                        systems.

    Digestive System/Excretory System
        Learning Goals:
          1.  Describe the functions of the digestive system.
            2.  Compare and contrast chemical and mechanical digestion.
            3.  Describe the pathway of food through the alimentary canal organs (7 total) and for each organ, state the type of digestion (mechanical and/or chemical) that occurs.  If chemical digestion occurs, additionally state what enzyme is involved and what is broken down.
           4.  Explain the role of the pancreas and describe each of the five pancreatic secretions.

Social and Economic issues will also be discussed as it relates to human reproduction and human populations.
​Reproductive System
Learning Goals:
                       *Students will analyze the role of the reproductive system as it pertains to the growth and development of humans.
                         a. Explain how the functions of the reproductive organs are regulated by hormonal interactions.
                         b. Describe the stages of human embryology and gestation including investigation of gestational and congenital disorders (e.g. ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, cleft palate, hydrocephaly,  fetal alcohol syndrome).
                         c. Describe the stages of development from birth to adulthood (i.e.  neonatal period, infancy, childhood, adolescence and puberty, and maturity). 





Circulatory System                                            Learning Goals:
​        * SWBAT analyze the physical, chemical, and biological properties of  process systems as these relate to transportation, absorption and excretion, including the cardiovascular systems.
                   *SWBAT Analyze, and explain the relationships between the  respiratory and cardiovascular systems as they obtain oxygen needed for the oxidation of nutrients and removal of carbon dioxide.
                    *SWBAT Relate the role of the urinary system to regulation of body wastes (i.e. water electrolyte balance, volume of body fluids).
