Living Environment Students Dissect Chicken Wings

Corinth grade 8 Living Environment students have been learning about the skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems. And, rather than just read about skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones, Mrs. Newell gave the students a chance to examine these in a hands-on science lab where they dissected chicken wings. The purpose of the dissection is to help students understand how different structures (like muscles, nerves, and bones) work together to allow the chicken to move. The wings were raw, so the students also followed good safety and hygiene practices to prevent spreading any possible germs.
