If you did not complete Day 3 VPD – Worksheet – terms for Day 3 – Excretory System, complete and turn in tomorrow if you want to continue with the dissection.


Check out daily detail for other virtual pig dissection links and use them to help you identify the structures you will be required to identify.

 1. Following   Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College) you will need to be sure you have all of day 1 & 2 terms identified in your pig. 

2. Due to lack of homework being done, we did a copy assignment in class instead. 






 Do definitions and explanations of function for each of the terms on the VPD – Worksheet – terms day 4 – Circulatory System. 


Look for pictures on-line.  I will post the pictures I’ve taken so far this evening.  I will have a link right here to see them.


Here is the link for the pictures I have taken in class so far.  Gallery of Pictures from Fetal Pig Dissection – Per 6 - 2008

 VPD – Worksheet – terms for Day 3 – Excretory System

Today we continued with the pig dissection for day 3.  identify all terms from day 3 – Excretory System.  You will have to move the intestines over to one side to expose the kidneys.  You will also be using a razor blade to slice the kidney in half on the frontal plane.  Also, follow the ureters down to the bladder.






Use Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College) to be sure you can find all structures studied so far.  Then take the following quizzes by copying the screens and filling in the correct answers for :

  1. Anatomical References
  2. Sexing your Pig
  3. Digestive System
  4. Excretory System
  5. Circulatory System

VPD – Worksheet – terms day 4 – Circulatory System.  We did circulatory system today and went back to review







Start memorizing terms from today’s handout Fetal Pig Dissection – terms & structures Day 1-4 

and be sure you can find them in the Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College) pictures.

Use Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College) to help locate and identify all structures from Worksheets for days 1 & 2, 3, and 4.  This is a catch up day on dissections.  You were given Fetal Pig Dissection – terms & structures Day 1-4 in class today.  Be sure you can find each of these structures in your pig. 












Daily Details


5/19 – Mon

For the Fetal Pig Dissection – you will be responsible for the following:

1. Each individual will be responsible for labeled drawings of their activity in lab each day.  These drawings need to have your individual name on them, not your group.

2. All labels seen in the Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College) will be included in your lab practical.  You will need to not only identify each structure, but you will need to describe its function.

3. There will be an test at the end of the dissection days (5 days).  You will be responsible for labeling each part of the pig from pictures and understanding the function of each structure and part. (100 points)

4. There will be a practical exam where each lab group will be quizzed, one group at a time.  The answer of each member of the lab will be counted for or against all members of the group. (50 points)


Here are more virtual pig dissections with really good pictures.

Virtual Pig Dissection (Whitman College)  (this is the one were are using as a primary guide.

Virtual Pig Dissection (U. of Central Oklahoma – Biology Dept)  - pictures are excellent and exceptionally well done.  Very nice Power Point presentation can be downloaded and viewed on any computer even without the internet (after it is downloaded and brought over).  I strongly encourage you to make use of this one!

Virtual Pig Dissection (Clinton CC – New York)   pretty good, lots of pic that you can click to enlarge.
