Home School Biology 101

Shiloh and Bethany began an earthworm dissection for their home school high school biology class. In our first picture, Shiloh displays a gizzard and a crop from the posterior end of the specimen. This class of animal is from Phylum Annelida.
The specimen is laying on its ventral side (the side with the setae). (By the way--sewing pins work great when one is doing a dissection.)
Eden demonstrates her knowledge of animal classification. Next Biology 101 dissection will be a perch and a frog. These young biologists just can't wait!!
