This week was a busy week in biology class; we dissected a fetal pig with our group. It was the first time I had this opportunity, I heard my friends from other schools that dissected an animal already. I was anticipating to dissect in middle school, but I had to wait until my junior year in high school. I was excited but also nervous at the same time, I didn’t want to mess up because we only got one pig. Taking a step back, we learned about the fetal pig before the dissection so we have some knowledge about it. Their anatomy is really similar to us humans, that is one of the reasons we chose the fetal pig. I put on my Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which consists of a lab coat, protective glasses, and also gloves. I brought the tray to my teacher, Ms. Nuvia, and she handed me the pig. It was pretty heavy, maybe around five pounds. I brought it to my table, and we saw the instructions on our sheet. We had to cut the pig right down the stomach and had to spread it open. My group mates and I were all surprised because it was our first time dissecting. We saw the lungs connecting with the heart. We also saw the stomach leading to the intestines. After every action, we wrote down our observations and took some pictures. We as a table also answered questions on the sheet Ms. Nuvia has given us; and also wrote down the definitions of the different words on the sheet. Next week when the class goes in dissection mode again, I wonder how we will examine the nervous system, would we see the nerves?
