Frog Dissection
An odorless, environmentally sensitive way to learn from dissecting a frog!
Publisher: EMANTRAS

Why we love this app

For much less than the lab supplies and equipment, students can explore what lies beneath the skin with a virtual dissection. Remember to bring your headphones, most of the activities are guided by a lab assistant. This app is very well done and has excellent visuals, 3d rotating organ parts, and animations.

What it teaches and how it works

This app might be used instead of a frog dissection lab or as a pre-lab preparation exercise. It gives students an appreciation of the layers of a frog's tissue in a system approach to anatomy and function. Students drive a scalpel or scissors with their fingertips, 'lift' tissues or organs out of the way, and spin organs around while the narrator explains what they are looking at. A two column comparison of Frog versus Human Systems is given as a static look with text summary.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Everyone is curious what the lies beyond the skin. Frogs have been a long time model of understanding the function, position and relative size of organs, tissues, and systems. This is an excellent use of touch-driven educational activity.
