JONESVILLE — Some students studying science at Jonesville Elementary/Middle School recently got some hands on experience involving cutting open some frogs and examining their internal organs.

In a statement released Friday Jonesville Elementary/Middle School announced that Mrs. Jaime Giles’ seventh grade Science Honor students wrapped up their Human Body Systems unit with Leopard Frog dissections on Thursday, March 9. The press release states that students followed a lab report that required them to locate the organs used in digestion, respiration, circulation, and excretion. Some of the organs, like the stomach and intestines, had to be removed in order to estimate the length. Now that students have spent months on learning about each system in the human body, they are able to see how systems are organized in a living organism.

Mrs. Giles said that “since January, this class has been thoroughly interested in the unit, so providing them with a meaningful hands on experience was an opportunity that I could not pass up!”

The press release also quotes some of the students who took part in the dissections. They described the study as a great experience that helped them understand how internal organs.

“When we went through all of the systems with the frog, it was great to experience it,” Dymia Brannon said. “Now we understand more about how the systems work together now that we have a visual.”

“Dissecting a frog was a great experience,” Caleb Bright said. “I think this actually gave us a better understanding of the path of food, oxygen, blood, and wastes. It was also cool to see the heart and lungs of an organism.”
