April 2017 – Chicken Feet

Earlier in the year, our elementary school CSW classes learned about the structure of human hands by building working models showing bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

In April, our middle- and high-school classes explored this topic by dissecting actual chicken feet.   In addition to learning basic dissection techniques and safety, the students were able to do”hands-on” tests and observation of the actions way tendons, bones, and muscles interacted to move the digits of the foot.
