A Fetal Pig Dissection

  1. 1. A Fetal Pig Dissection A Virtual Dissection Emily Jones 9-12 Grade Biology
  2. 2. Let’s review what we learned during our fetal pig dissection! Anatomy of our pigs: • External • Oral Cavity and Pharynx • Thoracic Cavity • The Respiratory System • Heart • Digestive System • Excretory System • Circulatory System • Reproductive System ▫ Male ▫ Female The Whole Picture • Authors Page • Resources • Quit
  3. 3. External Anatomy • Anterior is toward the cephalic (head) end of the pig. • Posterior is toward the caudal (tail) end of the pig. • Superior is toward the dorsal (back) surface. Superior • Inferior is toward the ventral (belly) surface. (dorsal) Anterior Posterior (cephalad) (caudal) Quit Inferior (ventral)
  4. 4. Oral Cavity and Pharynx Make sure you can identify the hard palate, soft palate, and the epiglottis. Quit
  5. 5. The Thoracic Cavity The thoracic cavity contains parts of the respiratory system, the circulatory system, the endocrine system, the immune system and the skeletal system. Be sure you can identify these parts: • Heart • Lungs • Ribs • Diaphragm • Larynx • Esophogus Quit
  6. 6. The Heart It is important that you know the parts of the heart. Don’t forget to check out the slides about arteries and veins! Arteries • Do they go towards or away from the heart?? Veins • Do they go towards or away from the heart?? Quit
  7. 7. Major arteries LEAVING the heart Quit
  8. 8. Major veins ENTERING the heart Quit
  9. 9. The Digestive System Be able to identify: • Stomach • Liver • Large Intestine • Small Intestine Quit
  10. 10. Excretory System The important features in this system are the kidneys and the urinary bladder. Make sure you can identify them! Quit
  11. 11. Circulatory System Be able to identify these major veins and arteries. Make sure you understand Quit that these pictures are from two very different parts of the pigs body!
  12. 12. The Reproductive System As I’m sure you’re aware, there are a lot of differences between the male and female reproductive systems. You are responsible for knowing these differences and being able to tell if a fetal pig is male or female! Quit
  13. 13. Male Reproductive System Quit
  14. 14. Female Reproductive System Quit
  15. 15. So that’s it! Wasn’t that cool? Make sure you go over all of the systems that were covered by this presentation. Don’t forget to know the basic functions of the parts as well! Quit
  16. 16. Author’s Page My name is Emily Jones and I am in the College of Education, with a major in chemistry and a minor in biology. I decided to base my interactive PowerPoint presentation on the fetal pig dissection that I did in my introductory biology course. I chose this because the dissection is very interactive and teaches the students a lot, and it is a lot of fun. I set the presentation up as if I were a high school biology teacher and this would be a resource for my students. The main goal of the presentation is that it would serve as a guide to help the students prepare for a practical examination. Any Questions?? Just email me! Quit
