Today the 7th graders saw how muscles work to move limbs by dissecting a chicken wing. They worked in groups to cut into a raw chicken wing so they could see the muscles. Then they pulled on the muscles to see how they moved the wing. Digging deeper, they saw the silvery tendons that connect muscle to bone. Deeper still, they saw the ligaments that hold the bones together.
Hopefully no one will have chicken for dinner tonight. 🙂
