The Anatomy and Physiology Honors class, composed of Juniors and Seniors, is flying through its curriculum. Mrs. Acquadro has taught this course since it was offered three  years ago.  Ever since the first day of school, the anatomy class has talked about many different physical structures, glands, and tissues. The first lesson  was histology (the study of tissue). After the class had learned about all the tissues, they had to perform a dissection on a chicken wing. While dissecting the chicken wing, students got to observe many ligaments, joints, and tissues. Following the dissection, students went on to study the layers of the skin and the glands in the skin. The students have learned about the multitude of functions the skin performs; how the skin protects the body, and how glands and hair lower someone’s body temperature. Luckily for the class, Mrs. Acquadro’s favorite chapter is fast approaching. Perhaps the most fascinating chapter in the course is the upcoming chapter about the brain. Many exciting labs will begin when students reach this chapter. Students will even get to dissect a sheep’s brain! Many interesting and exciting experiments await the Anatomy and Physiology class.
