Squid are invertebrates belonging to the phylum Mollusca and class Cephalopoda (“head-foot”). Squid dissection allows students to examine structural adaptations and observe the relationship between form and function. Squid are complex, intelligent invertebrates that allow comparison to higher- and lower-level animals. The activity supports 3-dimensional learning and builds toward the following:

  • NGSS Scientific and Engineering Practices: Developing and Using Models or Constructing Explanations
  • NGSS Core Idea: LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes and LS4: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

This webinar walks you through a frog dissection and explains how you can integrate dissection into the 3-D instructional model.
