Frog Dissection

OVERVIEW

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Subjects covered: Sciene, Art, and ELA

Parts/tools required: 3D printer, toothpicks (optional)

  • Frog anatomy
  • Frog’s life cycle
  • Amphibians
  • Dissection of frogs

Common Core:

ELA:  W2.4, W.2.7, W.2.8, W.5.7, W.5.8, W.5.9

          Rl.2.1, Rl.2.3, Rl.2.8, Rl.5.7 – SL/2.5 – RST 6-8

  • To teach students about the anatomy of frogs.

  • To give students to hands-on approach of learning about frogs (the clean way). 
  • Students should be able to identify the parts of a frog.   

The recommended settings for a 3D printer are:

  • 20-60mm/sec speed
  • 20%-40% infill
  • PLA material
  • Default top and bottom layers of 2
  • Perimeter settings of 1

One set is estimated to be 12 hours with 7 total pieces. Printing times may vary on 3d printer and/or settings such as infill and speed. 

If the pieces are to be painted, a white material is a good base color filament to use. Translucent materials also make it more interesting.  There are two sets of 3d models provide. The body is also split into two parts. Use toothpicks to assemble. (optional)
