Virtual Oyster Dissection (Grades 4-12)

Shucked Oyster with labelled parts

This live oyster dissection introduces students to shellfish, shellfish aquaculture and their unique biology. This fieldtrip begins with an introduction to our station and a talk on shellfish biology. Students will ask questions and watch as an oyster is dissected. Teachers will receive anatomy diagrams for students to fill out as they watch the dissection. A teacher's answers copy will be provided so that the activity can be taken up after the field trip.

This is a fantastic opportunity to enhance any invertebrate or marine unit and can be customized to focus on topics covered in your own classroom.
