Worm & Frog - Anatomy and Physiology

  • Topic:

    In this unit we will learn about the life cycles and body plans of the earthworm and frog.  We will study how both organisms grow, eat, move, and reproduce.  We learn about the importance of dissection and investigate the internal and external structures of the earthworm and frog.
