5th Grade Squid Dissection Continues at Virtual BFS

5th grade scientists rolled up their sleeves and dissected squids last week! Each spring, the 5th grade dissects squids and the experience is a rite of passage and learning in the Middle School. Thanks to the dedication and creativity of teacher Laurice Hwang, the traditional experience continued at Virtual BFS! As colleague Rachel Mazor noted, “It’s good to know that some traditions live on…”. A completely voluntary experience, students who wished ordered squids to their homes and signed onto Zoom to follow as Laurice dissected a squid in her own kitchen. After experiencing this hands on study of anatomy and the animal’s various adaptations, the students gathered later for a calamari making session with Laurice.
