Week at LaVille High School/Middle School
posted by: abeebe
I had a wonderful week down south in LakeVille, IN. I was with Mrs. Barden, and her students-one 7th grade class, 4 freshman biology classes, and one honors biology. On day 3 and 4 Mrs. Barden showed some of a DVD titled “Inside the Womb of Multiples“. It was a terrific resource for making connections between human embryology and how it compares with zebrafish embryonic development. The footage was amazing! It showed how siblings fight, kick, and interact within the womb. There were many similarities in the vocabulary as well as the visual stages that were perfect in comparing/contrasting humans and zebrafish. And because it was about humans, the students were naturally curious about what they might have done while still in their mothers. I am purchasing my own copy, and will make it available to teachers if they choose to use it during their BioEYES week. Thanks, Mrs. Barden, for the great idea!
