Squid Dissection (Middle School) @ Mira Mesa Branch Library

Description: Squid. It's not just what's for dinner. In this hands-on class each student will get to help dissect a squid and learn all about their insides. They may even get to write their name in squid ink! This class will improve the students understanding of how to build their basic scientific research skills and how to apply these skills to their overall understanding of the many critters that fill our oceans. By gaining a better understanding of the organisms that occupy our oceans, we can build a deeper understanding of the oceans themselves and how to best take care of our world.
