Dissection of the Rat An Exploration of the Various Organs Systems
General Rules No Food or Drink at your Station at all times –Participation pts. Will be lost!!! Remain at your station at all times unless instructed Keep track of all instruments (do a count everyday) No open toed shoes Do not cut anything unless instructed Always follow your Dissection guide
Dissection Tasks Researcher & Photographer: –Sets up computer (obtains images & info.) –Wipes down the entire table table top –Takes photographs, prints & shares with group –Corrects all IQ’s for the group –Researches key information –Keeps the group in check with Dissection Manual Equipment manager: –Cleans, dries, and returns all supplies to the appropriate places. –Organizes & counts all intruments –Assists with the Clean up procedures (pan, table, etc) –Makes labels/prepares them on pins Dissectors/Assistant( min. 2 people) - Observe the dissection procedures and share with rest of the group.
Initial Procedures to Begin the Dissection Dissection Guide: turn to the appropriate Pgs. Beginning through pg. 16 so you can answer the first two set of Guiding Questions. Collect all the Instruments & place them in a pouch that you have labeled with your period and group members. Freezer Bag: using a sharpie label your bags as follows with your period and all lab group member. Choose a rat and give it a name. Choose both a male and female name for now. You will verify the gender later and circle that name on the bag then. Use the rat to help answer some of the guiding questions. Tie one piece of string on the upper extremities with each end on each forelimb and another string on the lower extremities (you will keep these strings tied on the rat at all times.
Closing Procedures at the End of Class Obtain some paper towels and roll the rat in them then place your rat into the labeled freezer bag. Make a TIGHT Seal with all the air evacuated out. Clean your tray and instruments. Put all your instruments in you pouch or box. Place tray, instruments, and rat in your designated drawer. **Spray down the ENTIRE table top with windex and thoroughly clean it leaving no streaks. **FOLD your Lab coats & stack neatly in the back Return the dissection guides and computer back to the cart. **You will store your Pan, Instruments, and Rats in the available drawers located along the sides of the room.
