Fetal Pig Model Lab Activity
Looking Inside A Fetal Pig!

A model of a nearly full-term fetal pig will be studies in this lab activity. This model is cast from an actual specimen and clearly shows all of the intricate structural detail that can usually only be seen on real dissected specimen. All of the internal organs and major arteries and veins found along the body cavity, head, and neck are featured. Also, the heart, lungs, stomach, liver, and intestines are removable as a single unit so students can study the deeper organs and vasculature. Using this model model that has the look and feel of a real specimen, students will study and identify the parts of a fetal pig. This lab activity employs Framework Science Standard (LS1) and (LS3).

This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards. Pre- and Post-laboratory assessments and vocabulary words all target specific Science and Engineering Practices and common core standards. The teacher guide also contains specific "Did You Know" concepts that link the real world with scientific standards explored. A student copymaster is also included. This demonstration can be performed repeatedly with the materials provided.
