About Frog Dissection

This app gives students a seemingly real frog dissection experience without the nasty smell of formaldehyde. This app might be used instead of a frog dissection lab or as a pre-lab preparation exercise. The graphics are stunning and the 360 degree views give students a close-up, 3D look at each different organ within the frog’s body cavity.

Frog Dissection Review

The frog dissection app should help win the day for those out to save the frogs. Launch the app, and an upside-down frog appears on a blue field. Users can then follow the step-by-step instructions (with voice-over) that help them insert pins where needed and use a marker, scissors, scalpel and forceps to remove the frog's skin. Once a student exposes the virtual organs, a simple click brings up a window that features a fully "spinnable" computer-generated image of the organ as well as an informative description.

Everyone is curious what the lies beyond the skin. Frogs have been a long time model of understanding the function, position and relative size of organs, tissues, and systems. This is an excellent use of touch-driven educational activity that also happens to be odorless and environmentally sensitive.

Key Features

  • Individual 3-D organ views and information
  • Voiceovers for instruction and reading
  • Dissection tools like pins, marker, scissors, scalpel, and forceps
  • Detailed labels, information on frog classification, lifecycle, and organ functions
  • Anatomical comparison of human and frog organs
  • Works on iPads, desktops, laptops, netbooks and interactive whiteboards

Frog Dissection gives students an appreciation of the layers of a frog's tissue in a system approach to anatomy and function. Students drive a scalpel or scissors with their fingertips, 'lift' tissues or organs out of the way, and spin organs around while the narrator explains what they are seeing on the screen. Frog Dissection is a best biology app for high school biology students.
