(Chicken) Wings over FJH
Many differences exist between the anatomy of humans and chickens, but one structure that shows similarities in muscle pairing and range of motion is a bird’s wing. During our unit on comparative anatomy, we study chicken wing structure and function, which is comparable to a human arm. Students discover that the three sections of the chicken wing, easily show the similarities to the human arm upper arm, forearm, and hand. The wingtip even has an “alula”, which looks somewhat like a bird’s version of a thumb.
Because this lab requires fresh, not frozen, whole wings, we are asking for a Kroger gift card, which will allow us to pre-order the correct amount of wings to be delivered at the time we need them.
