Feedback form is now closed.
Join us in this fun and interactive workshop to explore how the freshwater flatworm Planaria can be used to excite your students and immerse them in hands-on, inquiry-based investigations. These wiggly flatworms are not only safe to handle, but are cute to look at and can be easily maintained in a classroom with limited supplies. Furthermore, the Planaria are greatly used in scientific research, giving a real purpose for your learners to explore them. Discover through hands-on activities the value of using the Planarian to bring alive topics such as organisms interactions with their environment, sexual and asexual reproduction, cell division, stem cells and regeneration and topics in anatomy and physiology. Classroom-ready resources including vendor information for these organisms, care and feeding requirements, links to free teaching resources/interactives, and alignments to TEKS across grade levels will be provided.
