Capitalize on the current popularity of crime scene investigation TV with this unique forensic lab activity. Students conduct a pig dissection by modeling the protocols used by a pathologist for a human autopsy. They carefully record the external features and use a typical "Y" incision to open the body cavity for a detailed examination. Then they remove all of the organ systems. When students complete the forensic dissection, they return the organs to the body cavity and suture the incisions.
