Drew Central Fourth Graders Learn About “Cephalopods: The Jet Set”

Monday, May 5th, 2014

DSC00174Drew Central fourth grade students in Eva Arrington’s class learned about “Cephalopods: The Jet Set.” Students learned to classify by kingdom, phylum, and class. They worked with their lab partner and researched the four main types of cephalopods: octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus. Cephalopod means head and feet. Cephalopods do not have a torso.

The Distance Learning program at Drew Central Elementary in conjunction with the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward, Alaska guided students on dissecting squid. Students discovered the ink sac which squids use to confuse their enemies. They located the eyes, mouth, two tentacles, pen, etc. Students looked for the reproductive system to determine if their squid was a male or female. Another discovery was that squids have bilateral symmetry.
