Ewwwww!!!! ...And COOOOOOOOOOL!!! I didn't think it was going to be so graphic, but this is a pretty good virtual dissection. It doesn't really require too much problem solving, and is very fail safe. It's nice in the sense that you don't have messy frog parts to clean up afterwards (or worry about a frog heart ending up in someone's lunchbox or shoes). It doesn't quite give the same experience as the real thing, but would be a nice project for classrooms that don't have the resources to get real frogs or dissection kits. It also would make a nice precursor to the real deal. A practice run, so to speak, so that there are more successful dissections.

There's not much collaborative options for this project-- especially since it is so straight forward. It is VERY easy to use though, and I appreciate that. It labels everything out nicely and is an interesting experience to say the least. -- Tpickrell (http://tpickrell.wordpress.com/) (Twitter- @TiffanyPickrell)

This is a great game for people who are really squeamish when it comes to dissecting frogs. It allows you to learn without actually having to dissect it. It is also good because all the teacher needs to teach the lesson is a computer and they don't have to spend days at a time getting messing trying to dissect a frog. I would recommend this game for anyone who is squeamish or just doesn't like frogs. -lizzyglass22 3/4/14
