How do squid swim? Catch prey? Eat? Reproduce? Release ink to escape predators? These are just some of the questions students will come up with when they observe squid swimming, eating, and reproducing. Through external explorations, observations, and dissection of a fresh squid, students will find evidence to answer their own questions and make explanations for the physiological functions and how these structures work together as a system.
