Embryology Picture Book



  • For this assignment you will be making an embryology picture book. It should include ALL of the stages from the sperm and egg to the three germ-layered gastrula. Neuralation is extra credit.
  • The most important component of your book is of course pictures! You may either sketch the stages of embryonic development (preferred), use the handouts provided, or print pictures from the internet.
  • All pictures should be adequately labeled and colored!! Neatness counts.
  • Include a detailed description of what is happening at each stage. Some stages such as gastrulation will require quite a bit of information to be thorough. On the other hand, the first few mitotic divisions of morulation do not require that much describing (be sure to add SOME information however).
  • Be creative- I’ll boost your grade!!!
