I would talk to your teacher about your thoughts regarding animal cruelty and ask if you can do a virtual dissection instead
I agree with jogeoler99. I had a similar experience in high school again in college. I spoke to the instructors both times and expressed my feelings about the assignment, my strong conviction about exploiting animals, and my willingness to do an assignment that didn’t involve dissection. They were surprisingly agreeable, especially since I also wasn’t wearing leather shoes or belt Good luck, and welcome to an ever-growing family of caring and compassion.
