Class Summary - Today students took the textbook quiz on 4.2 - connective tissue. We then started to learn about connective tissue. We discussed the different types and where we found them on the body. There is loose connective tissue called areolar (containing both elastin and collagen along with fibroblasts), and adipose or fat tissue (large cells with little extracellular matrix), dense tissue in both regular (fibers in the same direction) and irregular (fibers in random direction), and cartilage has lacunae chambers in hyaline, elastic and fibrocartilage. Students should be able to identify from a slide the tissue and name locations of the tissue. If there is enough time, we will do a connective tissue coloring sheet.
Homework - None
Objectives - Students will be able to identify different connective tissue and name it's location.
