One of my favorite part about learning is doing interactive learning . It's where I get to talk to my classmates and discuss about a certain topic that was presented.
And this type of activity is usually done in a lab environment, where we also get to interact with things that we are learning about.
I'm currently bringing this up because I just finished dissecting a chicken wing in one of my lab.
Who would've thought that chicken wings have similar muscle structures as humans.
I just find this very fascinating because labs are so fun while the students maintain learning about new things without heavy guidance from the instructor. Like, okay here's your chicken wing now open it up and try to point out which part is the tendon, cartilage ,etc.
It also helps the students to not solely rely on their textbooks and creates an environment for students to interact with each other.

Taking classes with lab is one way to find new friends. So, I hope your labs are as fun as mine and good luck on your study!
