Homework #6 -- Internal Cross-Sections

6 points

Due by Monday, October 6, 2014 or at
the beginning of class on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.

Complete your cross-section drawings of head, thorax, and abdomen by showing and labeling the location of major internal organs and related structures.  Be sure to include all relevant parts of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, reproductive, and nervous systems.  Start with a fresh (clean) copy of your external cross-sections (you may need to redo these).  Ask for help if you need it.  Neatness counts.

Tips for drawing:
      1.   Insects are bilaterally symmetrical; your drawings should be too!
      2.   Use crosshatching, stippling, shading, or color to distinguish various structures.
      3.   Some body parts are thick, others are thin -- vary your line width accordingly.

Submit your answers in class (preferably) or e-mail to
If you choose to submit via e-mail, save your drawings in PDF format.
