We had our first day of dissecting! It was lots of fun, especially because the Whitney's were able to join us, which meant each of the kids had a lab partner. Cutting up stinky specimens is always more fun with a friend, don't you think?
The smell of formaldehyde always brings back old memories of high school Anatomy and Physiology class. Unfortunately my lab partner was pregnant and would have to run out to throw up every class period. Not so fun....for her in particular. Anyways, no one at our house was grossed out enough to even think about throwing up- in fact, I think everyone learned a lot and had an enjoyable time in the process.
I was amazed how neatly Taylor and Henry were able to open up their worm. Pretty impressive for 4th graders!
Taylor decided he could get a better angle kneeling on the table.
Hailey and Lili hard at work.
Taylor was very proud of how his worm turned out. He asked if he could hang it on the wall in his bedroom. Mmmmm.....I don't think so. Come back when you've skinned a bear or something and we'll talk....
