Coop: Animal Investigations

G has been taking the most amazing class this six weeks. Animal Investigations has been getting up close and personal with animal parts. One week they studied eyes, including dissecting cows. Then cells by making cell cookies. They dissected owl pellets and finally the piece de resistance, pig hearts, lungs and trachea. Their final session was on products that animals give us. I have never heard it is was gross but AWESOME so much in my life. The class was so popular it is beeing offered again next semester.

We had the best time dissecting owl pellets. I try to order them every 2 years because all my children love it so much. It's a rewarding experience. Did you know they make the fake owl pellets now? I wonder how those are....
Oh, and when we found a real owl pellet in our yard once, we knew what it was instantly! So cool!
