So far we have dissected a worm, a crayfish (pictured), and a grasshopper. I have been prepping for the dissections by reading about them, and watching the You Tube videos.
Today we are working a double dissection: clam and starfish!
If anything it's more fun than I thought it would be because the kids are fascinated by the process and have all sorts of questions and insights.
The biggest surprise has been that the younger Zoomlians really want to do dissections. I don't think that Choclo, for example, has the dexterity to safely use a scalpel, so I am thinking about getting an extra set of specimens and doing it for them.
