Last week we received our box from
We ordered owl pellets (Week 6) and a frog for dissection (Week 8).
The TM listed to have one or the other. But, I decided to order both.
I was so excited for it to arrive!
the day the box came, I got all wimpy!
I had no idea what it would look like, so I didn't want to open it.
Karl opened it when he got home. I watched from a safe distance-- hee hee
But, I'm here to tell you (and show you) that it's not scary, or smelly, at all.
After the box is opened, all you will see is paper--
See? Not scary.
Then there is a sheet of paper with your order and your specimens are underneath.
Here is Mr. Frog Dude
There is a frog in there-- here's a close-up:
These frogs are a nice size and they have latex-injected veins and arteries to help the kiddos see them better.
The owl pellets were a lot smaller than I thought they would be.
These were definitely not scary...
So there you have it!
You don't need to be the slightest bit nervous about opening your box :D
Do any of you have any good dissection stories? What about tips?
I'm planning on all of us wearing gloves and doing the dissections outside on a plasticwrap-wrapped picnic table...
