Brooks Museums Magnet Elementary School
It's that time of year for work in the third grade garden. This year while we were weeding and turning the soil we came across these mammoth carrots! They were planted by last years third graders. Hopefully this years crop will come up while we are still in school and not over the summer. Cross those fingers!
Today and the next week or so, the 3rd grade classes are watching me take apart a chicken. Not to make soup, but to see how the muscles, joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage all work together. Mrs. Brown's class was the first to experience this today! They did a great job. Here are some of the comments that I heard.
"It was awesome and at the sametime gross" - Miles "This was disgusting and really cool!" - Parker "I thought digging inside the bones was really cool." - Sam and from someone in the peanut gallery, "I will never look at chicken the same way again!"
Here is someone crossing off our check list of things we wanted to see!
Is that a ball and socket joint we are seeing?
