A local homeschooling family asked Larry if he'd be willing to lead a dissection. As with most Biology teachers, this sort of thing is right up his alley. It was decided a frog and a cow's eye would be the specimens of choice for this session. The other family graciously looked after ordering the specimens and they hosted the event at their house. I was self-appointed photographer and kept my distance from the.... ummm...."fun" (ewww....dissecting -- not my thing ;) )

The teacher is the first one to the table....anxiously wanting to get this show on the road...

Frogs were first on the agenda..

Everyone's suited up with cut out garbage bags for aprons, gloves and goggles

Down to work...

They worked away, learning as they went along. Judging by all the "Oh wow!"s and "Cool!!" seemed to go very well.

I am with you Linda....I would be only observing from a distance! Wonderful for the kids, though.

I love their 'aprons'! :) And in their living room, brave souls! Nice to know a biology teacher! That comes in handy!

I have signed my ds up for a disecting class at our HS co-op group (albeit just crayfishes) so that I don't have to do it at home! Although...I found it to be fascinating in school...once you get over the fact that they are DEAD and smelly!

I almost passed out in school when we did this.
