Parker, my eldest, was doing a study on weather for his science class last month, and with the term over I wondered what the class would be tackling next.
Turns out they are going to be studying their own bodies!
last night at the dinner table Parker was excited to tell us that this term they will be using microscopes and everything! He said that soon they will be taking a Q-Tip and rubbing the inside of their mouth, then they will get to see the cells in their cheeks.
It's not DNA testing, but it sure does get the kids excited!
I told Parker he ought to take some dog hair to class to view under the microscope, because I think Smokey's hair would look neat!
