Here are some still shots of the kids in action:
The eye - poor Molly Cow is still staring at us! This actually helped the kids see the muscles and fat attached to the eye (gross).
I can't believe my little 7 year old doesn't mind dissecting things like this!!! Here is the lesson - don't limit your kids to what you think is gross or "un-do-able"!
These 2 (not my children) are having a great time holding parts - see it's not just my kids that are enjoying this!
Here is a close up of the back of the eye - if you look close you can see the lens in the middle - and the shiny green at the back of the eye. Animals have this reflective coating to help them see at night - we don't have this - this is why animal eyes glow at night when you shine a light on them!
