Toad Dissection

Saturday, October 18, 2008

What’s that green stuff?
Is that his poop?

These are just some of the comments I heard from the seven 5-9 year old missionary kids Saturday morning as Jeff dissected a fat toad on our kitchen table. What a fun way to learn about organs and muscles! The kids loved opening up the stomach and seeing his dinner – flies, beetles and even a piece of a blue balloon.

The night before Ryan misspoke and said, “I cannot wait till we digest a toad!” and the night after the digestion…I mean, dissection Joshua prayed, “Thank you God that we now know what a frogs insides look like and that he eats our balloons.” Even 2 year old Micah wanted to participate in the action – tonight he came inside with a frog clenched in his hands.

The eager learners - if only all science was this fun to learn
