Here's something really, really cool that a reader in the fabled land of Kansas sent me. I had such fun showing it to my students ... first they had to guess what was in the mailing box using a few clues and their own questions to narrow it down.
Then, when I walked around with it allowing them to touch and hold it, many of them refused to believe that such a thing could have come from a bird ... even an ostrich.
"It's too smooth .... It's made of plastic ... "
It fit in well with our discussion of nutrients, the periodic table, and the importance of element number 20.
Thank you Ostrich egg sender!! What a cool surprise ... and I'm definitely making the apple coffee cake on page 178 of that amazing cookbook that came along with the egg.
Ya "meet" the nicest people blogging.
Here's a little Bear silliness ... he's not totally into this chase, I think the smell of the deer decaying about 20 feet from where the video starts was a distraction.
The blow dryer video didn't happen ... like any child when you want them to perform, ... he didn't!
