I hated biology in school. Of course, back then, it was still 'appropriate' and a course mandate that you actually dissected an animal in order to pass the Science course. Thank goodness that organizations such as PETA has put an end to such graphic barbarianism. (Well, for the most part - I think some schools still kill helpless froggies)
In the 3rd and 4th Grade however, the intricate functions and placement of the inner organs of a living animal are something found in odd cartoons or sci-fi movies, when some fierce beast's "guts" get spilled after the hero slays them.
But the little ones learn about the Life Cycle.
From Seed to Plant
From Catapillar to Butterfly
or from Egg, to Tadpole, to Metamorph, to Frog..
the later, I just had to work up in fiber...
I am working up the pattern, to share with you here on the FiberDoodles by K4TT Blog. The pattern(s) will consist of the Tadpole, the Matamorph and the Frog. The eggs and the water lily were ad-libbed on the fly and I didn't write down exactly HOW I made it - but the rest I hope to have up tomorrow for anyone who feels like making a little science project :)
