Grossology – the study of things that are gross.
Last Friday, the girls and I went to the science museum to see the Grossology Exhibit. I would never had known anything about it if it was not for the public library’s summer reading program.
Free tickets = fun!
Being a nurse, and a bit of a science nerd, I was completely in my element.
Now, for kids, nothing is more fun than things that are gross.
Here is the first thing we saw when we walked into the exhibit.
You know there are good times ahead when the first topic up for discussion is gas! Each part of the exhibit touched base on a bodily function. There were little tidbits of info that I made the 8 year old read to her sisters. You have to educate any chance you get.
We learned about snot from faucet man.
Then the girls each took a turn learning how food turns into feces. They really thought the machine was scanning them. I love my girls.
We learned a little tid bit about King Tut.
Then played inside a giant nose.
We had a little spare time to perform an emergency organectomy.
It is another memory with my girls to put in the books. We have a few more to accomplish before school starts in a couple of weeks!
What fun things have you done with your kids this summer?
