"Dr. Michael Horowitz was headlining a fifth-grade science lesson on the human body. His prop was a human cadaver arm, which he opened to show its
nerves and other parts. At least one child vomited; five children left the classroom feeling ill. Another child fainted almost immediately. The
experience angered some Fairview parents, kept school board member Shirley Wiley's phone ringing yesterday and had school officials scrambling with
damage control much of the day... Horowitz appeared surprised by the complaints yesterday and said that he has visited the school in previous years
bearing cadaver eyes, ears and a brain."
Yeah I thought that was over the top. In high school biology we did frogs in semester 1 and pigs fetus in semester two. Alot of people had problems
with that. But 5th graders and a severed arm, thats out of friggen control.
Thatd be kind of a cool lesson....but gross. We got owl pellets and as Nerdling said, opened them up and got the bones of the rodents.....and does
anyone think that that arm you picture looks like a camel?
In 5th grade we dissected owl pellets
6th grade- cow eyeball
7th grade- chicken wing, and sheep brain
When we dissected the cow eyeball, the girl I was partners with grabbed the scapel and poked the eyeball, and this purpley liquid squirted on her. She
screamed and ran around the room. It was hilarious.
