In this one-time class, students will learn the science behind many 'gross' things in nature.....vomit, snot, pus, bites, and stings.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
To study the science behind the necessary functions of vomit, pus, snot, etc not only for humans but for other animal species as well. 
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years and homeschooled my daughter (who has now graduated) for 10 years. I have my Bachelors in Biology and my Masters in Healthcare Administration. I have lead students through hundreds of dissections and we frequently view stomach contents and nasal cavity contents (snot) on our specimens. Working in healthcare, I have been exposed to each of these things (vomit, snot, stings, pus) in humans but know that they all serve a purpose. Let's discover what they mean together!

This class features videos of a shark vomiting, a frog vomiting up its entire stomach, and a baby bird vomiting to ward off predators. There are also many pictures of infected wounds (pus), and animals modeling their snot (sometimes frozen)! If these things are sensitive for your learner, please be aware.
