Forensics Day 3

Yesterday I took the kids on my first ever field trip (as a teacher) to The Body Worlds Exhibit in NYC. The exhibit itself was awesome–the poses that they froze the bodies were amazing, and the sheer amount of bodies and organs that they had was cool too–smokers lungs were definitely the takeaways for the kids.

The one thing that struck me was the ages of the bodies. There was one spinal column with scoliosis which was really young (you could tell by the size of the hips). To think… that a death was caused so early by this disease… and that the parents wanted this body donated to science afterwards. #respect
