If the Grow-a-frog tadpole is dead on arrival:
Would you still make a science project out of it by viewing the expired taddy under the microscope?
Grow-a-frog, will ship a replacement, as per their “live delivery guarantee”, so the children will ultimately get a live froglett to watch day-to day.
Yet, I’m debating whether my young scholars would find examining the deceased specimen to be an educational exercise or a morbid one.
In general my children are pretty “matter of fact” about animal deaths. Finding a dead bird in the yard is likely to inspire a philosophical remark, but no major grief.
What do you think? Would you put taddy on a slide?
