"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Cockroach Anatomy 2 December 2010
Dissection of cockroach with dad! Yeah, right.
These two cockroaches were found under the bed while I changed the linen! It was my first encounter at home. That showed how dirty my home was and it is time to spring clean.
When the dissection was going on, I recollect memory of how I was made to stand outside the classroom, for refusing to dissect a cockroach. And I was the only loser in class. sheessh.
finding info from the google. En lifted another cockroach to the dissection table.
Left- lifting the esophagus. Right- Hui had no fear cutting the legs off. EeyyKk, yay she did that.
