Today in science:
Me: Humans are at the top of the food chain because they have the ability to hunt and eat nearly everything. In China, at the markets, they sell all sorts of things like roasted cockroaches and barbeque snake. On a dare, I ate bbq snake once.
Student 1: Did it taste like chicken?
Me: It was burnt, so it tasted like charcoal.
Student 2: My dad said when he was younger, he would catch rabbits and eat them.
Me: Yes, people can eat rabbits. But that story makes me a little sad. Do you know why?
Students (all): ::blank but curious stares::
Me: Because I have a rabbit at home.
Students (all): ::bursts out laughing::
I love teaching science at the elementary level. They are just so naturally curious about the world. I wish I could have science lessons every day.
