In class, we’ve been studying animal classifications and life cycles for science. Yesterday I had just finished a lesson on metamorphosis when a discussion about different animal life cycles ensued. It went a little like this…
Miss Delight – Mammals, like dogs, horses and people, don’t go through metamorphosis. Our changes are smaller. Our arms and legs grow, we get heavier, and we get taller as we grow up.
Student #1 – Not everyone gets taller, you didn’t
Student #2 – My mom is taller than you.
Student #3 – My brother is this much taller than you (measuring about 12 inches with his hands) and he’s only in 5th grade!
Student #4 – Everyone I know is taller than you Miss Delight.
