We ended the homeschool year with a few Science labs.  We dissected a dogfish shark which Maddi really got into.   Her favorite part was seeing how the eyes look behind the lens.  We also swabbed a few icky places like Sam's water bowl and Drew's hockey skates  them transferred the contents of the swabs onto agar petri dishes.  Then we put them in a dark, damp place for a week.  After a week, we checked the results, and YIKES.  The kids loved it though, and I'm grateful to take the summer off!

Any idea what's growing?
Where can I get petri dishes?
