Shells For Science

We studied mollusks today. Here we are sanding shells to see what kind of shell it is.
  
 

 It's a mud whelk, you see.

That is so cool! We don't have easy access to shells here, but we have done some cool human A&P experiments this year. I have pictures...I haven't blogged them yet...

LOL. You know what? These shells were purchased at Old Time Pottery! HA! It's actually kind of hard to find these shells on the beaches here. Beach lovers go early in the morning to gather them so when the rest of us get to the beach, they're gone.

That IS cool! We can't find cool shells like that at our beaches either. Caleb loves to bring home shells and they are those ugly broken grey things. Not sure what they are.
