Science with Mr Bourton
On Tuesday Mr Bourton came in to do our science class and with him he brought a variety of animal artifacts to show to the class. They ranged from frogs in sealed bags to dog skulls sawed in half, but what most people wanted to see was a complete snake skeleton (although a few vertebrae’s were missing). We were studying vertebrates and how we could distinguish them from other animal groups. We also tried a bit of scientific drawing in which we used the dead animal remains as models. As always Mr Bourton fascinated us with his scientific mind and by the end, I think we all knew twice as much about vertebrates and scientific drawing. So thanks, Mr Bourton.
