This is a favorite at my house, but I am not sure how well known it is. Joseph got the cd-rom version for his birthday last year. LOL

I think your clipboard served up the wrong link for you, Teri. Was this (http://www.froguts.com/) what you were thinking of?

That was bizarre! I don't know what that was about. LOL I fixed it.

I like that much better than carving up a real frog. I love frogs so I don't think I could do that to one.

The demo was fantastic!! I'm considering this for Zack because he was disappointed to find out that the dissection summer camp locally was for grades 3-6 only.

I'm not sure I even want to watch it online, LOL I certainly couldn't do the real thing.

I'm planning to use these types of resources when we hit that point in our studies. I was a biology major and heavy into Science even in high school so I've done the worm (the worst for me), the frog and the cat dissections. I'd much rather do a computer/video based demonstration than deal with the chemical smell in my house.

Joseph asked for it for his birthday last year when he was turning 9. It definitely was not part of anything we were doing in school yet. I just let him play with it.

That's what I'm planning to do, too; just let Zack play around with it...he already enjoys the EdHead virtual hip surgery and virtual brain surgery so these dissections will be fun for him.

I got Digital Frog back when it was still free a few years ago (and Noah was still in preK but I figured we'd use it at some point!), but I think it only has the frog on it, not all the other stuff Froguts has. For the owl pellet, we ordered a real one from some company and it was fun pulling it apart. You can also see a cow eye dissection for free at http://www.exploratorium.edu/learning_studio/cow_eye/step01.html

I might get Froguts once we hit biology again, in 5th grade. Thanks!

The frog demo is still free. That satisfied Joseph for a few years before we had to get the full deal.

The frog demo is still free.

Teri, were you talking about Digital Frog? Because that one is now $85 for a home license (http://www.digitalfrog.com/store/home.php?cat=266). If you know of a way to get it for free, could you post the link?
