I'm currently teaching a unit on the body. Today's Science lesson was on the digestive system. I always brace myself for the comments and questions that come with teaching about digestion. After the children had half a minute to get their giggles out about the ensuing waste that comes with digesting food, we moved on to a "serious" discussion...
Mrs. Lai, why is our poop always brown?
Mrs. Lai, if the food we eat is all sorts of colors, why isn't our poop rainbow?
Mrs. Lai, how come when we pee sometimes its yellow and sometimes it's light yellow and other times it's white?
Oh...I love my job. And...I answered every last one of those questions.
