Reason #88,241 why I love my job.

We are practicing scientific illustrating for the big science expo project that is underway in my 8th grade science class. I gave the kids an assignment to draw something, anything --- any lab procedure, with just 3 simple rules:

1. Use rulers for all straight lines

2. Labels must be horizontal

3. Don't draw hands unless you know how.

I didn't specify what lab to illustrate, since we are still in planning stages of choosing our topics. I told them they could even draw an imaginary procedure that they might perform in the future.

Here is what Sarah gave me:

Brilliant, eh? This is the same girl, by the way, who was the mastermind behind My Little Boa.

My kids rock. My class rocks!!!

I understand the bathing suit thing, it's a great idea, actually. But I don't understand the surgery.

The good teachers always made up for the bad ones. I guess it's the same for students.
