Why Did You Make Weird And Gross Passages?

Kids love the "ick factor", and our world has plenty of it.  Strange microbes, weird bugs, and odd historical facts are great for helping students learn how science concepts apply to daily life.

Yes, this monkey is actually on my boat!

Okay, okay.  I have an admission to make.  I LOVE the weird and gross factor of nature too.  This love for nature inspires the passages that I create.  My ultimate goal is to make learning fun, and help students build an internal motivation to read.
