Nakia Posted February 22, 2012 Share Posted February 22, 2012 How young is too young for dissections? My almost 9 yr old daughter really loves anything "blood and guts." She loves to talk about bodies and how they function, and she loves to watch animal surgeries and stuff like that on TV. She talks about being a vet all the time. So tonight, I was getting ready to feed our snake, and she asked if she could dissect the mouse. I didn't let her, of course, but then I got to wondering if I could get her something simple to dissect. My oldest has zero interest in dissecting anything, and I made it all the way through nursing school without dissecting and don't plan to start now. But my husband said he would help her. Any thoughts? Suggestions on where to start? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
