PEACHTREE CITY - "Oh, see his eyeball!"
"Oh, yeah. I feel the maxillary!"
"I didn't know that it had two livers. I just think that's so interesting!"
The exclamations of third graders at Landmark Chistian Academy has hit a fever pitch.
"Get your pointer and see if you can find the tympana or the ear drums on your frog," said Diane Calsbeek, their teacher.
Their enthusiasm hits the right mark for teacher Calsbeek, whose excitement matches that of the students.
"This is Christmas. This is the highlight of my school year, because when they open that cavity and say, look, I see a fat body, I don't know, I get very excited about this," said Calsbeek."You can hear it in the room today. They'll never look at a frog again, the same. They've now been studying him, the outside, the inside. Touching him does something remarkable."
