UPM: Human and Animal Anatomy Museums

Recently in January our science co-op went to UPM to visit their dairy farm, human anatomy museum and animal anatomy museum. It was a really good field trip. Friendly staff and the kids had a great time.

The children got to see cows, watched them eat and how they prepare and clean the cows for milking  and the milking process itself (using machine). Reese was fascinated by cow dunk and started throwing little pebbles on them to form patterns! Crazy boy.

One happy boy!

Going out of the farm.... who would have thought that there is such a beautiful place in the city!

Next we drove to the medical faculty to visit the human anatomy museum. A pretty doctor was there to give the children a guided tour. She was really good with the kids, gave us lots of information about certain health related issues and of course explaining a few body system to the kids with the many models in the museum. After the guided tour the we were given light snacks before proceeding to the veterinarian faculty. No guided tour here but a technician was on hand to answer questions. Many animal skeletons on display.
