Connected 2011 Level 2: ‘Saffron’s Skeleton’
Ministry of Education NZ
In “Saffron’s Skeleton”, osteologist George demonstrates to ten-year-old Bruno the processes he uses to clean and preserve the bones of Saffron, a recently deceased chicken. The whole experience, including George’s enthusiastic and knowledgeable approach to his work, provides Bruno with a sense of wonder and curiosity and a greater understanding of skeletons and evolutional relationships.
