ms meghann, ms meghann!: categorical classification

May 15, 2011

thursday, may 5

k. = 7 y.o. female

we have been classifying objects we found outside as living, nonliving, or man made.

k.: “i know about hair! hair is man made, because jesus made it!”

we might need to add another category.


we go on to discuss the fact that it’s okay to leave nonliving natural objects (dead bugs, orange peels, etc.) on the ground, because they will decompose and become part of the earth, but not okay to leave man made objects on the ground, because they typically will not.

k.: (quietly) “ms meghann, is it okay to leave a dead human on the ground?”

as long as you cut the hair off first.
