Don't ask! Well, I guess some explanation is needed here. We have been studying about reproduction of animals in fifth grade science. The kids get a giggle out of the mention of testes and sperm, however are less giggly at ovaries and eggs.Drawing pictures on the whiteboard is always an adventure with 10 year olds, but from their drawings, they seem to "get it". So one girl came to class with some winter hats as gifts for some of her classmates. Somehow during the trying on of the hats and the wearing of them that first day, they got the nickname "Sperm Hat". I thought they looked more Dr. Seussy but hey, at least they were speaking English and making a valid comparison based on the sperm pictures in their textbook.
Now you know!
