Here is what some happy teachers are saying about the Death Investigation Stages of Decay:

My students loved using the Science of Curiosity resources last year. I purchased a lot of them. This one was remarkable because it is difficult to present decomposition due to the gross-out factor but this resource was clearly – and respectfully done. Thank you once again!                – S.J.                 July 28, 2021

Great resource and easy to use. Students were learning at their own pace.                   – Patricia K.           April 20, 2021

This was a great supplemental activity to use after the lesson of stages of decomposition while some students are at home while the other half is in class and it to cold to actually watch a corpse decay.                  – Robert M.          February 17, 2021
