Animal Attraction
Photograph by David McLain

Science is taught through touch at the Alabama School for the Blind, where the Woods Science Center's taxidermy zoo shows students—like fourth graders Christopher Willis and Mercedes Chisolm—how big a real bear hug might be. "The fur, the teeth, the size all teach the kids about the animals' adaptations to the environment," says science teacher Sinikka Smothers.
