I think that overall this is

I think that overall this is a good lesson. This is a very important topic for students of all ages to learn about, and can be extended in many different ways. However, I am concerned about being able to get real fur. Would there be another alternative rather than buying a fur coat? Also, I am concerned about the safety of the motor oil, even if you have discussed the hazards.

Interesting lesson

I think this is a good lesson that will show the students the affects of fossil fuel on the environment. I am wondering about the set up and clean up time... which is a normal issue for most science activities.
