Leo's Fishheads - Gr 1-4 Science

Leech Gathering

Today, the Fishheads meet one of Leo's favourite snacks: Leeches! Christian and Sayat head to Algonquin Provincial Park with Sebastian, a scientist and curator from the Royal Ontario Museum. He helps them wade through the muck in search of North American Medicinal Leeches to use for the ROM's newest exhibit. Along the way, Sebastian teaches the FishHeads how to properly handle leeches, and what to do if one latches on!
