Mr. Flappy Gets Eaten
In school, you and your teachers might have watched a caterpillar turn into a butterfly, raised a pet guinea pig, or in this case, raised a pet goldfinch. These cute yellow birds are friendly and chirpy. But during this school experiment, when the teacher released the goldfinch into the wild, a monumental moment in its life, it was immediately captured by a falcon. The 24 horrified middle schoolers had a tough life experience, right before their eyes. Even though it didn’t have a happy ending, the children learned more in one moment than they would have, had the bird successfully flown into the wild (Cheezburger).
