I have a confession. I have never actually opened the giblet bag, and I thought it contained an organ called a giblet. I wasn't sure what this was, only it was obviously something turkeys had, and we don't. It turns out that giblets are not an organ, (OK, don't laugh or wonder how I could have not known that.) but are actually the heart, liver, and gizzard. I've eaten all of these before, and they are quite tasty and not at all gross, but we weren't going to eat them today. We were going to dissect them!
|These are the neck, heart, gizzard, and liver.|
We also talked about what the different organs were used for, and what was similar to ours, and what was different. Such as what a gizzard is used for and why we don't have one.
We then looked up some info online an examined the bird diagram below.
