~TAKE A CLOSER LOOK~

This mural requires some careful looking.

What do you notice about the body of the cat in the mural?

What kinds of body systems do you see there? (Skeletal, circulatory, digestive, integumentary a.k.a. skin/fur)

Notice the fish in the mural. Do you know what kind of fish that is? Why do you think the artist chose that kind of fish for the mural? (We have salmon in RI and the artist includes native species in his work).
