Hay Seed and City Slicker are learning about blood-sucking worms that have been used medically since the time of ancient Egypt. In the past, physicians applied these worms to a sick patient’s body to sip his/her blood for curing everything from headaches to pneumonia to tonsillitis.

Today, this little animal has helped heal wounds and restore circulation in blocked blood vessels, especially in modern-day surgeries involving reattachment of a body part.

For a chance to win $25 Amazon gift card, do some research and answer the following:

  • Give the page number where the jar is located.

  • Identify the bloodsuckers.

  • Learn more about these animals’ medicinal abilities by watching a YouTube video.

  • Would you feel comfortable having medical treatment provided by blood-sucking worms?
