Even though dead things "disappear" when other organisms consume them, we realized that living things are an important part of this "disappearance" process. We returned to the dead raccoon that started our figuring out process to realize that at one time, it was a baby raccoon growing into adulthood. We read through an article to see just what the raccoon eats/consumes and built out a model to show where all these "pieces" of dead organisms are going!
