Today we had a visit from Igor and learned a bit of carbon dioxide chemistry. This week we explore the characteristics of living things and dive into cells! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY ... what a bummer!
Today we took the Show What You Know for microscope parts and use. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to take the SWYK when you return AND read a bit about the history of how cells were discovered AND who created the Cell Theory (All living things are made of cells; Cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things; and All cells come from other cells). We'll discuss more Monday!
Today was our last day (for now) to zoom in and observe with microscopes. Don't worry... we will use scopes throughout the year as we zoom in and out to study life! Feel free to explore this site's VIRTUAL POND DIP and see some of the critters we saw today and more! Tomorrow is our SWYK on microscope parts and use. Be sure to review your parts AND know how to use the scopes! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY OR ANYTIME THIS WEEK you still SWYK tomorrow... be ready! REVIEW REVIEW REVIEW!
Today we continued using the microscopes! We made our own slides to use! Tomorrow we will use the dissecting (AKA binocular) microscopes and learn how to use depression slides. Tonight you will continue your review for the SWYK Friday. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you missed more microscope fun! Come in during Study Hall tomorrow morning (or lunch) and SEE what you missed! THIS IS A FUN SITE FOR EXPLORATION AND REVIEW if you are reviewing today or even want more microscope stuff!
Today we USED the microscopes! Fun stuff. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you should watch the video below and then get scoping upon your return. Review for the SWYK Friday: THIS SITE IS HELPFUL!
Today we began our understanding of the parts and use of the microscope. Tomorrow we use the scopes! Tonight you need to begin the learning of the parts and their jobs (SWYK on Friday). IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can PRINT THIS INFORMATION and attach in your notebook on page 36. Remember there are always Giants in Science who ask questions and find answers ... wonder what Avogadro asked?
