Experiencing God's World through the Microscope
September 19, 2012
The seventh grade Life Science class started their study of the cell by first learning about the invention of the microscope. Then, students were able to experience the wonders of God’s world by looking through microscopes at different plant, animal, and protist slides. After viewing the slides, students drew and colored what they saw. The eight different microscope stations included a diverse range of slides such as a fruit fly, “striated” muscle tissue, beautiful skeletons of the radiolarian plankton type organisms, a feather, and a paramecium. A favorite exercise involved looking at three types of mold and wondering if the “orange” mold was really attacking the “green” mold!
