Cell Examination


On Friday, we watched a Bill Nye DVD called Cells. This introduced the students to the concept that cells, although we can't see them, are in all things that live. Cells eat, they grow, they make more of themselves (replicate). There are millions of different types of cells. Dog cells are different than bird cells, which are different than plant cells.

We then used our microscopes to look at onion cells.

I still have a microscope and enjoy looking at things I cannot see with my eye only. This experience may just excite one of them to want to be a scientist. Good stuff Susan.
