Science - Biology
Standard 2 Objective 3
3 class periods of 60 minutes each
Students will collect samples and bring them to school to look at underneath the microscope. They will keep a journal of their observations and drawings and summarize their findings.
Time Needed: 20 minutes each period for 2 weeks
Safety considerations: Students should be cautioned about cells scraped off of rotting meat or other sources of harmful bacteria. They should not collect blood or body secretions for reasons of health and sanitation.
Students should have used the microscope and seen cells and cell parts previous to doing this activity. A cheek and onion cell lab would be a good background activity.
