It was a whole new world of micro size! Mr. H came with his marvelous microscopes this week and demonstrated how they worked, how to take care of them and even let us try them out. Mr. K even came to demonstrate and assist with the contrast microscope.
The students had collected samples from around our campus and their homes. We had pond water, dead bugs, live bugs (mostly spiders!), and even saw a mosquito larvae (circulation and all!).
Students were able to witness that ecosystems exist even in a drop of water. We could spend a whole month of days like this one!
Thanks Mr. H and Mr. K, for volunteering your time and thoughtful insight into the world of microscopes. We loved it!
