WHAT ARE OUR BODIES MADE OF?Here are some photos from our time today in the Secondary Science Lab with Mr Hewitt. Thanks Mr Hewitt for letting us use the microscopes to investigate the detail of our bodies. Thank you also for sharing your awesome knowledge with us!
UNDER THE MICROSCOPE
Can you guess what these photos are of when seen through a microscope?
We looked at a ruler through the microscope to see just how much we would be zooming in. We tried two of the three lenses, 4x and 10x.
A LITTLE BIT CHEEKY
We looked at our cheek cells through a microscope. You can't see them with your eye. Pretty amazing to think our very own body was under a microscope. Here is what you need:
- A microscope
- A willing mouth
- A toothpick for gently scraping the inside of your cheek to collect cells
- A cover slip
- A glass slide
- Methylene Blue (the blue stain)
We also looked at a strand of our hair. Very interesting.
Look what we found on the shelf! A model of a heart that you can take apart. What a find after learning about our heart on Friday.
We may have spotted a few other things that caught our eye, such as this shark jaw.
God is amazing. Full stop.
