We're gearing up for a lengthy study of the human body. This week, Tessa learned about cells by taking a look at a rather large example that can be seen without a microscope!
- Watched Bill Nye the Science Guy: Cells DVD by Disney.
- Read Greg's Microscope by Millicent E. Selsam.
- Completed RSO Cell Lab #1: An Egg is a Cell.
This was a great quick and easy lab that provided some basic hands-on knowledge of one special type of cell. Next week, we'll dip our toes a little deeper.
|Tessa inspected the tiny holes of an egg shell. These holes allow air and water in and out of the cell.|
|After comparing her lab diagram to a real egg, Tessa labeled and colored its parts.|
