Class Experience

Successfully use microscope to view samples. (Lo/ Med/ High Power)
Make slides from the list of choices. 
Take digital pictures of view to share.
I have taught in-person Biology labs that frequently used microscopes and slides made in lab. Incorporating technology allows students to see more clearly what they are looking for and share what they are seeing, allowing for an enhanced lab experience.

Personally I am an ever curious Biologist - I've studies mammalogy, marine biology, ornithology, microbiology, and more. In my classroom I encourage my students to explore and follow there curiosity, ask questions and find answers. I enjoy incorporating traditional learning with technology, helping students gain a deeper understanding material in practical ways. 
Collect samples for lab.
Compound Microscope Blank slides & cover slips (at least 2) Eye dropper Challenge options: feather hair (human and animal) chilled blank slide, chilled clear nail polish *(See video link on class page) pond water sample or aquarium (with algae, decaying leaves or other sediment), coffee filter
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This lab assumes your learner has a compound microscope - Recommended: optical lens 10x and/ or 25x, objective lenses 10x, 40x, 100x. They will also need a few blank slides, cover slips, and eye dropper. 

Please let me know any special needs or interests.
